January 7th, 2011:
In seven days I will turn 36. I keep saying that recently… mentioning it to almost everyone i speak to; as if i’m trying to remind my Self that it is true…testing their reaction, as if trying to decide whether 36 is old or not.
I don’t feel old. I feel brand new. There is an enchanting feeling of newness…rebirth… beginnings…i have been in a cocoon…hiding, hurting, healing and always growing…but not yet ready to step out.
Now i am poking my toe out, smoothly followed by my calves and firmly by my thighs. I am ready to step out.
I am ready to stretch and show the boundlessness of my imagination. I am ready to sleep more…dance more…sing more…love again…to work harder and with more discipline at everything.
I am ready to slide into the softness of my womanhood…to caress the inner folds of mySelf…
To probe the strength that lies therein.
