Just look at the joy on our faces when we creatively consider the Freedom to Be !

Thanks to Karli, Sally, Anna, and Lisa for joining me for the July 18 Juicy Workshop.  I’m always amazed at how much we discover about ourselves and each other when we show up with our hearts and hands to encounter a theme like freedom.  Then we can’t help but carry our wisdom out into the daily world around us!  I believe that creative and spiritual work serves us all.  May it be so.


I believe in all that has never yet been spoken.
I want to free what waits within me
so that what no one has dared to wish for

may for once spring clear
without my contriving.

If this is arrogant, God, forgive me,
but this is what I need to say.
May what I do flow from me like a river,
no forcing and no holding back,
the way it is with children.

Then in these swelling and ebbing currents,
these deepening tides moving out, returning,
I will sing you as no one ever has,

streaming through widening channels
into the open sea.

–Rainer Maria Rilke, Book of Hours, I, 12;
