Yesterday, I wandered up the valley to check the water-gate after more rain had fallen. This is Wales after all.
The breadth of the brook and the remnants of the original reservoir means that multiple small channels need to be kept open. And periodic clearing of debris is required.
Dislodging stones, silt and vegetation, and watching them disperse downstream reminded me of how flow is crucial to all of us.
If our blood doesn’t circulate right around our body, even to our skin through the tiny little capillaries, parts of us will decay and ultimately die.
So where and how do we need to unblock channels in our life and creativity to allow the flow to happen?
Yes, it is a messy process. But it’s worth it.
