Thoughts on innocence…

  
One of the cruelest ways we deprive ourselves is when we ruthlessly extract the extraordinary from the world spinning around us to replace it with expectations of the predictable, the common, the cynically hopeless, the “ordinary.” How tragic the way we digest and distribute these blind, self-deceptive lies, with the cool aplomb of cult followers dispersing religious tracts at a crowded airport. To Maintain, with reverence and joy, that childlike wonder, that enchantment with everyday things, everyday experiences, the “ordinary”–that is the most precious gift offered by the Goddess, and one, as we “mature,” appear most reluctant to receive. I suggest we accept this gift, embrace it and hold it dear.
