Yawning bones

As I am wakeful in the night …..

 

Quote to Ponder:

The journey between what you once were and who you are now becoming is where the dance of life really takes place.

As ‘my boy’ nears the end of his road trip I would like to share a wee re-blog as mummy is a busy bee and may well not be on WP too much over the next few weeks. I may put down my writing tools until I am settled back into my life after a bit of movement during September. By then autumn will be chasing me and the changing patterns of nature will draw me in. Wishing you well and see you soon. Andrea

No I have not been eaten by a bear or driven off a cliff into the Pacific only to be eaten by a Megalodon!

As you will have seen from my previous post my friends from Dubai came to visit so I spent some time traveling with them and generally being a tourist. I will post up a separate entry for their visit shortly with pictures and trip details. I also spent a few days after they left with my family up in San Francisco which was nice as I got to hang out and baby sit my young siblings which was exhausting but awesome at the same time.

However before inertia kicked in I thought I would get a few more days out on the open road before I have to draw this adventure to a close. I packed my bags and headed north on the highway 1 yesterday…

unhurried

BEing mindful I am bathed in gold

Image

… I swim through dappled green

Image

and rest in puffs of summer sky

Image

BEing mindful my eyes settle gently on the world

Image

…I reach out and barely touch each intricate detail

Image

That moment of seeing,of touching, of feeling….of BEing.

Image

I am living in the moment and the moment is good.

It has been a while since I wrote about mindfulness directly, but that does not mean I am not living in the moment.

I am living in the moment, in days and weeks that have been more filled with stuff that needs to be actioned than usual.

I would like to write more and look more and capture more, but the days when I can will come to me when the time is right.
Those days are gifts which I will unwrap with care and I will  relish them.

When you are tired, rest a while.
When you are hungry, eat a little.
When you are fearful, trust in yourself.
When you feel overwhelmed, slow down and consider.
When today feels too big, make it smaller in your mind.
When you wonder at your value, remind yourself that your are important.

what a day

Not quite sun rise this blast of sea and sky,

with people rousing from their beds.

Image

Such light –

Image

such blue and grey and white.

Slow start and pace of footsteps in the shingle,

washed by gentle ripples.

Image

A strip of light at anchor touches France

Image

so close at hand.
