I have a good life. That's an understatement. And I have plenty of things going on in my life that keep me occupied... keep me moving; if not forward, at least moving. I don't feel like my life is hectic, it's just full. But unfortunately many of the things I do every day are simply little more than consumers of time; and those tend to move in slow motion and more often than not, simply keep me from getting to the things that I would much rather be doing. I doubt I am very unique when it comes to that. There are people out there that lead much busier lives than I ever will, and yet it seems that most of the things I experience on any given day, the things that actually deserve to be held and turned over and caressed, and allowed to soak in; instead sweep past me in a blur, before I can even take the time to process what has happened. Not quite sure why that is, or how to fix it. And blogging about any of that?... well, obviously that won't happen very often. By the time I've thought about most things I would want to share with you all, it's 50 miles behind me. The little voices whisper... simplify your life. They tell me that I need to treasure the love that comes my way, every day. And give it back in full measure. That's a given. Clear away the clutter and realize what is important and what feeds your soul. That's what they say. I need to get back into the habit of getting out and exploring the world around me. Reignite my curiosity and wonder. Walk in the woods... pick up neat looking rocks and moss and bones, get my feet wet... and let those things have a happy reunion with my 200,000 year old self. Yes, that's what they say... and then
Dang! look at the time; I've got to get back to work. My lunch break is over already. Sigh. Peace to you all. ;)
I will be home in a few hours, and enjoy the evening with Pam. And maybe later I'll go down to my studio and make something out of clay. It's almost like a walk in the woods. Almost.
