As my visit is drawing to a close, the sun is rising over Brooklyn. The magic red couch is holding me as if I weren’t leaving tomorrow. I have come apart at the seams, and I feel safe.
True transformation, I have learned here at the soul-care garage, does not require the impossible. “If you let yourself feel the world’s needs and shortcomings to the bone and let it transform you, you will have everything you’ll ever need.”
I am prepared now.
So I will leave this place, with a suitcase full of stories and a heart full of love, and will start unearthing the treasures I didn’t know I was carrying all along.
