What if you choose to surround yourself with only the people who lifted you up and engaged and challenged and cared, and those that you run after begging for a crumb of friendship or notice became so unimportant....I am going to remember this, this is how I will live...and as I do..it is unbelievable what shows up in your world to support you

I texted a friend last night who recently lost his brother,as I did mine. His brother was in my graduation class. I like to just make sure he knows someone is thinking of him and his brother. Its important, this is probably the only thing I am truly certain of, it is important to be seen. It is important to reach out. He sent me this Sufi poem:
May the meaning of your life continue to unfold in me.It took my breath away. How beautiful. I will carry those words with me. For me and for all of us....
May the meaning of your life continue to unfold in me

I think I just may be opening to the idea of FOLLOWING a dream...or of the PROCESS of it all. I used to just see the end...if I am not making xxxx by xxx then what good is it? I put no value on the doing of it, but only on the end product.
A wise friend asked me why don't you share your process when we were talking about my art,we need to see process, she said, so we are reminded what goes into doing something. I had dismissed process,it is messy and imperfect and uneasy and scary and sometimes so damn awful that you wonder if you ever had a creative bone in your body. Other times you lose yourself in an amazing wonderful world of your very own making ...
Today, you can get anything you want almost immediately. The concept of waiting for something, having to drive to a library for information, having to wait for The Wizard of Oz to be aired near Halloween (man, I miss that-it was such a wonderful thing...we would count the days down and plan out the whole night...)is foreign to most of us. We only show the best of us -even 'selfies' are carefully edited -and dear lord, if everyone is as happy and fulfilled as their facebook pages show, we would have no self help movement! Maybe its time to show the mess and then we would all heave a huge sigh of relief...because we are all messy and unsure and just making our way.....to what??? Maybe its time to enjoy the way and forget about GETTING there-on all levels
