Rest in the sensation
that soaring on this breath
Today was a long day and a hard day. I had to let go of things I’d expected to have time to do. I had to release expectations. And, I had to accept information that I didn’t want. I went to the woods twice today, the first time before taking my toddler to the dentist and the second after we returned. I had a powerful sense that I just wanted permission. Permission to not do anything else today.
lay on the couch with a book
permission to quit for a minute
permission to stop
permission to get off the spinning wheel
permission to say no thanks
permission to say no
permission to say I changed my mind
permission to say I don’t want to
permission not to finish
permission not to do
permission to take a break
right now is a time to be still
to rest and self-nurture
to snuggle with cuddly babies
lay on a husband’s shoulder
call your spirit back
and emerge once more
On the first woods visit in an effort to distract myself from the later appointment, I took some new sculptures down to the rocks to photograph and bless before shipping.
On my second visit to the woods I watched two hawks flying. They swung back and forth through the sky for a period of time and then flew away.
Permission not to write any more tonight.
