She was given to me back in 1995 by my Shiatsu mentor, Nini.
She presents the major meridians used in acupuncture, acupressure, & Shiatsu.
I’ve moved a lot in my adult life.
No doubt, less than some, & more than others.
The Passionflower bud was closed – & I thought that I had missed it blooming, as they only open for a day and a half… And never more than two days.
I enjoy it. For a number of reasons.
The quiet, the solitude, the animals…
It’s a bit disorienting, when returning home…
Maybe because another place has “become home”…?
I don’t really know.
Transition days are usually “raw days” where I always feel a bit off-kilter & vulnerable.
I was completely surprised when looking over at Penelope & the bud, about 20 minutes after watering the plants…
To see the bud had opened into its gorgeous blossom.
But it had happened before…
That is, a bud had formed… I’d gone off to house sit… Then returned home & I’d missed the blossom.
(Que disappointment violas…)
Yesterday, there was disappointment & swirl. There was surprise & delight. Then I got to watch the habitual mind patterns.
Getting to know “the field of weeds” so-to-speak.
Getting to know my very own mind-meadow.
