The Muse had arrived at long last. She was present and persistent. So when I returned from Ireland in early October I settled into the energy of the cave to write my next book, A Call To Crone: Weaving Wisdom With Threads Of Irish Heritage. It was an inspired piece of time as I stepped away from all other writing. Including this blog. Which many of you have noted.
What I didn’t know is that I would also step away from writing my book and would stay in the cave energy to be with my Anam Cara, my soul sister, on her journey with cancer. A horrific journey through two surgeries and radiation treatments. Annalu made her transition last week with all the grace and peace and love that was her essence.
It’s tempting to stay in the cave. To hide. To grieve. To welcome a reweaving of our souls. But now with weeks until I am again in Ireland, it’s time to come out of the cave. I know so much healing will happen in Ireland…in the sacred landscapes we walked together. And much healing will happen in writing again on my book that Annalu was so part of and so excited about. Healing will happen in writing again on this blog. And I will write my way out of the cave, dancing with the sacred. Dancing with the spirit of my Anam Cara.
