The Holidays As A Hollowing Out
Paradoxically, it’s the emptiness of things that lets us glimpse their full capacity. Most musical instruments are hollowed out, because if they weren’t there would be no music.
Guitars are hollowed out. String instruments are hollowed out. Drums are hollowed out. Reed instruments are hollowed out. This is a great example of the necessity of emptiness in order to make music. It’s true with our lives.
Each of us is an instrument that experience hollows out in order to have our souls release their song.”
Does the thought of the upcoming Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays bring:
- Resentment with all that needs to be accomplished?
- Sadness of long-gone holiday gatherings?
- Indifference thinking ‘it is just another day’?
Please join a small group of women (5 – 8) to ponder the holidays as a hollowing out.
