Dragonfruit Sunrise - DAY ONE
At last our full group of mothers, daughters, visionaries and leaders have gathered in the bustling, steamy city of Phenom Penh. I'm awakening now, on the second day, to the sound of birds and deepening sunrise, knowing that delicous dragonfruit awaits - as well as as the voices of more incredible women.
My ears, eyes and heart are still ringing from yesterday -- walking the grounds of genocide where torture is in the dust, and you can hear the echoes of children crying ----- and then circling around the soaring voice of one of CAmbodia's most prominent women - Mu Sochua. What a tigress for women she is! I can taste her vision, her yearnings for the country's renewal.....and we all shared our stories, and what brought us to this moment. There was a spiral of connection - and the soul of World Pulse was in everyone's breath.
From there, to the waters of the great river, waves of children, a moon almost full -- exhaustion of so many raw moments...and the joy of being in each others company.
What will day two bring??
