Love’s Labour’s Won

Summer ignited, soul burst alive
Newly more completely myself
I danced for joy, then realized
By shedding my layers
I was also shedding
Connections native to those layers
And you with them.

Autumn creaked in, decaying and hopeless
And all the leaves flared up
Obscuring my vision, making you
Impossible to find, but
I was still searching
For a direct line
From my core to yours.

Winter laid all things bare, cooled the air
And you blazed your own path
To the center where the things that matter
Live and grow and dance
We were finally reveling in
The true value of ourselves
Individually and together.

Spring fairly oozed with love wrapped in birdsong
All the rose and jasmine and citrus flowers
Prolific and heady and most deliciously
In perpetual bloom
We were busily embroidering
The walls with stars
To light our way home.


Thor and I have had quite a year. A partnership unraveling, stuttering toward recovery, and then thundering so far past our previous markers of good, great, and phenomenal that I can no longer clearly recall our former way of being.

We almost lost one another.

No one’s fault, just a simple matter of having drifted away from our own hearts and therefore each other’s.

And now we are found.



Lend us your wishes

My friends need your help. If you’ve been reading here for awhile, you know about a little boy named Caemon. He has leukemia, recently underwent a marrow transplant, and while it seemed he was heading home in the not too distant future, he is currently having a relapse.

If you believe in prayer, pray. If you meditate, hold onto health for Caemon in the space between breaths. If you smudge sage, light candles, communicate with gods, spirits, or ancestors, or simply close your eyes and burn a wish into the depths of your heart, please do so.
