Yesterday I wrote about breath and Spirit. Today I finished reading Chocolat, which illustrates connections to wind, the change of seasons and how we as individuals and communities change. And there is plenty of cacao described in detail inviting me to imagine its alluring smell and tempting me to take a bite out of the book.
When Chocolat was finished, I moved on to the next book in line, The Alchemist, which our son gave to me for my birthday. I have only begun, but already it speaks of journey, change, personal calling and the language of the soul. My kind of book! The main character’s name is Santiago, reminiscent of a concert I attended a few weeks ago which painted a musical picture of the Pilgrimage to Santiago and our journey of personal transformation along the way.
As the March wind blows outside tonight I wonder where I will journey next.
The wind blows where it chooses, and you hear the sound of it, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit. -John 3:8
