(Un) Trust

June 21, 2011 § 3 Comments

Today, I am thrilled to accept an invitation from Lindsey to hang out on her blog, A Design So Vast for the day. (Hopefully, we are drinking some coffee right now and talking about what a great run we just had along the Charles.)

Lindsey was my second ever reader and what it thrill it was to trace her comment back to her own blog. She writes honestly and luminously about her life as a writer, about her two beautiful children, and mostly about what it means to live wide-eyed and wide awake. When she asked me to write about trust, I jumped at the chance to be a part of her blog, but was hoping she would pick something else for me to write about. Then my car was broken into, and it just seemed like the right time to write about how I try – and fail – to navigate through the world while keeping the blinds of my heart open at least a crack.

I am so excited to over there for the day. And you should be too! While you are there, look around and then subscribe. Lindsey writes daily, and reading her post each morning has become a ritual that opens my eyes – and my heart – up to the goodness in my own life. I have no doubt it will bring you a daily bunch of joy as well.

    Wow – what a generous introduction. I can’t tell you how mutual these feelings are, or how important your blog has become, very quickly, in my life. How important YOU have become. Thank you, thank you. xox

    So beautiful to bear witness to the divinely feminine unfolding of true, trusting friendship between two contemplative, heart-centered women. Thank you both.

  • Hi Pam, I read you over at Lindsey’s but wanted as well to say here how lovely a post it is. Also, as for trust, I really think we need to look back to the overall question of basic trust, set up in first year and a half… most of us didn’t manage to come into this terrifying (or at least potentially terrifying) world with basic trust, but we can become what the attachment folks call “earned secure,” which means we know our wounds, we know them to be the past, we are ready to live in the present…. being connected, as we craft in this blog corner of the world as it is, seems central to our collective healing. Namaste
