A few days away from home with soul sisters both familiar and new has been balm for my soul. The next few high energy days will have a lot to teach me. Like tonight...when sitting at the tooth-rattling loud music (concert style) of a talented duo, I learned that it is only uncomfortable if you try to resist the volume. Instead, I took it in, I let it rattle my bones and guide my heartbeat. It felt a bit like gingerly bumping into the flow of an asteroid belt...or so I imagined. Not so bad, really, to settle in to it and just ride.
