Being Breath

stories from the wilderness of everyday life

Coming Home

Yesterday I went to Chicago to attend the Buddhist Women's Conference.  This year's topic was "Expressing Dharma: Creativity in the Present Moment."

I've never been to one of these before.  I have never defined myself as "Buddhist".  I'm still struggling with a definition of myself as an "Artist" or as creative.

And yet, the thought that keeps gently rolling through my head, like a wave lapping on the beach, is

I'm home.

I will share photos and stories tomorrow morning - but today, I return to offline life and spend a few last precious moments with my sister before she heads into the hospital to grace this world with a new life...and me, with a new neice.

To all of you from all of me...

Namaste.
