Now, that it's almost here, I'm starting to feel a little sobered that tomorrow is the day resolutions are meant to take place.
Perhaps I have been too greedy in all my requests for perfection in my New Year.
I'm also sitting with that I do not seem to be a person who is very fond of change. Life is motion. It is flux.
I'm going to try and roll a little more easily with the punch.
Today, we noticed that Bella walked off the side of the deck onto a branch of a tree, and sat in the tree like a bird. She was content, sitting there among the leaves. Perhaps I can spend time visualizing myself as different animals and different groups of people. I love sow bugs, or roly poly's, as they are also called. I visualize myself now curling into a ball and rolling like a wheel up and down hills.
The books I have been reading lately seem to be about one group of people not understanding another. I just began reading Serve the People, A Stir-Fried Journey through China by Jen Lin-Liu. It is a fascinating look at China and includes recipes. I recommend it.
