Happy Wednesday Reader!
I really struggled with knowing what to share this week.
I had written and re-written this email a couple times, and the teaching I had planned for this week just didn’t quite feel “right.” Intellectually, it was fine, but in my body there was a quality of “offness,” or unease. I experienced it as a numb but deeply obvious and visceral, "meh."
And so on Monday, which is when I usually finalize these emails, I hopped on Instagram and found myself staring at the poem below by my friend and Tacoma-based poet, James A. Pearson.
Unlike the teaching I had planned, these kind words from James reverberated within my story and within my current questions.
And and I knew it would be the teaching this week.

- How have your grand visions kept you immobilized, frozen from any movement at all?
