The sun shines through crystals I have hanging in my office window, making rainbow faeries on my lavender walls. For nearly 30 decades, every morning there is sun, I have been greeted and found joy and peace and hope in the vision of fantasy and magic that dances around my sacred space as I prepare for a day of work and play and love, sometimes challenge, or struggle, or fear…..The morning sun that begins to waken my garden, greets me with constancy and always brings a smile to my face that reaches my eyes, and a lightness to my heart that moves gently throughout my entire body.
Aimee and I huddled in our car for several hours Thursday, Friday, and Saturday as the rain and chilly outside kept us from enjoying walks on the Boardwalk and reading feasts on benches overlooking Lake Ontario, as had been our plan for the time people would be looking at our home to see if it past muster. We were thorough about turning on lights, opening doors just so, closing closet doors just fine, putting the odd coffee cup in dish washer, picking up all of Aimee’s poo in the back yard: leaving our home so it appeared no one with a personality really lived there yet someone with class and perceptively wise would fall in love.
Saturday and Sunday dear friends gave us solace and succour as they welcomed us into their home and hearts while strangers believed they had the right to pass judgement on 25 + years of creation, dreams, love, unfolding, refolding, and folding down. Today we wait to find out who wants to begin the next phase of their life where we have felt off.
Life always changes. Not a statement of brilliance on my part. But absolutely a statement of profound awareness. I want what waits for me in Michigan. I am sad to leave what has held me and nurtured me for so many precious years of my life in Toronto. I came a woman in the middle of her prime. I leave an elder, preparing to look at my life in a new way.
- I am grateful to be who I am, where I am, what I am today.
- I am grateful this process has moved along with a certain amount of grace and ease.
- I am grateful Aimee, the most precious puppy on the planet, and I are both healthy.
- I am grateful for my friends and realtors, Marlene and Shantoo.
- I am grateful by later this evening I will know more about my future.
- I am grateful to be writing again.
- I apologize for no Quote. Just couldn’t go there this morning.
Blessings always, Nancy
