In the lime light of this leaf’s life, there existed a certain twirling device. One clever, clutching thing was able to spin it, not once but twice. So how do we take what comes to us unraveled and turn it tight – bring it into focus, channel the light? This skill requires being in the present, funneling our energy; for our lives move through not past us if we do it right.
I hope this tiny tidbit of a leaf print sits well with you tonight, between your dreamtime whirling and fancies from a flight. If so, pick it up and roll it, not once but twice around, until your pinkie points to that which has been found. And when it does, finds the focus, I hope you take some time to let it all go again … unwind.
