Today I swung by PVCC on my way from receiving a birth processing session with Janet Evergreen. It was a powerful session in which I explored and renegotiated my taking incarnation. Specifically, I explored what it would be like to have a “perfect” utero situation with 100% of my needs and required resources met. Very potent! I spent time growing my body, having taken incarnation in that well boundaried space. Aahhhhh…
Having done that, that is taking those baby steps, pun intended, I proceeded to check off another box on my list of things to do to transition to graduate school in California. I stopped by my old school, Piedmont Va Coomunity College, where I spent six years slowly grinding through resistance and eventually graduating. I spoke with someone who taught me French in middle school, twenty two years ago, which I thought was fitting. How best to bid Charlottesville farewell than to start from the beginning.
While I was at PVCC, I spent many hours helping to build and weed and water a Garden. It is called Plum’s Garden. The view of Carter’s Mountain from Plum’s Garden is majestic. There was a lot of history between me and the other gardeners from 2002, and I wanted to resolve it. I saw a crow nearby, which to me represents a creature of change and transformation, and I invited the crows to join me in the garden.
I walked through familiar beds, saw the stone wall I had helped lay and then saw the perfect rock to perch on. I had a splendid view of Carter’s Mountain, which is where Monticello is located, and I just soaked in the raw grace and beauty. And sure enough, a crow flew low in front of me and then perched above me. Then another landed in a nearby tree, and they started cawing. I took that as a definite sign that I am on the right path.
So I am slowly moving from incarnating, to growing a new body and soon I may crawl my way to grad school in Ca. I hope you will stay in touch on my journey!
