I know that some of you haven’t seen Kate for many years. Because of this, and because it’s been at least a year or so since most of us have seen her in the physical, I’m posing this short video for all of you to enjoy (from October 13, 2011).
Ahhhh, yes, it’s been a while since I’ve said hello here. So HELLO!!!! The past many weeks (or so) have been very full indeed . . . Vermont to New York to South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming and Idaho. And finally back home to California – YAY!!
I love approaching life with curiosity. And yet sometimes I forget to approach people in my life – myself included – with this same sense of openness and wonder.
Greetings from Burlington, VT!
Over the past couple of months, I’ve been contemplating how to update my relationship with Kate into present time. A reminder of this came to me last night in an unexpected moment . . .
After arriving in Vermont on the new moon and Summer Solstice, the beginning of a new cycle, I went to the labyrinth that Kate and I often walked upon arrival and departure from this beautiful place. This time, the experience offered me a metaphor that expresses much of what I learned from Kate and find valuable integrating into my life.
It’s June 10, 2012 and I’m about to drive through Kansas.
Feels appropriate that the state referred to as the “Heartland” would be next for me. The heart is the inner space I was able to connect with more deeply in Boulder CO. Relaxing and rejuvenating.
It’s June 7th and I’m on the road, traveling in my van (the Great van Gonzo, aka the Gonz) across the country as I move into the next phase of my life.
Since Kate died in December 2011, I’ve been intending to share more of my internal experiences, with the hope that the personal is also universal. I have much to pass along and appreciate the opportunity to do that with you.
Get Your Spark of Madness On for Holy Fool’s Day!
Real Speaking E-Letter by Gail Larsen, March 30, 2011
“You’re only given a little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it.” – Robin Williams
What if, instead of breathing to catch our breath from the last thing we just said, we actually inhaled in preparation to inspire the words or sounds about to be expressed? Susan Lincoln’s idea to INSPIRE as the intention of an INHALE was truly a gift for me.
Finally, the playfulness of laughter yoga is spreading into our serious world! Check out the recent mainstream coverage in The New Yorker, the New York Times and in Forbes Magazine.
