hello?

7.30.2009

yes, i'm still here.
feeling very strange and out of place today.
so i'm just going to sit with it.
i'm allowing myself to do almost nothing today.
well, at least i let go of my asana practice,
and that's saying something.
this is in my head:
"but i'll tell you life is sweet,
inspite of the misery
there's so much more to be grateful."

and i am grateful.
always.
here's a list.
one. i am oh so grateful for a very good friend that i get to see everyday: cj
two. i am indeed grateful for difficult days. they stretch me, and remind me i am human.
three. i am grateful for shelves full of books written by wonderful people.
four. i am grateful for all that life has to offer...even if somedays it feels like it's not offering it to me.
five. i am grateful for music that enters my ears, but touches my soul
six. i am grateful for tears
seven. i am grateful for laughter...especially when i can laugh at myself
eight. i am grateful that life goes on...that the sun rises everyday, and never stops
nine. i am grateful for rain...especially when i haven't felt it in months
ten. i am grateful for a friend who is there for me whenever i need someone to say something encouraging: cj (love you!)
what are you grateful for?

mountains so incredible they look fake, a healthy body, inspiration, the lack of inspiration only because it asks me to be patient and humble. flowers. kindred spirits.
