Impetus

"Our work is less about changing people than about designing environments that rouse the healing and creative impulses latent in each of us and in the group." ~Alan Briskin

Hello again world. 

I've been thinking about writing here for quite some time. There's been lots of different nudges - circumstances that have me thinking about sharing and composing bits of blog posts in my head. Today I'm here.

The mother of a friend who comes to my classes has passed and today is her funeral. It's being held in the same place that we held my mom's. The cute guy and I will be attending because it's support yes? Holding space for others. Keeping everything from boiling up and over just by being there. 

I've been thinking a lot about how lucky I've been in terms of family and relationships and circumstances. I didn't realise I was thinking it was lucky till I just wrote that. 

I've been thinking a lot about the situations I've been through, lessons learned and support that I have. I'm trying to figure out how to share it all with the world.

This morning I reread the posts I wrote during the month of my mom's passing and I'm strongly reminded that I'd like to write a book about her. I have to start it soon. It's been on my mind the past few weeks with certain family situations that have been popping up. 

I feel like writing. Maybe I start here.

peace,
Ren
