Sometimes Happily Ever After is Complicated


The last and first time I ever saw my grandfather laugh was a couple of months before his funeral. He was sick, he’d been sick for a long time, but that day, a bit ways from the mountain, the sun just the least bit of warm, he came out for some sunshine, farted, and laughed.

Les 4 baumes de guérison universels

Ma vie au présent simple

“Dans de nombreuses sociétés chamaniques, si vous allez voir un chaman, ou une femme médecine, pour vous plaindre d’être découragés, démoralisés ou déprimés, il vous fera l’une de ces quatre questions :
1. Quand avez-vous arrêter de danser ?
2. Quand avez-vous arrêter de chanter ?
3. Quand avez-vous cesser d’être enchanté par les histoires ?
4. Quand avez-vous cessé de trouver réconfort dans le doux territoire du silence ?
