Alan - sunrise - Palm Springs area

Summer in November!

I sit here now, all windows open.  I've turned the sprinklers on and been out watering.  I am sun-burned from two beautiful walks I enjoyed this weekend, one along the bay in Tiburon with a friend, and another to Tennessee Valley beach with another friend.  Heaven.

We went to a birthday party last night of a friend and neighbor who is a musician and turned sixty.  His musical friends gathered at the Sausalito Cruising Club which is on a barge connected to land by a little bridge, and so as the tide goes out begins to tilt and settle into the mud, and then, the water returns.  The music was incredible, absolutely incredible. Everyone danced, and it was a mature crowd, and, we all were young.  The night was warm and the bay calm.

I have been reading the book recommended by bobby1933, The Naked Now, Learning to See as the Mystics See by Richard Rohr.  People I know are so nervous about the election but this book is allowing me to relax into a bigger picture, a bigger whole, a deeper trust.

I don't know how it will end.  I've filled out my ballot and will take it in tomorrow.  Meanwhile, life is full, each moment, rich. 

Here is a wonderful article written by Seymour Carter.  I think it will give you a sense of him and of Sensory Awareness.  It seems he was prepared for transition, as we all might be if it is important to us to prepare.  

Peace, and may Obama continue as president!!

Also, for those in CA, Yes on 37!!   I truly am relaxed.  :-)
