Good Morning!!

I am thrilled to wake to the sound of rain and two kitties, now cats, asleep on my feet.  I wake perky, and Bella gets up with me, but Tiger prefers to sleep with Steve and moves over to his feet.   Bella and I think it is the perfect morning to be up early.  I feel well-rested.   Well, yes, you might say.  I had quite a bit of well-needed sleep.

I have a rose here that is enormous.  Since it is a Peace rose, I am hoping it is an omen of what is coming.  There are peace marches all over the bay area tonight.  I'll see if I make it to one.  I have quite a bit to do, but my rose is a reminder of what can be.  It is an explosion of huge petals in pale yellow.  I have a soft, ruffled sun scenting my space. 

Mitchell Louis is home now after months in the hospital, and his parents posted this in thanks to all the help and gifts they have received. 

Galatians 6:9
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.


 I read these words of Albert Camus, and resolve to live today full embraced in the "implacable grandeur of this life.


"If there is a sin against life, it consists perhaps not so much in despairing of life, as in hoping for another life, and in eluding the implacable grandeur of this life."

I have been reading Sue Monk Kidd's book When the Heart Waits.  It is about relaxing into waiting and is filled with wonderful quotes and advice.  Her grandfather used to fish without bait.  He said, "Well, sometimes it's not the fish I'm after.  It's the fishing."   I understand.

May today open in space and may you be aware of your back and ask a friend to paint it for you in whatever color you choose.  I am choosing pink.

Yesterday I realized it is very odd that some of us have cars where we pre-set the seat location.  I notice that I change, and a pre-set does not suit me.  Some days I am sitting straight and others more curved, and perhaps it is important to adjust the seat and mirrors each time we get in the car and not assume that each day we are the same because we are not.   Notice your spine and how it lengthens, straightens, and curls.  Happy Day!
