Getting started isn't always easy. In fact, it never has been easy for me. I still remember - when in grade school I had trouble getting out of bed, getting dressed and getting to class - the time I walked to school in my pajamas. Or when I used to get new notebooks at the beginning of the year in high school, and get all organized, only to slowly become more discombobulated as I struggled to maintain order in a sensible way, to categorize and memorialize everything I was learning. By the time I graduated with a 'Master's Degree in Fine Arts' I was terrified of beginning to live my life. What had I been doing all those years?
Now I find myself here. Beginning again. Getting started was easy this time. I let it evolve organically. I learned to trust the flow and process and timing of allowing things to unfold and blossom in their own time as everything falls into place. New beginnings aren't always smooth sailing but sometimes, this time, there is joy and excitement in the birth.
May it be rooted in the earth and birthed through the womb.

I'm grateful to intelligent people. That doesn't mean educated. That doesn't mean intellectual. I mean really intelligent. What black old people used to call 'mother wit' means intelligence that you had in your mother's womb. That's what you rely on. You know what's right to do.
