I heard a shaman say once, the Ancestors want our souls to be like the blue sky.”

Charlotte Eriksson
“I woke up early and took the first train to take me away from the city. The noise and all its people. I was alone on the train and had no idea where I was going, and that’s why I went there. Two hours later we arrived in a small town, one of those towns with one single coffee shop and where everyone knows each other’s name. I walked for a while until I found the water, the most peaceful place I know. There I sat and stayed the whole day, with nothing and everything on my mind, cleaning my head. Silence, I learned, is some times the most beautiful sound.”
Charlotte Eriksson

Not a dawn groggy with lack of sleep or hectic with mindless obligations and you about to rush off on an early adventure or business, but full of deep silence and absolute clarity of perception?

with the energy
of the mornings

of the evenings
in your arms
kiss it deeply

make love
to the tranquility
of the nights.”

“Outside, there was that predawn kind of clarity, where the momentum of living has not quite captured the day.
