Thank you for your lovely presence Thomas. Yes, like you, I am also learning every moment about my unfolding in this 'connected unfolding world' - what a challenge and a Grace it is I feel!

And the Crane is indeed so graceful as I just wrote the word! :)

Majestic

Willful

Strong

Calm

Balanced

Wise

In Japan, the crane is sacred. S/he is also endangered worldwide. There are some beautiful photos of Japanese Zen meditation masters with cranes that I had come across in the past with all the qualities you mentioned above embodied and represented so beautifully.

Sending love,

Aspasia
