What do want to wake up to in your life that you are hiding from right now? Please naswer me I’m not just saying this to hear my self write I want to know what you need a good dose of courage for in this moment.
I want to tell you that I visited both The Czech Republic and Poland without having tickets till the day I left for London for the Czech Republic and tickets for Poland I only got while in Prague. I had to trust it would all work out. Kinda crazy said my rational mind you don’t know where you are going, or whom is picking me up or where I’m teaching but I trust it will all work out.(Funny thing is they had my DVD’s so they knew what I looked like and to them I was a celebrity someone they never though they would get to meet that was very funny) Would I have liked it all to be set much earlier? Yes but it all worked out so beautifully that my faith in knowing that the unknown is truly know to me was restored in all it’s vastness.
Irena who was my ambassador in Prague and my translator for classes couldn’t have been more gracious, lovely and thoughtful . I had a delightful time. I even got a necklace made for my daughter. I followed my intuition that she needed a garnet necklace. Irena took me to this woman who made her the perfect necklace on the spot but not fast enough for while she was making the necklace for Pritham I found something that belonged to me. Gorgeous and I did need something from my new found home land. You will get to see it and you will know why it was mine. I really had fun playing with the Czech People the classes were joyous. Even though they were under the soviet rule you could feel that being under the rule of a poet had created some healing. Can’t wait to go back.
Warsaw. Wahe Guru these people are strong. Most of the people who attended were from other cities in Poland not from Warsaw. Warsaw doesn’t have the most easy past they have been both oppressed and oppressor. Burned to the ground by Hitler, they hosted interment camps and much more. The sky was overcast it was cold, the architecture was soviet heir at it worst and the people at the courses so greatful. We played. They needed to play. to do the divine dance of the soul. Anna gave me an apartment to my self which was really wonderful. The grief of the city and the pain of the people made me cry and then let it go and realize they needed my joy not my sympathy. For two days we were playful and deep and I loved their longing to excel. They want the rights to my book to translate it into Polish.
On to London then Toronto. My greeting in Toronto was the biggest snow storm of the winter. Yes March 23 and lots and lots of snow. It was lovely since I don’t have to live there. I could enjoy it. I could also enjoy the delight of the two children in the house I stay. Sophia the artist girl who keeps up a running dialogu of whatever crosses her brain waves. Ryder the worker boy. Who hauls and fixes things. At two he is happiest shoveling snow with his artist father or climbing ladders with his tools box to “fix it” . He says , “Me work” and means it. Sophia and I got to sleigh ride and sit silently with a tree. Her mother marveled that she was silent for 10 minutes. She drew numerous pictures of me some quite enchanting. She is a really great artist. I loved staying with the whole family. My dear friend Maaika was with me for a day then off to do her own workshop. I got to teach allot. Canadian’s want you to believe they are really serious. They don’t have the quirky sense of humor like the English but they do have the stiff upper lip. They love having it pulled into a smile. I just tell them right off I’m going to get them to be outrageous. They act like they are resisting but they believe American’s are outrageous anyway so you can make it contagious. I love playing with them because they so appreciate being broken open it is like a pomegranate. Seeds exploding everywhere. You can just see the creativity erupt. I got to teach allot in Toronto.My Blessing
