Last night’s workshop. I thought I knew exactly how it was going to go. I wasn’t far off but I surprised myself too.
Create a vision for 2020? Sure, I thought, piece of cake. My vision is being with Simon, loving Simon, committing to Simon – simple. Easy peasy.
And, as I answered the questions and delved deeper, I found there was more to it than that. And, I have to admit, I like this vision. It required dropping all my “buts” and “ifs” – no rational thought here. No mind power or overthinking. Just going straight to the heart. What the heart wants and sees.
So – in brief – Simon. Of course! But my vision involves more than sitting on the couch, cuddling, sipping champagne and eating chocolate (although the chocolate would be very good). My vision is all about a mutual dream. It incorporates a home that the two of us create. It’s about a fabulous garden that feeds us, a place where family and friends can come. It’s a place that speaks to our hearts. It’s a dream that is shared. It’s also about play, and fun as well as shared work. It’s about laughter. It’s about adventures and a certain amount of silliness. It’s about shared values and caring for each other – and for the land – the beautiful Mother.
It’s all of that.
So that was lovely.
Today: the first manifestation of the dream: two books in the mail on permaculture and food forests. Thanks to my love, I have some serious reading to do. And I can hardly wait!
