Peace in the Rain

Posted on

Underneath my house is a small sitting nook. As it rains I am marching in place in the nook to the tune of Roy Ayers “Everybody Loves the Sunshine.” Nearby Grace relaxs on a chair.
We are in the midst of quite a lot right now but even during the rain we can find time to relax and get some peace.

Today, Grace AKA “Diva Cat” and I sat out back and watched two squirrels chase each other up and down the big tree in my yard.

For the squirrels fun. For us peace.

Social Distancing – The Mental Kind

Posted on

We are all getting more acquainted with Social Distancing.  Health experts have warned us that this is what is needed to stop the spread of the coronavirus.  For our lives, sakes and the sakes of others’ lives and health, we have been asked to create physical space when shopping or visiting neighbors and friends.

Still, for some, that may not be enough.  There are a lot of people who need to “social distance” in their own homes.  Some of us also need to distance ourselves mentally from less than positive influences.  We need to practice  Social Distancing of the mental kind.

 

 

Changing Course

Posted on

Grace, the lovely big Tabby got a taste of the outdoors today.  I let her come out as I watered mums and swept debris from the giant pine tree in my back yard.  She explored and then obediently went inside without being coaxed.  She seems to have struck a balance in her life as she changes course. Many of you know Grace can be very demanding and vocal about her concerns.  I watch her adapt to a new routine quietly marking her territory deciding how she wants to experience her new surroundings.  Fall is a time of change.   Colder weather sets in, the leaves on the trees change colors and our work schedules take on some intensity.  The last quarter of the year.  It can for some of us be a time of upheaval, often things take a different turn and we have to change course and change our expectations.
