It has been almost 20 years since the first time I read “The Journey.” I was in the process of getting a divorce and the poem made so much sense to me & still does. At that time I could not read it out loud without crying, I felt it so deeply. I have been teaching yoga & practicing healing for over 17 years. I read this poem to my students & clients over & over again. I am now able to read it out loud with my full voice & presence, no tears - only an occasional whisper of waters coming, & that too is good.
Thank you for grounding your poetry in the natural world.
