11 years ago

11 years ago i spent the afternoon raking up lots of leaves in our garden and, later, climbing up & down the stairs inside the house again and again.
waiting for the birth of the mondenkind to begin (she was one week overdue) …
not being able to relax and just let things happen, let things flow in their own rhythm, i tried to push my body.

yes, i have learned a lot since then. but every now and then i am still struggling with letting the river flow like it is meant to be – either trying to hold it back or yearning to push it.
