If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it’s not your path. Your own path you make with every step you take. That’s why it’s your path.-—Joseph Campbell

Creative Healing

The portal of healing and creativity always takes us into the realm of the spirit.  Angeles Arrien

A garden is the best alternative therapy.  Germaine Greer

The distracted children in yesterday’s afterschool classes were challenging. And then driving home NPR told me of the explosions at the Boston Marathon.

I felt so heavy when I woke up this morning.

Now, with a computer in my lap and the early light and bird song outside my window, I am beginning to feel better.

Now I remember the children’s excitement when they saw the sprouting radishes we planted on Thursday. And their silly conversations as they worked on paper bag puppets they will use to tell “whoppers” on the front porch next week.

Now I remember my plan to plant hyacinth beans and cucumbers this morning.

Creative activity helps.

I don’t have answers for Boston yet. But I’m working on the connection.
