..who will chop the wood that keeps you alive at night.
Barron will sometimes have sleepless nights (by choice). He’s most inspired at night when the rest of the world is asleep. He loves to learn. He’ll stay up late stoking the fire, listening to podcasts, reading and writing as I sleep. This photo is after a Barron all-nighter; the trash can full of orange peels, peanut butter sandwich supplies spread across the counter and the icy windows thawing in the sun.
Journal Entry January 18, 2019
“Meaningfulness is found by assessing what is truly important. What is meaningful for you? When you know the answers to this question, you’ll have created truth—truth according to you. Devotion of your life to your own truth heals the shadow that never believes that truth really exists.”
WHAT I FIND MEANINGFUL
Knowing love and beauty within myself
Time and the ability to know how to enjoy it
Feeling “enough” in every moment—happiness, contentment, wellness— and not seeking more
My health, guided by my personal body literacy
Loving relationships with my parents and siblings
Freedom in the act and discipline of self-reliance
Self expression through dance, music, art
The healing, untapped power of plant medicines
Clarity that comes from stillness and silence
Creation, using my hands to build useful, inspiring and beautiful things
The ability to know how to separate my true desires from the learned habit of making money
Making money does not belong here
Helping others to heal
Maintaining and working on “practice” in health, both physical and mental, art, relationships, communication and love
Letting go of that and of those who do not serve me
The healing powers of the sun, the air, earth, the moon and stars, water and color
Loving myself fully so that I may love others fully
The quality of my mind determines the quality of my life
