It is another astonishingly beautiful day. We slept with the windows open,unusual for here. All was complete silence until the birds awoke and now they light the air with sound.
Jane and I walked on the mountain yesterday and circled the top and then sat up on the rocks at the fire look-out. We were embraced in the flight of Swallowtail butterflies. What a cleansing. It is the first time we have been together without working since October of 2005, so it was quite a treat. I carried a notebook just in case, but this day was about letting it all go and trusting the book will find its audience and home. I feel so awake this morning, and so relaxed in an alert way. I have been spending more time with trees, our great teachers, and learning their way to speak.
These words come this morning. I like them as a way to begin my week.
"First say to yourself what you would be; and then do what you have to do."
