Insatiable Curiosity

Sitting on grandma’s couch, I’m distracted from the Hallmark channel romance playing on the television. “I need to dedicate a few weeks to the Amor Fati course, at least, then I can start my Astrology course…” The thoughts are scattered as I check emails and direct messages I haven’t gotten to yet today.

I consider writing myself a schedule, but I don’t end up getting to it before remembering I need to write a blog post today. Feeling somewhat uninspired, or perhaps just still distracted, I open my Paperblanks app for some help. Of course, the prompt that then jumps up on my screen makes me laugh a bit, “I want to learn more about…”

Well then. I guess it’s a theme tonight – my curiosity will in fact get the best of me after all.

I want to learn, A LOT. I already know I’ll be learning my whole life, but I’m not waiting to get started!

I’m passionate about many things, and fascinated by even more. Along with philosophy and astrology, I also want to learn more about herbalism, shamanism, neuro linguistic programming, cognitive behavioral therapy, and various yoga practices. I’ve already started learning Reiki and am a level 2 practitioner, but I want to wait to finish my Master certification so I have time to develop my personal and professional energy healing practice first.

I also want to read, so much. Some of my current favorite authors are Pema Chodron, Alan Watts and Charles Eisenstein, but I have several books waiting to be read on my shelves by many others too.

Sometimes I feel the pressure of time, sometimes it feels like I will never have the chance to explore all the caverns my mind wants so desperately to venture down – but, I suppose that’s better than being bored and uninspired right? I’m certainly content to give it my best try!

goddess-sized bed

sprawled out –
have you forgotten
this isn’t your place
four of my six
pillows make your
halo of comfort
and I’m falling
off the side of
my own bed
I’m mad, man –
don’t need much
to set me on an it
been feeling your
encroachment
trying to ignore it
but this I can’t –
mine isn’t a bed
for a king, see
it’s goddess sized
and barely fits me –
my glory expands
so enjoy your sleep
beneath full moon
as tonight I creep
but on all the other
nights, don’t be
surprised by our rift
when my bed won’t
contort my will
to make you fit –
