seems i have new friend in needles these days. doing all the shots for the last year and last week added some acupuncture into the mix. this wonderful soul, susan, is my 5 element TCM acupuncturist and in support of my upcoming ivf she needled my ankles, shins and belly. she has needled my eyes before, which provoked tears that i didn’t know were in there, and she filled my bellybutton with salt and burned moxie in it. it made the whole room smell like pot. she makes me laugh. i have read some positive things online about IVF and acupuncture and she has recently supported 7 people on their way to pregnancy. so, i’m hopeful.
i am feeling pretty good. i am feeling the vastness of the world. i am humbled by the devastation in haiti. i feel that i’m getting closer to my guts. i have had some interesting conversations with brian lately about the impermanence of our existence and rather than feeling upset and afraid, i am feeling that as long as i keep peeling back the layers and examining it all.. then i am closer to finding that peace that allows us to let go.
