the storm

The theme of the storm keeps coming into my life this week. I did my funny little divination game with the dictionary yesterday morning and asked, “What do I need to know about my life right now?” I closed my eyes, opened up the dictionary and got the word “storm.” This felt like an apt description, and comforting somehow, knowing that storms actually have an end point and that sunshine eventually finds its way through grey clouds.

Later in the day I went to an amazing celebration at Glide church. My favorite song of the day was sung by Vernon Bush. The lyrics said, “Well my brothers/sisters, the storm ain’t gonna last always…” Later, during the sermon, the storm theme returned when Douglass Fitch preached about making it to shore on the broken pieces of your life. He reminded us that when the storm comes, we can still make it on our brokenness. We don’t have to be whole, or perfect, or together to make it through.

And to complete the set, my first show of the holiday season is this Saturday night. It is called, you guessed it, Storm. It is a fashion show and party featuring 100 emerging SF designers.

If you are in the bay area, I hope to see you there!

    Um, so, we just did this dictionary business and my word was ‘metatarsal.’
    I don’t know what to make of that.
