goddess #11

"Indian summer
returned for the day.
How glorious to have
eyes that see
ears that hear
a body to feel the breeze,
soak up the sun,
and connect with the aliveness of the earth
and all things that grow"

May all beings touch their own aliveness with awe and gratitude.

Literally floating on a log in the Charles River, goddess #11 is not far from the Perkins School for the Blind, a wonderful institution that dates back to the days of Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan. Walking in the woods nearby made me keenly aware of how precious this human body truly is and grateful for the sensitivity of our senses and to our amazing ability to learn and adapt to changes in our individual and collective being.
