Having completed the Female Blossoming Experience and Ripple Training I was aware of my clarity, feelings, and openness to what was around me. I smiled as two titles in the airport bookstore jumped out at me – We Are Called to Rise: A Novel and The Dolphin Parent. Whatever we think about is magnetized to us.
As our plane was cancelled and the hours went by, I noticed impatience and fogginess creeping in. More awareness of how lack of sleep and nurturing affect me.
On the last leg of the flight, I was seated next to a seven year old girl and her dad who were returning from a fishing trip in Idaho. He handed her an iPad. She watched part of a movie with dolphins swimming and then switched to a game which consisted of shooting zombies. Her dad would reach over and push buttons to show her how to kill more zombies quicker.
After she turned the computer off, I asked her about the game and what she most liked about it. She looked at me and said thoughtfully, “I’m not sure.”
It was such an honest answer. I felt sadness for the lives of children. We give them so much of little substance. I slipped into freeze and could not think of anything more to say.
After a good night’s rest, it occurred to me to ask the little girl inside me, “What do you most like to do? How do you want to play today?” And I heard a voice, “I’m not sure.”
