Thank you for the opportunity to take the class last night. The energy in the room was wonderful. People were very kind and generous of heart. I find it fascinating that the simple act of tying a knot stopped my monkey mind in its tracks and forced me to mentally go to a different place. It was both humbling and illuminating. While describing the evening to my dear friend I found myself tearing up. We spend so much time trying to fit ourselves into the molds others create in order to ensure survival (ie, a job and a paycheck) that the act itself seems to be sapping the very life force out of us. Surely there must be some way to strike a balance. Be proud, Mary Ellen- I received all of that wisdom by participating in your bead class!
