From the series, You Have a Song to Sing.

In this illustration, a sunflower in its full glory, framed by a green calyx, and in the background, little heart-shaped petals from a zinnia. Every flower has a story and sunflower is no different: Happiest facing the sun, she reminds us to shine, to grow beyond all limits, and to reach great heights.

Carrying on the fall themes of change, letting go, transition....
Let go of all the messages that say you're reaching too high, that you're not ready, that you need to follow the rules, that you're getting a little too bold, or waking up to your potential and dreaming yourself out of someone else's comfort zone.

You don't need to look outside yourself for approval, direction, validation of your dreams. You have a great navigation device already installed, an HPS (heart positioning system). It will get you where you need to go.

Firse 2 verses of one of my favorite poems:
The Waking by Theodore Roethke

I wake to sleep and take my waking slow.
I feel my fate in what I cannot fear.
I learn by going where I have to go.

We think by feeling, what is there to know?
I hear my being dance from ear to ear.
I wake to sleep and take my waking slow.
