Kay’s Journal: A Year at Crown Hill: Bouyancy

Kay Adams at Crown Hill Lake & Wilderness Preserve

JV icon K Journal

Week 51. I had the pleasure of house guests over the holidays. One friend stayed for a few days over Christmas and the other a few days over New Year’s.  Each provided a great break from all the sorting and sifting of the December Project, and it forced me to clean up the rubble from the purge.

Although my friends and I each continue to be deeply disturbed by the unwinding spool of complexities in American and international leadership, we were able to hold “all that” and also experience an energetic and emotional lightness that brought laughter, joy, relaxation, play and the freedom to be fully open-hearted.

I carry this sense of lightness into 2017. The heaviness doesn’t leave. But it steps aside to make space for a bouyancy that will not be denied.


Even these storm clouds

know their brighter, bouyant side–

beauty in darkness

    Get ready for Stock Show Weather! We had over a foot of snow here and it is lovely as long as one doesn’t have to go out in it!

    Your photo really captures both the awesome and ominous nature of the coming weather.

      Ah yes, Stock Show weather! It’s beautiful today after two or three days of deep freeze. It’s actually still really cold (wind chill factor -35 in some parts) but the sky is gloriously blue and the snow is glittering like Kardashians.
