i’ve long loved spirals. they represent to me an ongoing process of growth that returns, again and again to its origins. lately, i see myself spiraling. not in an out-of-control way (although sometimes it does feel like that!) but in the sense of circling back to a core place, with the same core questions and contemplations.
today, i stumbled on this blog post i wrote almost exactly five years ago, Notes from the Mainstream. then, i worked for higher education; now, i do not. my work is the same and it is different. i am the same and i am different. i bring new insight and learn from my old self. all at once.
the spiraling has brought nuance to my core question: how do i remain whole so that my actions are in service of the whole?
for now, wanting to just notice this spiraling. a calling back to my Self. with a deepening and widening perspective all the while.
