Again, this has been a week of fabulous posts. I don’t know about you – I am keeping a running list of other ‘A’ words I plan on writing about: Altars, Air, Advice, Abundance, Affirmations…
Last week I wrote about creating a written document to give to the future. I am reminded of a story I read at the beginning of my pilgrimage by Judith Merkle Riley: A Vision of Light about a mystic healer. Unlike the majority medieval women who were mystics and midwives, I am literate. I don’t have to hire someone to write for me. I don’t have to hide my writings because of my sex or out of fear that I will be burned.
My mitochondria DNA ends with my son. But I can pass this to those I choose. I can share my beliefs, practices and struggles. I can share the unspoken piece of my life, my hidden books, my recipes and stories. What I find exciting about this project is the prospect to publically reflect on my journey, honor my teachers and get my bearings of my compass.
Ultimately, I hope to learn from you. Yes, to learn and celebrate your gifts that are different than mine.
Thank you and may your path be blessed.
