Though your destination is not yet clear
You can trust the promise of this opening;
Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning
That is at one with your life’s desire.
Awaken your spirit to adventure;
Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk;
Soon you will be home in a new rhythm,
For your soul senses the world that awaits you.
~ John O’Donohue, excerpt “For a New Beginning”
Last weekend was the closing event at the Threads of Awakening studio. Leslie Rinchen-Wongmo is moving her studio home, consolidating and lightening up as she shifts focus. In addition to ongoing teaching, Leslie is writing a book about her journey with Tibetan applique. So the day on Sunday held mixed blessings. Having attended the studio opening several years back, this was closing of one circle. It was lovely to be there to offer flag making and to meet guests and friends.
Those who did participate in making flags enjoyed the relaxing process. It was a joy to be in their company. Though I did not take photos of their projects, all seemed pleased with the results. A reminder that creative process is fun.
I look forward to seeing where the journey takes Leslie, and indeed all of us, now!
