snippets in process

I have never been more aware of my body
Of how I feel in it and who I am in it
And how it makes me what I am
And is so lovely and so capable even in its imperfection
I am more connected to it than ever before
For the good and the bad and the salty
And the sweet
And those times I want to cry but cant
And think of those whose bodies betrayed them
And how we can bathe one another in love
And intention and healing and light
And maybe things will turn out the way we thought they would
And maybe they will turn out so much better than that
But maybe a friend will still die, even though his wife is bringing his son into the world
Maybe she will still leave
And things will break and crack and decay
But from that detritus will rise something else
And we will love each other for as long as humanly [possible
And the earth will love us for long after that.
