While we stop and rest up from the build-up, enjoyment, and let-down after such an amazing event, it is impossible not to think about CTCW next year.
The theme next year will be stillness, quiet, waiting, preserving. Starwolf suggested the beautiful image of Crystallization of Form, as when water cools and ice shows the form we do not see when it is moving.
I think about the pictures of Dr. Emoto’s water crystals exposed to different words, and how in stillness comes clarity.
The outside world has been heating up, and we could use some “holding space” to calm and keep what’s precious to us. Coming, as I am, straight from the conference, I am overflowing with how precious everyone there is to me, and how you all replenish my inner springs of hope as well as knowledge.
We will take a few breaths, then start looking for the site and date for next year, and we’ll let you know as soon as we can! Thank you all for your support.
