Thx to my friend Jeremy Nash for recently sending this Mark Nepo excerpt below. Mark Nepo is pretty goto for me. For the life that he has lived. For the words he has crafted. For the invitations to the deeply inner that he has simplified.
A Pearl of Wind, by Mark Nepo
Tell me a story, any story. Tell me
what happened or didn’t happen
or what you hope will happen. I need
signs of life to lift my head. I need some
pearl of wind to open my wing. So sing
me a song. For yourself, but let me listen.
I don’t care if you’re trained or shy or
can’t hum a tune. Just sing anything.
It will stir my heart. We can do this
for each other, can’t we?
