Following Your Golden Compass...
There is within you a wild landscape that waits to be discovered, to be seen, to be reclaimed. Trust me. You have not forgotten how. Throw away your maps.
~ From ‘She Who Is’
You have traveled too fast over false ground;
Now your soul has come to take you back.
Take refuge in your senses, open up
To all the small miracles you rushed through.
Become inclined to watch the way of rain
When it falls slow and free.
Imitate the habit of twilight,
Taking time to open the well of color
That fostered the brightness of day.
Draw alongside the silence of stone
Until its calmness can claim you.
― John O'Donohue, excerpted from "A Blessing for One Who is Exhausted", from To Bless the Space Between Us: A Book of Blessings.

The space between us
With everything we say
And everything we do
Brighter than the constellations
The Light Within us grew
In the Infiniti of the cosmos
That were floating through
There's one thing I will promise
If you're scared to try something new
Just stare into my eyes
To find a different View
If you orbit me
Then I will orbit you

Back to work irl today 🙃 I don't even have a consistent space to set up because we're sharing a campus with another school (HVAC fire on our campus and we're not allowed back in yet) and I've been assigned to share a room with a counselor, meaning one of us has to leave if there's an appointment because of confidentiality and it's going to most likely be me (even tho she's willing to work outside and be as flexible as I am)
My anxiety is having a field day with this. Not only am I breaking routine and driving somewhere new (ish), I'm not even guaranteed a dedicated space to work! Also, because it's two schools combined into one rn it's going to be loud and I'm probably going to get distracted! But guess what I have at home?! A dedicated work space!!! And quiet!!!! Also a private bathroom!!!!!! AND I'M NOT PACKED IN WITH STRANGERS LIKE A SARDINE AT THE TAIL END OF A PANORAMA
I'm not the only one who feels this way, but admin is set on the decision so here we are
