I’ve been tired, and the past two days were very meaningful to me. I’m exhausted, but complete. Despite the fatigue, my face seems to have softened and there is a glow to it without any product necessary. My cheeks were unusually rosy this morning, something that is not at all common for me. Overall, I surrendered to more rest and just being still. I try my best to meditate with the withdrawal from nature, and I’m learning that it really is possible anywhere, although nothing beats connecting with Mother Earth and doing so while walking through the woods. I’m taking many moments, my body needs it, and I’m breathing deeply through it all.
I decided to schedule just a simple post for the morning that might bring a smile to your face and remind you of years past. It started with deciding what to cook after seeing Mom today. I didn’t want something heavy, or much at all for that fact, just something warm. A simple meal would suffice and then it hit me. It was last week already that I picked up a package of Alphabet Soup. I loved eating it as a child and haven’t had it in years. Today was the perfect day to enjoy it. As a child, I would try and arrange the letters, matching words that I knew back then. I got the biggest kick out of it and to this day, I’m easily amused. I remembered those times today and made the soup. While holding the jumbled up letters on my wooden stirring spoon, my mind wandered back into time. “What do you see little one” I asked, but left the letters mixed up. Perhaps it wasn’t clear what exactly it was that I wanted to spell. Maybe there is a message already hidden, and all I need to do, is to look closer.
I can see “GO” upside down. Anyone else seeing something?
