Welcoming the Sun
Haven't slowed down except to wait in the warm sun at grandson's school with my audio book waiting for him to get out.
It's a balmy 73 degrees F and the birds are happy - so happy and I'm feeling a deep quiet passion as this sun soaks me in its warmth....
I'm regaining a lost art, left behind many, many years ago. That of sitting. Being grounded, bare feet on ground feeling blades of grass, hearing nature, trees rustling...am I finally slowing the mad race of life?
Sitting in the sun on the porch listening to birds talking - don't know what they are saying but is giving me great peace....kitty sitting at my feet (probably wishing she had one for a snack) - - contemplating stages of life and ebb and flow while practicing letting past go.....ah ha - she has just spied a bird and is lumbering off after it - poor thing has an eating disorder and is rather portly.
Thanks for sharing my golden moment. Now time to fix grandson dinner and get him off to Boy Scouts - I have to stay in there with him, that will be interesting.
Take heart, I think the birds are saying - "Soon, soon, let's gather and head north!" I shopped for bathing suits over the internet today - - - thinking of the beach - - -
