“Rainy Days & Sundays…”

Nothing like a rainy day to turn one’s attention inward…

I was sitting here at my window altar

Exploring

Heart

   Soul…

and

Consciousness

When I uncovered tiny pockets of

Anger

Sadness

and

Rage

   That remained

Hidden

Within the dark recesses of my being…

   Buried…

   Stinking…

SHIT

Some of it dating back to childhood

   (And we all know how long ago that was!)…

Oh, how well I know

and remember

How

Unexpressed

Anger

Sadness

and

Rage

   Can…

   Will…

Eventually manifest in the

Flesh

as

   Disease…

And so…

On this rainy day

I got busy with the necessary

   Inner Work

Scrubbing

Cleansing

Mopping up

Vacuuming

Clearing

and

Cleaning out

The tons of stinking…festering…rotting

   SHIT…

I unloaded every speck that I could find of that

Inner Garbage

So that I may walk

Free

Clear

Light

   Unburdened

By yesterday’s pain

   Into tomorrow’s sunshine

Breast Cancer As Metaphor

I posted some of my “WiseWoman Wisdom” and realizations concerning the breast cancer “event” I experienced more than seven years ago. If you’re interested in learning what my “take” is on this whole matter of dis-ease, do read my blog: Breast Cancer and Repressed Mother Rage. You’ll find it at:

I’d be interested in your comments and feedback. I am curious to know if there are others who also see disease as metaphor or messenger.

Thanks for the input!
