Earlier in the day I had attended a session through school district work for Aboriginal Education Leadership. We were offered supplies to make a talking stick while the presenters spoke. I noticed people looking in the basket to predetermine their words for their talking stick. I looked away instead to let the word find me. My word tile had two sides - One side said "will" and the other side said "time," both true to my experience so far. Earlier this year when I made my first Mandala at a yoga centre workshop that experience also offered opportunity to choose a word. The word that day was "success." I don't use signs to guide my life, instead every word that has come to me this year I have chosen to resonate purposefully with where I am at and with what I am doing. Things seem to happen for reasons we do not understand - Our job it seems is to accept and work through them.
