Usually I leave my “blogging” on my blog, but thought to share it here too.
This month I led a service at the UU Church in Pittsfield accompanied by an astonishing musician: Jason Curran. Not only is his music amazing, but the selections he chooses to compliment a service seem magical. If you ever see a listing for a performance of his, gift yourself by attending.
A Very Special Thank You to Jason Curran for his beautiful music and co-creative spirit. Felt like spiritual alchemy in ways I simply cannot explain and will not try at this time. Other than to say, he brought tears to my eyes with his rendition of “Beautiful Dreamer” – he could not have known how special that song is to me, and more so now.
Join us at Twinkle’s Place on the third Wednesday of each month
August 19th – Turtle Moon by Alice Hoffman
What can you trust to be there for you when you most need it?
What would hold you like the sea in this poem?
What would you say ” Yes” to without reserve?
That, yes that, is what you are meant to give your attention to.
by Philip Booth
Lie back daughter, let your head
be tipped back in the cup of my hand.
Gently, and I will hold you. Spread
your arms wide, lie out on the stream
and look high at the gulls. A dead-
man’s float is face down. You will dive
and swim soon enough where this tidewater
ebbs to the sea. Daughter, believe
me, when you tire on the long thrash
to your island, lie up, and survive.
As you float now, where I held you
and let go, remember when fear
cramps your heart what I told you:
lie gently and wide to the light-year
stars, lie back, and the sea will hold you.
The New Moon in Leo is an expansive time. Here at Twinkle’s Place our home feels open in ways it has not in many many months. Perhaps because we have one less resident temporarily at this time and the energy is moving with more ease. Perhaps too because new and better things are on the horizon.
Mystic Mamma contributors tell us it is a time of sparkling creativity!
And to that we can certainly claim true, for this summer itself has been filled with such creativity and the closer we come to the new moon, the more powerful and vibrant the feeling is. Transitional times are upon us all.
Gather with us on August 14th to welcome the New Moon phases of creativity in its fullest manifestation. With the clear energy of our home, allow yourself to embrace your divinity and call in your deepest desires.
