chasing my shimmy

only to find that it was

with me all along




Finally, amidst the gloom and despair of the recent past, I am able to maneuver around the feelings of self-pity, and really emerge once again as a dancer.   The woman in the card represents segments of me, a ‘me’ that now is fading out of view. She will always be there though, and I celebrate her presence.

The dancers she holds within her are also part of me. Joyous and expressive, they mingle between the world of the living and the dead. What kind of angels are they?  Perhaps one is of shadow, and one is of light. The beauty of that is you cannot tell, they are equals. No one is better, they are mingling in that in between place. I love them for that. This image is from the Dark Angels deck.

    It’s one of my favorites in that deck! there is such a feeling of freedom, and acceptance.

    This post makes me so happy, Kelly. The card and the haiku are so beautiful, just like you are your dancing.
