Advent 2010, Day 5: Letting go

December view for today: the arch at my in laws garden. Perfect for dreaming of sacred doors to other spaces. Today it had a few light blue flowers and my mother in law had just hanged an "aljaba" plant from the top.A close up of the new plant.

Prompt from Reverb 10:

December 5 – Let Go. What (or whom) did you let go of this year? Why? (Author: Alice Bradley)

I guess the most honest answer is: nothing.

We let go a lot of material stuff this year. As we have replaced most of it, I feel it doesn´t really count. Yes, it was slow and almost painful to let go lots of old travel papers, pieces of evidence of good moments but in the great scheme of things, it was not that big. Old books, old clothes. Gone and forgotten.

I could let go of enviromental drama (the type that other people want to share with you, when they try to get you to experience the high strung reactions to situations in their own lives) for short periods of time. Longer than before, still a lot to learn.

What a wonderful arch - it really does look as if it could lead to a secret garden or another world.
