A grumbling, then a hum
Happiness and dissatisfaction can reside in the same space. I know this.
So I allow this dis-ease that I am not living to my full potential loom. Stay with it, I tell myself, stay with the discomfort for as long as it needs to last, stay present. Invisible vines remain wrapped around my ankles, but my dreams keep me afloat. This feeling is all too familiar, but for now they are thoughts that pass by above like the white against the blue. For now, it still is just a grumbling, a rumbling, and a crescendo that hasn't hit its peak. My time to clip those vines isn't here yet, and I know it.
So I grasp the handle, and slowly, close the door.
I shake my head to remove the hair from my eyes, feeling as if I just passed through a portal. My vision clears and I see Alfie's leg has takes over my keyboard. Joy, that's what this cat brings. I focus on what comes next:
A Heidi Swanson dinner that I am cooking for the first time tonight (wish me luck!) for a lovely new friend named Canary
A night with Hubs at the Avett Brothers' concert in Red Rocks!!
Another hike planned for tomorrow morning with the boy.
And I find myself humming this song... :)...
Much love to you all...
Keeping it Real...
