Right now, in this exact moment, I feel so good.
I have no idea if I will feel like this tomorrow-- or what 2011 will bring-- but I had to share this with you all because HELLO!-- who knew there were so many of you reading!? I am DELIGHTED to be making New Year's cards and sending them out to you all and must admit that I am beyond surprised to see your names popping up in my email box-- a total treat-- and definitely one most exciting component of this beautiful morning.
**FYI, I feel compelled to say to all of you who have already blessed me with cards and gifts no need to send me an email as you will definitely be receiving a card from me-- AND, to all of you who lovingly signed up for those NY's cards I, ahem, never sent oh-- I don't know-- in 2009? 2008? (I'm looking at you especially, Bella)-- I am going to make good. Pinky swear.**
But this MORNING-- oh, you guys! The sun is POURING in-- it is full out blue sky, blasting sunshine-- the snow sparkling and glittering. And then, I had totally forgotten about a wee prezzie I had gifted myself with to have the apartment cleaned while I was away so that I came home to a fresh clean space for the New Year. Well, the two fab women* showed up (surprised to see me, too) and their energy, plus the sunshine, plus god knows what--and I blasted on the office clean-up/purge that had been building since September.
(*NOTE: DOUBLE DIGRESSION AHEAD: I LOVE these women-- they leave me little notes about how much they love the apartment-- or today, one of them was missing that the dogs aren't here and telling me how much she loves Henry, sigh. Nothing like big, kind hearts to make me feel like the world is a good place to be-- which is really needed since I had Nazis chasing me in my dream last night-- awful, big round-up, inescapable like I used to have all the time and haven't in SOooo long, thank god-- but in the movie yesterday-- there were some clips of Hitler and the crowds and it clearly triggered my sub-conscious, blah. Movie wasn't great, btw. The popcorn, however, was superb!)
Yes, lo and behold I found the missing charger for RDC's walkie-talkie that had gotten buried in some tub full of fair guff. (Oops, sorry about that! Um, here you go-- allow me to return this to you, um 13 weeks later!) But I powered through ALL of it, June, September, by the sea-- and now everything is in super orgo order and man, so much easier to dance when there's floor space, you know?
And dancing I am--
I know I have rather the high/low energy flow. Either life feels fantastic or it is a biting sandstorm in the face-- but I can't seem to change that despite my best efforts. I feel things so intensely. I just do.
And right now? Bliss. Full on deep, sweet satisfaction and happiness.
May you know the same-- to your TOES. To your toes.
