    Such amplified loveliness. That last paragraph is one I’m going to be thinking about for a while. It will be softly illuminating places in my mind, and what a joy that is.

    Beautiful. I, also, have had a week that feels like 100 pounds on my back. And how I love this “when our hearts are searching for guidance, therapies reveal themselves everywhere, from the McDonald’s drive-thru to a spiritual counselor on a website to a conference room at a community college.” tying in with the visual of torches when we have the light of fireflies. The light is there, always there, and when we see it, what a leap into another realm it is.

    Beautiful, Jocelyn. Thank you.

    I like to bring my lunch to work but always eat late (around 1:45) and head to the staff lounge on my floor where NO ONE ever is. Except today there was a secretary who held court on the phone with her boyfriend during my entire lunch. I sat, eating my egg salad sandwich while she blew noisy wet kisses in the phone and kept asking the fellow if he was still her “wizard butt man.” Just…ugh. So, I finally picked up my phone and pretended to call security. “UM…yeah. I’d like to report someone performing phone sex and sitting right next to me. I fear that I may vomit at any moment…” She glared at me and stalked out. I smiled. I’m a bad ass. Oh, yeah. A wizard butt bad ass…..

  6. I felt I sat at the table with all of you. And danced with the fireflies as well. Lovely.

  7. I lvoed this post. I really did. Avia’s story is almost every other immigrant’s story. I’m talking abotu the ones who don’t end up with people of their own “culture”. She has a point and she is right about making that point as politely as possible. But she is still an immigrant and as a fellow immigrant I can sympathise with her. Your group sounds wonderful. It really does. Thanks.

  8. “loved” and “about” even. 🙂

    Am sighing that deep, satisfied sigh that follows a wonderful, insightful, provocative, validating read.
    Thank you.

    Oh, how this group touches my heart. You are a wonderful instructor to allow this flow and a learning atmosphere within a group of students who otherwise have little commonality. Your writing of it brought me into the room. Thanks for sharing them.

    When I grow up I am going to move to Duluth and take your class(es). And sit in on your Friday afternoons. Such a lovely post.

    My own therapy that rose up when I needed it happened one March morning a couple-four years ago. It was the really hectic time of tax busy season. I was tired when I got up and cranky about having to go to work. When I got in the car to drive to work, Minneapolis then-mayor R.T. Rybak happened to be on The Current, the sort-of-pop public radio station, with the regular morning DJ. They were discussing music and chatting, and the two of them were so upbeat and entertaining and genuine that halfway to downtown I realized that I was now in a good mood. Thank you, R.T!

  12. You know I flee from therapy-like situations outside of my circle of friends. But that’s just because of my job. The firefly images, though – love that.

    Reading this has provided therapy too; did you realise you can do this?
