gratituesday 1/13

It’s Tuesday morning, I’m listening to comedy radio, I’m smiling, the weather’s warm, the sun’s rays are falling across my face, I’m wearing my new orange-red silk boxers, I took out my paints and brushes last night and painted a shadow box—I’m doing art again!

I went to two meetings yesterday. I went to DA and talked about letting go of eighteen years of uninterrupted solvency and being a beginner again. How did this happen? Did I rack up a bunch of credit-card debt? Nope. I went to hula practice with no money and my hula sisters had to pay my share of the practice fee. Enough is enough. I get to be a beginner. It’s kinda cool.

I took a nap yesterday afternoon; the fatigue was intense. And fell asleep last night really fast and hard…couldn’t even finish the page I was reading. I am grateful that I have faith that my health will improve improve improve.

Life is lovely and I am blessed.

I’m a barely tamed hippie, sage, seasoned, sarcastic (not all the time any more, but still). I’m a mom, a daughter, sister, a neighbor, and a friend. I’ve been on this meandering journey — like you, probably — seeking a better connection to and experience of peace, harmony, and fun in every bit of life. I’m single, quite good at it, and mostly love it. I’m here for the conversations I get to have with you, which these days center on exploring the mystery and beauty of life, work, health, aging, and creative expression. Want to know a little more about me and my journey? Explore the site. Read the blog. Connect with me on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and LinkedIn.

  1. And when will I get to see some of this art you are creating again? Very interested. By the way, this tea that you gifted me is probably the best I’ve tasted IN MY LIFE!!!! Seriously, it’s so good and I’m heating up the water constantly to make another cuppa. Thank you so much for this.

    ps-I have faith that my health will improve also. I have plans to dance dance dance when the time comes!

Chime in!
