Today is a down day, as in chill. Taking time to relax, enjoy this beautiful day, dreams of veggies growing in my new soon to be garden, my new book coming soon, bike riding with friends around paradise with masks on, eye candy art, taking time to reread and chronicle some poems ( my life shorts), and just to be! And while I was being, I started writing a new life short. In my head.
And damn it, I had to run to get my computer so I could capture the wave of words. Or they would be gone in a heartbeat. My memory does not retain things sometimes! And the words were pouring out. Thinking about the time we are in, thinking about standing up and speaking my piece, of guiding others to find their truth, to making a stand for our planet and our creatures, and to not eat them, to believe in my own authenticity. to dance with my dreams and my visions and my history, to quit sucking it up sometimes to please others. Everyone has a voice, everyone has a belief, but to help change the planet and the times and our businesses and our choices now is so important. It will never be the same, nor should it be. We are here to stand up and speak up and not be afraid to create and pontificate!
And what is the new normal? What was the old normal? Sitting and comforting and consuming and not acknowledging how the earth was changing, the animals were dying, the air was disgusting, the consumerism was obnoxious. Yet, there was a beauty, lying deep within, a vision of perhaps, of habit breaking, of taste changing, of old ways going away and new norms being set. Of possibilities being seen, if only…
Paul Jarvis wrote today in his Sunday missive, ” Let me explain: normal, for the most part with the global economy and big business has been kind of a burning dumpster fire. It’s been ruining our planet and tearing through finite resources, putting profit over people, and creating a vast chasm of a divide between those at the top and everyone else.”
It can’t be the same, peeps, we need to take a stand and make it better and honor all that came before, and especially all that will come after this crazy time of lockdown and isolation and fear, but also hope and opportunities. For we are all here to live in beauty, to honor the sacred ways, to create, to be the living we all are doing, the bodies that we all have, the relationships we can all be part of, the work that we envision for ourselves, to be part of the whole, the tribe, the circle of life.
And how cool is that? That we have a choice and a chance…
and here is my new life short, called A New Grace
Being a magic maker of dreams
Being an enchantress and a poetess
A goddess of living and loving
Life will never be normal again I hear
But what is normal and was it ever?
My normal is as a sacred rebel,
A dancer to my own drummer
Hearing and seeing and vision questing
Asking for the light, drawing down the light
Singing the songs of my soul, my divine and fucking sacred soul
I have wallowed in, but will not settle
In these times of change, I must stand for my dreams
Some fight for their own visions
And fight for the perpetual sameness
But I believe in my ways
My stories, my visions
My past and my future
And here now in the present
My values, the earth and the creatures,
I have guided many into their own dreams
As I follow mine
To show, to speak up, to guide,
To honor the new ways of living
To honor the life that is changing
Of standing in power and rightness
It will never be the same
Nor should it be…
We have been shown a new way,
We have been shown a change
We have been given a reprieve
We must look beyond the comfort
The ways of yesteryear
The unknowing and the unseeing
The habits of disgrace
Can we step forward into a new grace
A new compassion and passion
As the air unfolds and the dolphins swim
The earth starts to resonate with itself again
Void of the filth and the consumption
Back to the sacred
The sacred tribes will rule if given a chance
If they take to the listening deep
If they allow the chance and the change
To see the wrongs of their ways
The habits to break
The lives to take
The art to create
There is so much beauty and support
To be a way maker and a life changer
