Brand new baby, near death perspectives…

The new ‘Maleficent’ movie champions duality as I love it.  Fantasy and Reality.  Love and Hatred.  Man-made and Natural.  Bravery and Fear.  Life and Death.

Our new baby boy was born strong and spunky, then suddenly was on the brink, teetering and with much coaxing is now fully functioning and recovered.  In these moments, there is no hiding, no escape from reality – it is square in your view and I enjoyed taking the opportunity to feel the revitalization to my core.  It is a jolt to the system, a reset of sorts, that compliments our daily rhythm as a balancing point.

‘Tis the gift to be simple,
’tis the gift to be free
‘Tis the gift to come down
where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves
in the place just right,
‘Twill be in the valley of love and delight.

“Simple Gifts”: Shaker song believed written by Joseph Brackett
