Mind is a snow globe, a crystal sphere with tiny people, animals, trees, houses inside. Thoughts and feelings are snow flakes.
A child, I became obsessed with shaking my little globe, fascinated by the mini- blizzard, not realizing the swirling flakes make the people almost impossible to see. So I build snow people, images of how I think others think, feel, believe, even I suspect, look.
I continue to shake, plan, scheme, worry, to build snow people. What if I stopped? If I allowed the snowflakes to settle, what would I see?
I’m told if I stopped creating my blizzard, let the flake settle, if I’d just sit and look, really look, I’d see others, and myself, as we really are. Even in knee-deep drifts, snow on our heads, flakes on our noses, we’re all perfect just as we are. No need for snow people.
