Grace under Pressure........or Not

Back from the Pacific Northwest and square into the middle of the race. My trip was an opportunity of growth - to be the adult. It also knocked my serenity for a loop upon my return.
  • My spiritual serenity
  • My sexual serenity
  • My professional serenity
Thankfully my Babushka came to see me today before her trip out of town. Intimacy is as much about the uncomfortable conversations as it is about the comfortable ones. Not just providing a safe place for someone but feeling safe yourself. Not only listening with empathy and without judgement to another's fears and concerns but having enough trust and faith in them to share your own fears and concerns.

I thank my lovely Jewel for the gift of intimacy.
