My spirits wishes for ...
... a chunk of time and the space to just rest and be.
Even taking time to post this is craziness as I am running around trying to get ready to travel tomorrow to help move my mother here. I was to leave today, but when the forecast called for possible blizzard conditions, I changed my flight. Still, I don't know how I'll get to the airport for a 5:45 am flight tomorrow, a stay in a airport hotel maybe necessary if we can get out this afternoon. And it seems loose ends are dangling all about my house, threatening to trip me with every step.
Have I mentioned the dog won't go potty in the deep snow? And Cowgirl is scurrying around the house as a dog woofing and making a wonderful ruckus as a background soundtrack to my frantic mind.
So all of me screams out for peace, quiet and time to just settle in and be. I want to enjoy this season and all its magic. I want to be alert to the whisperings of my spirit and nourish it with play, light, inspiration and joy.
All I can do right now is pause, take a breath, ask of myself: what do I absolutely have to do now? And just look at the one step before me. Baby steps. Baby breathing with my whole body. Ah yes, and look at the light reflecting off of the snow drifts. Lovely.
It will all get done somehow. But before the activity, taking this time to cast my wish. Ah, yes, better now!
