Wind In The Willow

Come, said the Willow. So I came.
Dear One, said the Willow, give me your sorrow and stresses. So I told the Willow my concerns.

There is no sorrow God and nature cannot heal, said the Willow. Do not hold onto grief. Release it into my bark and let it flow through my roots to the Mother. So I pressed my cheek to the creviced trunk. I felt the grief flow outward.

You are safe, said the Willow, and your heart is strong. So I kissed the Willow and shared my heart and bowed my head in gratitude.
Dear One, said the Willow, this is my message for you: Live well. Love fully. Hold nothing back. Embrace the winds of change. And dance.
So I draped myself with fingertip-leaves and danced with the wind in the Willow.


  1. There is indeed much healing that can be found in God and nature as long as we allow it to happen. It can be such a release to just let go of it. Yes you have to accept it, embrace it, and experience it first, but it is also important to be able to let it go too. I'm glad you are on your way. Time helps lessen the pain as well. I have been in a similar place to where you are, and I know how much it hurts. Things will get better though. Hugs to you.

  2. Such a lovely picture essay. I love that peaceful image of you, Graciel.
