I woke this morning wondering what it would be like to be the wind and not the cave. I consider the shift. How light and curious might I be?
Then I read that a red Pegasus has been placed on a post near where I live. People are curious so on Next Door, a source of local news, I learn this:
The Pegasus is the signpost I use for the child therapy garden I created during Covid. It helps parents bringing their children for therapy to find the garden. I chose the Pegasus because it’s a symbol of the ability to use imagination and creativity to build resiliency and integrity, even (and especially) in life’s most challenging moments. I’m glad it brings joy to people driving by, and hopefully, is a whimsical reminder to keep your spirits up in the darkest of times.”
These may not be the darkest of times, but almost a year ago now we saw a dramatic change in how we navigate our lives.
I come to Alan Watts: The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it and join the dance.
