A little bit dress up, a little bit of green magic…

Floooooow and the Everyday Goddess.


As Alice projectile vomited all over my leopard skin coat (rather fabulous) , I sat there desperately yearning for a bit of predictability, and some easy, calm flow.
And then I surrendered to the improbability of that right now.

Occasionally I observe others with a sense of ‘sometimes envy’ when I see the grace and ease with which they appear to travel through life. Of course appearances may be deceiving, and can mask a denial of sorts, but some people just flooooooow better than others.

I aspire to grace, and at times manage that and linger in those lovely moments. I walk tall and elongate my neck. At times I can be damn graceful myself, but sitting in a sick pool, with a lumpy headache looming it felt far, far away. I want to go there soon.

This morning while having a quiet five, I thought of the images of ease and flow that came to mind. I like to hold these positive images close to me while I am working through a process.

A stunning image of my younger sister Issy came to mind. She was heavily pregnant with her first baby, and photographed by a friend in a warmer part of the world than mine.

Issy is goddess personified. I think of her and think of Isis, Athena and other strong, warrior goddesses. Issy is beautiful, athletic, smart and sassy. She is also very no b.s. She is a terrific mother, with a no-nonsense attitude and a tendency to surrender to bed, to yoga or to getting help when I try too hard to soldier on. I can over analyze and be in my head too much. Issy just rings a friend or her mother in law and says can you ‘take the baby away’ NOW! It’s a nicely managed art-form, which is great for self-preservation. We can all use a bit of that.

This is not a self flagellation piece. I don’t want to be Issy. I like being me. I have different skills and abilities which I am proud of. However we can all benefit from taking a peek through someone else’s arched window for a few minutes and seeing what we can learn.

So today I honor Issy, Grace and Flow.

Off to make scones…

Green Blessings

I am inhabited by an eclectic disinhibited woman who dresses how she pleases. She doesn't always agree with the plant woman in me who likes to potter in the garden. They are both me and I am okay with that.
