Dear Mother Earth...
As a young adult I walked out on you altogether, just walked out the door and didn't thank you for all your generous, peaceful solitude. I couldn't see your inspiring beauty all around me. I suppose it was my path to leave you and go find my place in the world... my career, my identity, and lifestyle.
Thank you for sustaining my soul.
Thank you for your energy.
Thank you for grounding me.
Thank you for detoxing my body and mind.
Thank you for connection.
I feel sure that I won't stray from you again. For now I know the secret of you.
Now, I must breathe your fresh air everyday, feel your breeze on my face, and know your stillness to hear my own voice.
For the rest of my days, I will delight in your curiosities and calm myself through your nurturing soul.
It comforts me to know that someday, when I am finished here, you will pull me tightly back into your arms and keep me, until you create me again.
