Battery low warnings and I rush to plug in the charger. If only we had such a warning within ourselves to let us know that our energy is almost all gone. I think we do but we are well practiced in ignoring it. 

 

 

I gobble up a small book of poetry. My intention was to sit with just a few poems but once I started I couldn't stop. If one can binge watch a television show why not poetry? 

 

 

Wise words from awhile ago. "When you say yes to something you are also saying no to another thing." This is true. This week, I said no and that created room for me to say yes. It's all about choices.

 

 

How do I know that I made the right choice? Sometimes I don't know; I simply have to choose and trust the choice. 

 

 

I am sending myself back to school, full of courses curated by me. I love learning. 

 

 

It's been a another whirlwind week in a series of whirlwind weeks. But today, i feel hopeful. 

 

 

I am intensely feeling these words from Kahlil Gibrain
"Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you."

 

 

What wondrous magic it is to have had Noah in my life. It confounds me that he is gone and I think it confounds me just as much that he ever came to me. How lucky we are to have known his love and his presence for the little bit of time he visited this world. 

 

 

It has been the longest day, in the best of ways. I'll take more days like this please.
