A journey can become a sacred thing...
Where you will discover
More of your hidden life,
And the urgencies
That deserve to claim you.
— John O’Donohue, “For the Traveler”
Last night, as I addressed boxes, prepared tissue paper and twine, and wrote thank you notes, I lifted my head for a moment and took a breath. And I shook my head and laughed. These past two months of finishing and releasing The Mending Space book have yielded such beautiful fruits. But I also had my head down for so much of it, plowing through my to-do list, trying desperately not to make any irreparable errors. But now, as I prepare to click the big orange “submit order” button tomorrow, I can see it now. I can see the journey and how it has become a path where I’ve discovered “the urgencies that deserve to claim me.” I cannot thank you enough for walking alongside me, dear friends. This book would not be what it is without your support, wisdom, and grace. You have made the mending space a beautiful circle of light. So, on this mend monday, let me just ask, if you’d like to share: what journeys have you taken that have opened your heart and mind to those urgencies that deserve to claim you? You all have such colorful stories and sage insights…I can’t wait to hear what you share. Sending you much love and light today…
