"Storytellers restore order with imagination, and instill hope again, and again, and again!" (Walt Disney)
I've continued to think about everyone in Florida, those in Texas beginning to rebuild, and honestly the information changes so much it can shift direction/size, and I just put prayer and deep compassion for all of Florida and those effected due to travel, or have family there etc. But I was waiting to check out and a lady asked me what I thought of this weather - and I said, it's unusual, but most things are these days. And the clerk said "yeh - well at least the Hurricane wasn't as bad as they thought it would be." And I said - well that's easy for us to say - but we're not there living with it either. It is a reminder for me - that storms mirror our human experience (life) as well. But that metaphor (Life/storm) brings chaos into life - and when it's not ours to work through, it can be quick to dismiss it as "negative" "positive" "inspiration" "drama" -and the truth is, we're not living with it either. But I can hold my own heart with compassion for walking through its own storms, that I never saw coming then I'm wholeheartedly compassionate everyone in personal and coastal storms.
I videoed a #BTS clip at rehearsal today, and hope that it is received however it is needed - may it be an answered prayer - may it symbolize cleansing / rebuild or rebirth, but we are holding you all with love & peace in this moment // let us hold each other.
