Holiday Hungers

Holiday Hungers from Rachel W Cole

Winter

I need a quiet thanksgiving for two, with braised turkey legs and twice baked sweet potatoes. And pie.

I need slightly over-full days of coaching, not because it’s easy right now, but because it’s just right.

I need to continue the pilgrimage I’m walking with my latest project. Long days, one after the other, picking my foot up and putting it down. Compass pointed toward a mecca of mine I’ve been wanting to reach for a long time.

I need a few stolen days of cuddles and laughter and making out, just enough to fuel the fire for the long trek.

I need time at my sewing machine because it’s the backbend to all of my many forward bends. Even if I hunch over it.

I need hard conversations. The kind that turn the universe on it’s head and demand fresh answers to unvisited questions.

I need people in my life who do what I don’t do as well. They the base of my pyramid, allowing me to reach higher.

I need tickles, given and received from a heart-on-wobbly-legs toddler.

I need candles that I’ve blessed, sesame oil on my skin, new perfume for a new chapter, and homemade minestrone.

I need stillness and alone time, married to tables wrapped in my favorite people.

I need a yoga practice that asks nothing more of my body than to show up and respond to what is felt.

I need to let love in. Truly. Open the doors, throw back the shutters and say, “Come in, it’s cold out there. Would you like a cup of tea?”

This is what I need this holiday season. What do you need?
