Yesterday, I read Amanda's post and felt such a gust of YES rush out my lungs. And then I read Stephanie's post and again, felt the release of the pinched energy that is not a complaint-- not a whine, but just the exodus of energy that seems to have gotten all my wires twisted and sparking.
Is there something in the air?
I know some people felt a rumble of earthquake yesterday-- but I feel this is more planetary. Just those annoyances that can litter your path and make you feel like you are walking across sharp little rocks in bare feet-- ow ow ow.
Time to put my shoes back on, obvs- but before I do, I am going to indulge in a soulemama inspired list modulated with a yarnharlot's conscious lack of complaint.
1. Despite some repair this weekend (thanks Dave!)-- my camera is still not functioning and a trip to the camera doctor is still in order.
2. At the park this morning, the people were tight with their dogs on leads-- that kind of fearful, uptight dog owner that makes everything very unfun-- so me and my unleashed darlings turned and walked the other way. No play for us today.
3. It is a spectacular morning-- beyond spectacular-- I took loads of photos and want to share this vibration with you, but am thwarted and that causes me to spin and curse and feel, um, you know-- thwarted. (Really can't improve upon that word-- that word pretty sums up the frustrated feeling).
4. Can't seem to figure out what my body needs-- I keep thinking I am listening and doing what it asks-- and yet, it still is not humming and singing like I know it can. I haven't even eaten yet today because I am so tired of feeding it what I think it wants only to find out that's not what it wanted at all.
5. Do I sound insane? Talking about my body as if it were a picky two-year old?
6. Daisy has a chronic ear infection that I can't seem to heal. Have tried everything-- it upsets me greatly to not be able to help her-- any dog owners out there with suggestions?
7. You know what's funny? Sometimes when you begin writing out a list of all the things that seem to be wonky in your life, you realize there really aren't that many and, that they are completely manageable-- that what you carry around in your head is mostly hot air.
8. Whooosh. Ahh, there was the release I was looking for.
9. I love ice cream with a fierce passion. Am wondering if my body feels the same way. We seem to have some difference of opinion on this matter.
10. I believe it is time for me to hit the mat and do some yoga-- if ever there is a cure for headcase fever-- it is yoga, gardening, walking around aimlessly with a camera in your hand. Seeing as numbers 2 and 3 are not available to me at this time, yoga it is.
Thanks for listening.
