Andrea House

Andrea House

I have a therapist. Now that’s a sentence I thought I’d never use. But there it is.

My wife encouraged me to see her. And now I too, am drawn into her circle.

What Andrea does:

She listens to the motion within you through the tips of her fingers and tells the strength of your ch’i by your colour.

While you lie surrounded by full, accepting colours, she works healing with her needles and her hands.

She gives you essence of oranges and white peonies. And other things that come all the way from China. And tea if you like.

She speaks wisdom to you. The wisdom of listening and living within your body. The wisdom of sleep cycles and daily rhythm.

From Heart’s Hotel CD

She recalls for you your more genuine desires and gently helps you dismiss the phantom duties that exhaust you.

And then when she’s done all this she sends you home with songs.

And you drink red wine by a gas fireplace and listen to her voice–powerfully delicate.

And from your eastern window you regard the mystery and mercy of gathering night.

  1. now you are getting a little weird

    (not that there is anything wrong with that.)

    ‘tea and oranges’ you say,
    are you sure you’re not seeing Leonard C.’s old flame Suzzanne?

  2. Always tried for weird. With the exception of the 70’s and a few lingering years either way, I’ve been far too sane. So thank you. Of course we are all curiously weird in our ways.

    And yes, Suzanne came to the surface right after I wrote the lines. We are all composites. A good thing as long as the glue holds. Otherwise weird goes to wired. (happy face here) steve

  3. I love Cohen
    If you are being fed tea and oranges by Suzanne as she takes you down to the her place by the river

    I am sure it for medicinal and spiritual purposes only.

    God Bless you
