I was invited to a sacred play date yesterday by my friend, Lori.
to create something true. from clay.
welcoming women. love that! like-minded ladies. even better!
what a super-cool few hours.
we watched. rolled. molded. watched some more. talked. learned. started over. and above all: became present in the moment.
and then we slammed our pieces on the floor!
at first, we all voiced our opinions about the idea.
whaaaat?? no way! I love what I have created!! I don’t want to destroy something that I have made! I never make anything, why destroy it?!
(all this despite the self-deprecating thoughts that showed up after we first started molding!)
so Lori, stood up. and smashed her perfectly crafted mug.
and I pitched my tri-skele. from my seated position at the table.
it was so small. no one noticed. but I didn’t care. I just loved that I did it!
and then one by one. we all stood up and slammed our pieces on the hardwood floor.
the three pieces I created…a tribute…to what is coming. my book. note: one survived the liberation. 😉
in the end, we were all in awe of creating something even more beautiful and meaning-full.
love, love that!
so cool. and we are going to glaze our smashed pieces in November! awesome.
of course while all this was going on, my brain started calculating.
how can I bring myers-briggs and eft to a play date?
don’t know the details yet, but I will.
umm…just have to finish each course first!
what a fantastic weekend!
now, I must go study.
