“Do stuff. Be clenched, curious. Not waiting for inspiration’s shove or society’s kiss on your forehead. Pay attention. It’s all about paying attention. Attention is vitality. It connects you with others. It makes you eager. Stay eager.” ~ Sharon Salzberg
“I have been and still am a seeker, but I have ceased to question stars and books; I have begun to listen to the teaching my blood whispers to me.” ~ Hermann Hesse
“It was only a sunny smile, and little it cost in the giving, but like morning light it scattered the night and made the day worth living.” ~ F. Scott Fitzgerald
The best part of Summer so far is the cool nights and the darkness of morning. That darkness is fading into light, and I can see that rising light through gap between the curtains, and through a dusty window screen. Is this apprehension I feel? This rising light indicates that within hours it will be hot. Bring it on. The heat ain’t so bad, I suppose. Maybe I’m just being cranky? Likely so. I could go all cynical as well. But a sweet day is what I choose. Laundry, for one thing. Therapy at noon. Then a quiet afternoon with the cat. And soak up some sunlight at some point along the way. I’ve come to notice that letting pure sunlight shine on the back of my always stiff and sore neck is an exquisite sensation. Who knew, right? Little things. That’s today. All small.
Peace out, y’all. Goof gloriously
