Tonight Forest and James and I had a dance party and Forest broke out a whole new set of moves and when I said “Wow!” he said “I’m not even busy yet.”
James is in the middle of a divorce. She is taking risks with her life. She is busy all the time, revising everything she thought was sure in the name of her own happiness.
I am in the calm after that storm. I have been in slow seas for some time, remembering what wind catches my sails. Savoring the wind, savoring words: Wild. Creek. Story. Initiation. Sap. Rising.
And I'm not even busy yet.
