searing volcanic debris

    1. Yes, that's what I seem to be doing right now. Purging of feelings before a healing journey planned for next month. My spirit quest...

  5. Don't you wish that some of those searing memories would hurry up and cool down?

  8. Civilizations have been lost and new life has blossomed but there is never asking 'nature' why?

  9. When we rid ourselves of that debris, there's more room for peace and harmony...

  10. OMG somehow I missed responding to all these supportive and lovely comments! Thanks to all for seeing this as purging the past to do as Joanne said. I seem to be purging more in my writing the closer I get to a spiritual journey planned for next month. I think it's a good thing.
