Listening - watching
taking a moment
drawing the world
finding the way to connection
again and again.

In Holland

Another intense and nourishing time
at the first European ALIA conference
(Authentic Leadership in Action).

Before flying home I touch the paper -
catching some traces and patterns of this land -
a different continent and perspective . . .

New Year's Day

Walked out into the woods to draw.
Wanting this to be fun and restorative.
(What was I thinking ?)

The winter woods are so silent, so cold, so stark . . .

Now back in the house
cat purring and stretched out next to me - fire crackling -
I relax into indoor comfort.

But just staying in can get insular and closed.

Going out into winter woods is a touching - a gazing -
upon the loneliness of life -
and I feel stronger for it.
