Easter has had a big impact on Mavis this year, as she lives in solitude and thinks about the BIG questions. Along with that she seems to be in a blue moon phase and a bit hippy-dippy at the moment.

Mavis has been reading the Abbess again and she quotes..." May the waxing of the moon call you to your own fullness. May you clear out all that no longer serves you, shaking loose old expectations and plans, and embrace what is new and emerging just this moment." ~ Christine Valters Paintner, Abbess

Her love of haiku continues....April's air stirs in willow-leaves...a butterfly floats and balances ~ Matsuo Basho
