Oh. Did you feel that?
Everything just shifted. Ahhhhhh. Yes, the past weeks have been all about laying low, nurturing, yummy long talks with friends and then, boom! Yesterday, just about midday I felt a great upswing of energy and light and wow--- my seemingly endless crossing of the ocean has an end in sight.
Henry: and this affects me how?
Okay, so perhaps it is imperceptible to the outside world, but I felt it. The brightness is growing, the lightness is expanding, and I am doused in gratitude.
Behold my truly lousy photo of my newest love: the sweet jasmine plant. When I bought it the florist offered to trim off its long reaching arm and I swatted her clippers away. I love that crazy, dangling, reaching, stretching limb. Love.
And, that's my 8-second update. I feel so good.
