My hair is being pulled

The idea of hair pulling might conjure unpleasant images, but there's a more sensual side to hair-pulling as well. As we head into this darkest season of the year, I'm lifting to the cosmos a desire to have the spiritual realm tug and tangle with my thoughts. As Anaïs Nin wrote in Fire: From "A Journal of Love": The Unexpurgated Diary of Anaïs Nin, 1934-1937, I'm wishing

"to be rent and pulled apart and live according to the demons and the imagination in me. 
I’m restless. Things are calling me away. My hair is being pulled by the stars again."
