    "The Call" Women's Writing Circle  

        Sundays March 29 and April 5  

8:00-9:00 amPT

The Call
Week after week
For nine months
We heeded The Call.
We showed up.
We listened.
We spoke.
We wrote.
We read.
We shared.
We inspired each other.
We shared leading.
We shared following.
We shared listening and speaking, reading and writing.
We laughed and cried.
We celebrated and grieved.
Sometimes we got confused, or maybe we confused each other?
Or maybe we were playing or sometimes we were trying “too hard”.
Sometimes the jackal voices were howling panicked.
Sometimes we heard the sweet simple sound of giraffes being together.
We allowed, accepted, and acknowledged..
We expanded our possibilities and encouraged each other.
We held each other dearly with love and tender soft care.

Nine months.
We could have had a baby by now, we said.
Shocked, we realized we had. More like
In Its Way, The Call birthed us, and, yes,
The Call was born, March 8, 2020.
It had been holding us; now we are holding It.
The Call Beloved. The Beloved Call.
Come Beloveds!
Come join us as we widen and deepen our circle ….
