We don’t have big party plans (haven’t done that in ages) but we always do a movie (tonight it will be the new Star Wars flick, I may cry I’m such a nerd) and escape for a bit, eat something good, and drink of course! Tonight is no different. Felt my surge of inspiring thought during a tough, yet groovy yoga class this morning (fell apart emotionally during it, which I believe was a good thing) which enlightened my spirit and has left me…hopeful.
May the new year bring you more joy, creativity and inspiration than you thought possible.
My wish for all my dear Wit followers…
A few Wit-ful inspirations for today…
Happy New Year!
Time to embrace your darker side… Due to September’s timely demise I have now awoken and feel inspired during this October, my favorite month of the year. Join me for pre-Samhain bits on the creepier wit and beauty side, full of Art, poetry, words and images to make the tummy twinge and the nickers moist, in more ways than one, along with the eternal desires October brings every year. May this be a magical, mysterious month for all the Wit children….

A high moment listening to Ima Sumac. The voice has all the richness, beauty, and range of a mythical woman. It does not seem humanly credible. She sings like a siren, a bird, an angel, some seductive chant never heard before, high and low, fragile and strong. With all that, she has the exotic beauty of a legendary figure. I could imagine her in Peru, but not accept that she is married to a composer and now sings his Hollywood-type arrangements in a night club.

The next time you talk with somebody, try to listen with every part of your body, not just your intellect. Let you breath be slow and full as you take in whatever that person has to say, however she needs to say it. Try not to compete, to prove wrong, to dominate, or to redirect. Savor the person’s unique pitch and rhythm. Listen for what’s being revealed and for what’s being veiled.
