Good Morning!!

What a delight! Rain all night!! And we still have power. It is usual around here than when the wind blows with strong gusts, the power pops off. One December, the power was off almost a week, until Peter Coyote who is also on our circuit complained publicly about PGE. Amazingly, they suddenly decided our area was worth bothering with as to power restoration. I realize now that the power has been a bit more reliable since then, but when you live in an area of falling branches and trees, and the roar of chainsaws during storms, you have to be flexible. So, if you don't hear from me, that will be why. No power!

A very good friend came by yesterday with lasagne and we chatted a bit, and then, a longer bit, and, then, she noticed I was slumped in my chair. It is odd to realize just how limited my energy is. I used to sit ram-rod straight. Now, I use the support of the chair. It is important for me to realize I am doing that in every way now, using and receiving support. The hermit side of me used to be strong, and now, I realize how connected I am, and how much help I need. This is a very good thing, I believe, and may be my lesson received from the cancer and its treatment. No hermit for me.

I am standing delighted, with my arms out, and my face tilted up, whirling around with my mouth wide open, to receive the wonderful rain of the storm.

Great love to all,
