We don’t really ever stumble upon our path to the Underworld- we each blaze a trail down to the very core of that darkness that some of us crave or need or find ourselves the slaves too.
It’s such a small step to take- all we have to do is look down, fall to our knees and lift, push or dig to find that door.
Are we ever surprised when we consider how easy it is to find ourselves there?
Yesterday I was walking through Pioneer Square in Seattle and I saw a lot of manhole covers- on the street, on the side walks- each of them inviting me to look down, to look at them and to consider
what it I would find if I were to lift one and descend.
Would I find the obvious? Or would I find something else?
I would hope to find ‘something else’
