Sometimes when I am struggling in a new time, I like to remember times before that were new... where there was nothing at first.
I decide to take a class in clay. Every one else at the table is busy on their projects. I sit with this hunk of clay in front of me, blank. I pick it up and squish it around in my hands. This is good, maybe just enough for today, I don't have to make any "thing".
The teacher comes by " Clay drys out fast, you need to move fast" How do I move fast? What does that mean? Something about her encouragement gives me permission to play. Not take it so SERIOUSLY. I separate the gob into a few gobs, and stick my finger in, to make a hollowness to build around, a pinchy here and here is sort of looking like a "someone". That is enough!
No, there could be more maybe. I see something in the next gob, a shoulder! I build up, smush up the sides, poke here, scratch, maybe this ok. I can do that again. I am getting tired. I push and two more little beings emerge. I don't know if they look like anything, but I am ok, I did it. I made my first little clay people.
Are you making anything new in your life? How is it going?
I don't keep trackof the moon cycles although they are with us anyway, the energy is supposed to be helpful in cycling through creating and releasing. \
Do you notice this in your life?
