Thoughtful Thursday

The daughter of a friend of ours has recently embarked on an extended tour of India.

The few times I've seen her over the years, I've always been left with the impression that there is a lot going on under the glamorous exterior; this is one savvy chicky. I cannot say that I know her well, but I'm finding her personal blog to be quite a gem to read; it is revelatory and brings new insight not only into her unique, open-eyed world view but also to the spiritual being she is.
(It's kind of like reading a real-life version of "Eat, Pray, Love")

One of the few things about her I do know is that she's a successful dancer, and the quote she left at the bottom of her departure e-mail speaks volumes about her wanderlust and her sheer delight at the anticipation of travelling:

"....and that the patterns you weave upon the night
have such swift passion, such essential heat,
that all the painter sees, the painter can write,
are but pale shadows of your dancing feet..."
Humbert Wolfe

May all of our daily explorations be as passionate and as intentional.
