Good Morning!!

This morning I read a definition of "mindfulness" as "vibrant, non-judgmental, and vigilant attention applied to the present moment."

As miserable as chemo was, I realize I was often in that place of non-judgment or I could not have made it through, and vigilant attention to what was happening "now and now and now."   It is more challenging now that I am surrounded with distraction and choice.  Then, I could only do what I could do.  It was very clear to me to eat when I was hungry and sleep when I was tired.  Now, I live in a smorgasbord of choice, and, so, it is for me to sound a mindfulness bell, and to continue to feel what I need in this moment, and to feel and know what is enough.

Enjoy another exquisite day.  My days overflow with an integration of ribbons.  I weave sorrow and joy, as I melt into the place of deepest feeling, where they meet.   I am richly blessed.   I give thanks for YOU, to YOU!   I think I realized yesterday how much we all are one, and I am you, and you are me.  It is fun, isn't it, to know how truly and deeply this is so.  How richly we weave and know compassion and care, within and without.  Sink deeply into love, like mud.  What a place to wiggle, squiggle, immerse!!

Enjoy!!   Be verse, a line that turns and curves!!
