With the boys here with me this summer, lots of activity is added to the already hustle bustle of summer fetes, concerts, aperos and other activities that get crammed in. Holiday makers are here. Friends and sometimes friends of friends have arrived and EVERYONE wants to do something. I, on the other hand, often want to do NOTHING!
Today is my NOTHING day.
Of course, Ollie and Opie are running around like mad men, sleeping, eating and more madness. They are such good company. But, this morning I did something I haven't done since I've been home.
I sat at my table, journaled, coffeed, AND lit my candles and enjoyed my roses in the morning darkness.
The rhythm to my life here is different now. I sat in the darkness and drank my coffee in the quiet.
A bat visitor flew in, but I remembered to turn all the lights on outside and he left. Dali was here with me. I kissed her sweet big nose and felt the feel of her when I oftened hugged her big self in my arms. Sam was here too, but she sat in the background like she always used to do when Dali was with me.
This dark and cool in the silence of the morning here just before dawn is amazing. I've been missing it, and so much more, from upstairs.
I am feeling the flow of here again.
