Round Four ~ { week 3 }

Sketch -
Charlie's sketch book has seen a lot of action lately.  I love drawing with him.  I love to watch him create his characters; some are funny and friendly while others are fierce and scary.  What all of these creatures have in common is that they are created within the safe bubble of childhood.  They are created from a mind that is still free from self judgement and therefore self containment.  They come to life on the page without the need to be perfectly drawn, and that makes them perfect.

Caged -
As she ventures farther and farther from the safety of our home, I have two choices:  Have faith in her decisions and abilities or lock her up.  And while the latter may seem the safer choice, it's not - both fill me with fear.  I'm afraid of holding her too tight and I'm afraid of letting her go.

" Because I'm still in love with you - on this harvest moon"

Gather -
The campfire has always been a place for us to connect - maybe it's a primitive instinct that brings out our desire to gather - maybe it's the darkness that surrounds and the security of the fire that makes us feel safe to be ourselves and tell our stories with honesty and with truth.  Around the fire we laugh, we remissness, and share the best parts of ourselves.

Rain or Shine  -
Someone felt the first rain drop, then someone else felt another.  And then, from high up in the sky, we heard the rush of rain.  It rained all night, and then all day.  It's a good thing that we don't go camping just to enjoy the weather, because this weekends weather was terrible.  The rain was relentless and it was cold.  And I still had a great weekend.

Quiet Your Mind -
In this quiet space, with the sun warming my face; I feel contentment wash over me. I feel gratitude for my full and sometimes crazy life.  In this quiet space, I know that my life, with all its ups and downs is still, pretty darn good.
