Goddess of the Bog by Denise Durocher
I have been attracted to the bog for the longest time. I feel that it calls out to me from depths unknown, to listen, to explore, to know, to honour all the life it holds: the living, the dying, and the decomposing. It is all one.
When I started Focusing, this is the image that often came to me. So once when I was walking there, I gathered some organic matter and made a mask from it.
Now, when my eyes rest on it, I remember the bog’s lesson and sit. Then in a moment or two comes the realization: “ah yes! .. there is something shifting deep inside of me, let me stay here a while”.
