Zen Spot #125 — Mindfulness, meditation and the face of a rescued animal February 17, 2018 00:05

Mayze in complete black

We were told that she spent much of her first seven years in the dark, waiting to give birth, over and over again. Today, she thrives in sunlight. 

In the morning, the sun blasts through the window in my studio. Now part slug, she plops on the rug--somehow following the trail of the sun as it moves across the room, remaining directly in its blast radius for about three hours, without moving a muscle. An eleven pound glacier.

Seven years in the dark. Now loved.
