I can usually feel a big life change welling up and I get antsy. I begin to anticipate it , in joy and fear, like the first day of kindergarten. I hear it rumbling like thunder in the distance. And I start running away trying to escape the natural flow of life through me, as me. Everything is going to change and change is constant. I am either growing and thriving or I’m stuck and dying. Black and white. There’s no in-between here.
The days rolled into weeks; he weeks into months and the months into years. Life whispered: “No. You’re not going to Perú.”
Four years later, I met Michelle Eriksen. I kept my distance. What can I say? I am a wild living being, an untamed spirit on fire. Like the little prince’s fox, I must first be tamed. I heard Michelle had returned from an Ayahuasca trip in the forest, my heart skipped a beat and I made a date to meet her. And that has made all the difference.
