HAUNTEDis a word that denotes an unresolved parallel, a presence that is not quite a presence; a visitation by the as yet unspeakable - it is also emblematic of the longing for incarnation, of an unbearable substrate of wanting, of not finding a home in this world or in the next, someone or something that walks the halls of our house or our mind looking for what will help to lay its own self to rest. What haunts us is something that seeks its own disappearance, it wants to become fully itself and so depart. If we feel continually haunted over time we begin to become ghost-like ourselves and roam with intent whilst not quite knowing the object of our intention. Looking in the mirror, our face begins to look like our not quite incarnated life. We walk not exactly existing in the world we visit. Like the spirits and half-beings we imitate at Halloween, we roam the streets as if looking for an abode on this earth we are unable to locate, demanding tribute from those who dwell within. The …

I listened to this story yesterday and it was really moving.  Not so much because it spoke to me directly, though it was powerful, but because I hope there is someone who will take the time to listen, and maybe for her it will make a difference.... I don't know but perhaps for everyone there is some tipping point for self forgiveness... And maybe it begins with a mantra that can help let go of whatever it is that is holding you back.  I don't know, but maybe....

Here is another physical visualization of energy and intuitive communication.
Maybe turn the music down when you watch this.  It was a bit much for me, but the
images are incredible.  I want to paint something with this energy in it...for me
it is the visualization of the unseeable made visible.  Like the energy between
two people that can be felt, but not seen....

The World I Live In

I visited my friend Paulus a few weeks ago and he read me this poem, from Mary Oliver's new book Felicity which hadn't come out yet.   They are friends, so he knew it already.  I met her once with him in the garden at Penland when she was visiting him.  He read it from his journal, where he had written it out by hand, and I meant to copy it down, though I ran out of time and never did.  But it made it's way into the New York times October 14, so I can share it now.  It spoke to me...happy I rediscovered it before too much time had passed.

The World I Live In

I have refused to live
locked in the orderly house of
  reasons and proofs.
The world I live in and believe in
is wider than that.  And anyway,
  what's wrong with Maybe?

You wouldn't believe what once or
twice I have seen.  I'll just
  tell you this:
only if there are angels in your head will you
  ever, possibly, see one.


I love it.  xox
