Some of my Biggest and Best Squam Lessons :
# 1 for me I think is that I can be the Big Heart Walking, Shiny One, that I am no matter where I go. You know the old saying "Don't let anyone hide your light under a bushel" ? I have been hiding my own light under this big ugly bushel for a long time, and now that I have learned how good it feels to shine it again, I won't let anything stop me.
Our room before Carolyn and I settled into it - cozy sanctuary,
but it would have been soooo much better with some heat !
My own art - face painted upside down, fearlessly, from Judy's Play Book class
There were some miracles at Squam, everyday miracles that sparkled so brightly and will be with me forever when I think of my experiences there. Judy Wise jokingly calls them "Pink Unicorn Moments" ! Love it ! Here are a few :
My Beautiful Room-Mate and new Dear Friend, Carolyn -
how wonderful it was to share our stories with one another so safely and
with such friendship love.
This is a photo of me wearing the necklace I bought from Georgia on Vendor Night, this gorgeous girl who was selling beautiful necklaces with the wings of butterflies pressed between glass and sealed in with solder (they come from a butterfly farm that collects the wings from dead butterflies). Among the butterfly wings was this peacock feather. I knew the necklace was for me. David once bought me a bouquet of peacock feathers in a long stem rose box when I had told him months before that I loved their colors so very much.
I got to share my story with Georgia - we had a "pink unicorn" moment of perfection.
The back of the necklace was perfect too...
for a Queen with big old wings !
