gutwrenching grief & wild joy : : solstice blessings


We hold vigil.

The darkest night will end.

We remember Light will find us again, no matter how heavy our hearts or how bright our spirit: the truth of this expands to hold both gently, with Mother-love. There is room for our gutwrenching grief AND our wild joy.

The darkest night will end.

The Light will find us again.

Shhhh. Peeking into solstice-celebration and Ceremony, in honor of our first issue as The Phoenix Soul next month.

Shhhh. Peeking into solstice-celebration and Ceremony,
in honor of our first issue as The Phoenix Soul next month.

We believe
even when we don't

we believe
because we must

we believe
because we choose

we believe
because the Light,
she has always found us

before . . .

and she will
again.

We breathe in relief,
the sunkissed reassurance,
the glow of healing-will-come.

We lean into Love, Love, Love,
in whatever form she takes:
from unexpected laughter
to the candle-spark
to the crooked smile of our beloved
to the dreams where we meet our lost ones again
(if only for a day)


to the death of all that came before
to the birth of all that will be,
all that is,
that is,
that is.


with deep love
and LIGHT
for you + me + we,
Amanda
(your fellow phoenix soul)
