Greetings Beloved SWERVER,

I tried dry shampoo for the first time. Whoa. That stuff is nuts. I mean, it works. It makes my dirty hair all full of...dry-ness, powdery, sorta, weird, dry, not greasy, yummy-smelling, kinda like dry powdery candy-smelling hair. And I think, even though I feel like a dirty hippie, I like it. So far. We'll see...

I tried going on a date with my Uber driver. OMG. It was great, even though we are like 17 years apart in age and from totally different tribes. It was a meeting of the hearts and minds and a first for me. And him. And he was like, "If anybody ever asks me if driving Uber was worth it, I'm gonna be like, 'Yeah. 100%.'"

We're trying out the "Express" class this month--an abbreviated version of SWERVE's regular format, packed into a 45-minute blast. We're trying out a whole bevvy of new classes this month, taking risks and targeting reward! We screwed our courage to the sticking point and thought, "We might fail, but we're going for it!" I'm aiming for success, using experience coupled with research as my bow, courage to try something new as my arrow and desire to express my creativity as the hard and tight draw-back of the string. Archery (and most of the skill-requiring stuff in life) takes practice.

I'm practicing trying something new. I'm not really sure if it's safe and effective, but I am sure it's fun. Life feels like a little lighthearted adventure rather than a big weighty thing. In this way I'm trying out doing just a little bit. Pushing just a little bit, pulling just a little bit, resting and observing just a little bit, too. I wonder if my sharp corners are softening with this gentler approach? 

Do you point your finger in a direction and find what you're looking for? Do you flail about? Yeah, me too. I do both. But more and more of late, it appears that pointing my finger and then holding the result in my hand  is a skill that through dedicated practice I've gained some skill at. I mean, it's not magic. Practice gets us better at things and we are rapidly evolving, Beloved SWERVER. You can feel it. Practice is making us much more capable and much more aware. It's very exciting and I'm excited.

What if we got swept up in a flood of enthusiasm? What if in our joy and abundance we pointed our resources toward our brothers in need? There was a flood of rain in Baton Rouge and those people could certainly benefit from our awareness, prayers and donations. We could try something new and take some small action. Just a little bit.

Namasté,

Gillian Alexandria Clark
