I'm So Lucky

I've always felt lucky. But today, at this moment I feel fortunate. Fortunate for Mason and all the small special moments we share, for Mike and all that he brings to my life, for school and learning new things and for only missing one on my test today, for my health, my curiosity, my friends, family, creativity, my attention for details, my ability to loose focus, for the beautiful things I see and experience in nature every day, for my wonderful house and neighbors, for laughter and tears, for every night that I get to put Mas to bed and fall asleep beside Mike, for M&M's, all kinds, I don't discriminate. I think that I will keep my run on sentence and thought going for another post. It is usually this time of day that I turn in and reflect. What about you??

Memories





Thoroughly exhausted. A long day playing on the beach and in the Ocean. The sun and sand are blazing on my skin. Sliding the heavy glass door open to go inside the freezing beach house. Wet bathing suit and sand still between my toes. A pinch of Carolina fudge cake, homemade, just melts in my mouth. Pour a big red cup full of fresh fizzing Coke. The bubbles pop and hit my nose as the first gulp takes my breath away. Hands are pruney and salty from the sea water. Reach into the big bag of nacho cheese Doritos. The first one covered in cheese crunches loudly. Crumbs go flying. Another and another and another. These things are definitely crack. Half the bag is gone and fingers are saturated with flavor. Perfectly satisfied.

One of my favorites.

PS- sorry for the not so hot picture.

Balance


Feeling quite overwhelmed today. Trying to balance homework, fun time, relaxing, bill planning, laundry, all the usual. I've been really frustrated feeling all weekend. Weird, I am so excited about school but worrying about getting everything done. I think I need to cut myself some slack. Do you ever get worked up like this too?

Yoga always helps me get back to my core. I did sun salutation this morning and practiced my head stand against the wall but I still felt so rushed, so pressed. Sigh... Just a lot going on. Need to quiet the mind and reflect on all that is good and all that I am getting done and realize that my life is changing and to just go with it for now.

We've been home this morning, cleaning up, getting ready for the new week and just seeing all the things that lie ahead of me in life and all the things I've neglected (piles of papers, weeding the flower beds, projects undone). That's what bothers me. I'm happy coloring whales with Mason, so I wonder how do you get it all done? How do you have free time if you're always preparing for the next thing. I'm driving myself crazy! Well having a sense of humor about things is helpful, it's definitely helping me at this moment. Maybe to get things done you have to shed the worries and do each task. That way you feel lighter and more balanced.

Ciao!

P.S.-I'm so ready for fall. I know I'll miss summer but lordy I am over this heat. Ready for some perfect 70 degree days!

When You Call My Name


Picture from Fall 2010


Dawes.  Check It!

If all my lovers sing the big words
And all my brothers keep them small
Then I get lost in the difference, between their whisper and the echo of their call
So I am headed for the ocean,
to let the sea-smoke guide me in.
I'll give up my belongings and questions,
they only ever taught me to begin.

So I will not turn around,
as I step up to the train,
But I'll hear it when you call my name.
And I will not be the sound,
of your roof under the rain,
But I'll hear it when you call my name.

So I am taking off my wrist watch,
to let the time move how I please.
To let my day be guided by the sunlight,
Through mornings knell and twilights soft release

So if you want to get to know me,
follow my smile into it's curves
All these lines are born in sorrows and in pleasures,
and every man ends up with the face that he deserves.

So I will not give you bread,
As you reach out from your cage,
But I'll hear it when you call my name.
And I will not give applause,
as you step off of the stage,
But I'll hear it when you call my name.

There's a river running through the city
Gently reminding me what's what.
Of course, you are invited to come with me
But I don't think that's really what you want.
I think you want a world that will hold you,
Through security, and gravity, and love
And I can't think of anyone who'd blame you,
And I can't think of how that'd be enough.

So I won't come back around,
When you've cursed the ground you've tamed,
But I'll hear it when you call my name
And when you realize once I'm gone
That I never really came,
Oh, I'll hear it when you call my name.

And when the burden of the sun,
Reveals to you it's pain,
Oh, I'll hear it when you call my name.
And when you realize that you're wrong,
But you still give me all the blame,
I'll hear it when you call my name.

You Are Where You Eat

Heh Heh!
Mike and I have been talking more and more about eating organic foods but more than that. We'd like to eat more locally grown foods, veggies, fish, shrimp etc...

It's definitely a goal of ours and something that will be good for our bodies, the earth and local "farmers". Sometimes it seems like a daunting task to cut out processed food but I see so many people who look and feel and act so unhealthy, it drives me to want to eat more natural foods.

Earlier this year I got the chance to sit in on a cooking demo by Chef Shawn Pratt of GATHERINGS. His enthusiasm for food was contagious and he is all about living sustainably and cooking for a healthy body and mind. It was a great experience and I think the littlest bit you can do to take care of yourself is empowering and special!

Until next time, be kind to yourself!

XoXo
