Flourishing in the right place

Accepting the gifts we have and that we are, isn’t passive.

As custodians of this little valley, with its more-than-human inhabitants, we pay active attention to the environment. This is wisdom at work.

And likewise, we need to pay attention to the place where we, and our creativity, flourish. Or, in the wise words of Rick Rubin:

Create an environment
where you’re free to express
what you’re afraid to express.

+ The Creative Act: A Way of Being, Canongate, 2023

Pause. See differently. Re-story 🌿

~ Thanks, Tash Acres, for the reminder and the living demonstration of this wisdom.
