Not today. Today I stay close to a poorly sick boy, who has dark circles around his eyes and a small elfin face, so very pale. Tomorrow, (touch wood) I will begin the cleanse.
It's something I do after any protracted illnesses. The house is thoroughly aired, rooms well cleaned, bedding changed, healing herbs burned and wafted through the rooms to cleanse the air, and a vase of flowers to brighten and cheer. A small blessing for health and joy.
My little house has stagnated, rooms are full of items needing to be put away, dust has collected on ornaments and shelves, a general state of unkeep and neglect. The stagnation runs deeper than a few messy rooms, its in the air, I can feel its oppressive breath on my skin. Balance has been disrupted and it is affecting us both.
The cleanse will begin.
