A Year of Listening: Week 14

We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is awaiting us….The old skin has to be shed before the new one is to come. — Joseph Campbell

I collected this quotation many years ago.  Spring cleaning away yard debris and winter’s film on windows has started here in the Shenandoah Valley. While I work in the fresh air of April, my mind is fleshing out plans.

Am I ready once again to get rid of plans?  There is something good beckoning to me.  I am listening. Picture 070How do I shed old skin?  A snake uses friction.  I want to see the usefulness of friction in my relationships.  Can I be kind while I use friction?  Are you?
