Years ago, I used to be a bit of a stress head. It didn't matter what was going on, things would often turn into a drama of some kind or another. My children were small, I had two businesses, a relationship…
Things have changed - well children grow up and so do we. But there has been one thing that has drastically changed my life having a profound and deep influence....
When I visited India some years ago, the one thing that stood out to me most was the grace and elegance of the women.
I remember watching and being mesmerized by a band of women working on a two-story building. I was surprised to notice how often they were the ones working on the more physical tasks... Yet here, they moved up the ladders and along the floors like a mystery...
When Michelangelo was asked 'How did he create the David?', he said, "The form is already there, I just take away what it is not."
I spent time with my grandchild the other day. I wonder at who she will be in twenty years time. How will life mould her.
She reminds me of how we are born as a pure expression of love and innocence and then as we grow older, we seem to develop ways of hiding away this love, as protection or survival.
I wonder that our purpose is to be the loving sculptor, to remember this love and find ways to allow what isn't love to fall away, to let down our guard, to reveal who we really are.
