First, I just want to thank every person who has sent messages of love and support as I grieve the loss of my Lilly. Truly, I feel so loved and supported, and your kind words, phone calls, and shared memories have been heartwarming in this time of grief.
Lilly’s passing has occurred on the busiest weekend of my year - my choirs’ annual dress rehearsal and Spring Song concert, two 13 Moons Circles, and replacing the hide on the Grandmother Drum for Moon Dance. I am powering through, with tears freely flowing through it all. I am grateful the women of 13 Moons, to my friends Michelle and Crystal for taking care of HueHuetl, and to all of my students who showed me so much love and care yesterday - even crafting this little card during rehearsal, reminding me to just flow.... I got home after 9pm last night, and kindled what I imagine will be my last fire here in this home. I laid out my altar, and made ceremony for Lilly, praying to the guardians of all directions, and those whom I have loved and have passed to Spirit, to welcome her on her journey forward. May all the love she inspired in this earthwalk be carried with her into eternity.
This is the beginning of many endings in the month to come. I feel that butterfly medicine, as I decompose into primordial ooze, readying myself for new shape, new wings, enhancing my vibrancy in the world, living my new purpose. All of it is perfect, for in letting go I open myself to new wonders, new joys, new loves. I wholeheartedly have faith in the good things coming.
Thank you all again for your love and support. I feel tremendously blessed, guided, and protected on so many levels. 🏻 #gratitude #love #grief #transformation - 30 minutes ago
