The following is a love note to the awakening of all that is moving in and through me. It’s about the harmonizing of my inner and outer life— through relationships with self, home, community, earth…..with each and every beloved other.
For today I feel like the following offering, written/performed by Rising Appalachia, is speaking for me.
Thank you for your presence here.
from Rising Appalachia:
This is a love song.
But it’s really about being in harmony
with ones self,
bringing full throttle honesty to the table, to another persons voracious appetite,
so that you don’t get lost in the mix of the psychedelic upheaval that is love.
This song is about offering truth,
about asking questions,
about bringing ritual back into the devotional process of amor.
It is laying bits of metal and silver and moonlight at the feet of your beloved, like the bower bird in the forest.
Courtship as a rite of passage.
It demands that we are awake for one another.
Awake means alive.
Awake means listening.
Awake means on fire.
Awake means fully moved
