An image washes over the mind………

I find it fascinating how a past experience, recorded in part in an image, can elicit sensations of sounds, temperature, state of mind, state of heart. The below pic was on a hot, windy afternoon on a lake. I had battled the winds and waves and eventually found a soft spot in a back bay out of the winds. The air was warm, filled with pine and juniper. The temperature was hot and the breeze brought sweat to the neck and forehead. The wind cut away the words of my partner as we attempted to converse. I stopped fighting it, I found shelter, I let go and took it in. I gave thanks for the moment knowing I would have to get back across that lake in that wind. But, I knew I was going to be just fine. Oh, and there were fish resting in that back bay as well. The image is soothing on this chilly Winter’s day.



Faint shadows…

It was a blessed Christmas, quite Merry and in perfect balance this year. In years past, there was a harried sense, a regret over priorities askew, too much focus and finding/buying and less on the spiritual, familial and giving thanks. This year the pace was busy, there was my usual pre-holiday cold, the last minute this and that…but, this year everyone (12 of us) was in a good place. There was the right balance of presents, visiting, great foods and lots of hugs and ‘I love you’s. We all paid silent homage to those that have passed and were instrumental in establishing this celebration in our young minds.

Of course, this morning everyone is zonked out and there are many dishes, glasses, cups to clean up. But, the warm glow of thankfulness rules. Right now, I have a five year old grandson, who spent the night next to me, itching to go kick a new soccer ball somewhere and not hear ‘hey, not in the house!!’
