In today’s Reverb14 prompt Kat McNally invites us to consider…
In the busyness of the everyday, taking time to nourish the soul doesn’t reach the top of the ‘to do’ list as often as it should.
What nourishes your soul? How would you like to incorporate more of this into your life in 2015?
I actually think I’m pretty good at nourishing my soul. It may well be one of my superpowers. In fact as I was thinking about this prompt it occurred to me that perhaps I should claim the title of soul nurturer.
What I think I’d like to put some focus on in 2015 is doing a better job of nourishing and nurturing my physical body. I’m going to be holding this gently and forego a list of shoulds and to-dos, resolutions and promises, or anything that frames this in a way that is less than lavishly loving.
Today I had a conversation with the beautiful Amy Palko, a poet herself amongst all her other gifts, and she introduced me to a poem by Derek Walcott – Love after Love. I know I’ll be taking this wonderful with me as a touchstone into 2015.
You can listen here to Tom Hiddleston reading it.
Lovely isn’t it? And what a powerful injunction “Feast upon your life.”
That’s certainly an energy I want to carry forward.
And what about you? What nourishing do you need – for your soul or your body? Do tell – you know I love to hear.
