It’s almost a week since the last Northern Rocks conference and I’ve been musing about the effect the day had on me ever since . When I left my Headship I felt like the heart of me had died a little, at times, a lot- there were moments I wondered whether it was even possible… Continue reading Boundless Rocks
The clear bead at the center changes everything. There are no edges to my loving now. I’ve heard it said there’s a window that opens from one mind to another, but if there’s no wall, there’s no need for fitting the window, or the latch.
