One thing I know for sure about this whole 'posting 30 days in a row' project: you're gonna see pretty quickly (if you didn't know this already) that my life is dialed down to the simplest things.
I live a very simple life.
And yet, even as I write this, I know that the less I do, the less busy I am, the slower I go -- and oh dear lord do I put the LO in slow -- the more worlds upon worlds open up to me; the moment that I am in expands more deeply. It makes no sense at all.
I was talking with Sarah the other day and we were puzzling over this very thing.
How does this work? And by work, I mean-- how does it work this way?
Why isn't the opposite true?
Yesterday, Daisy and I drove out to Warren -- a little town just past the beach where I have always taken the dogs for a walk. There really wasn't much to this outing --- we'd been to the beach hundreds of times before and all I was planning on doing was nooking about a bit in Warrren which I have only just discovered.
Simple, you know?
the path to the beach
I really don't know what to say. Simple. Not simple.
The light. The colors. The feeling.
It was so warm I was in a t-shirt, jeans and sneakers.
Daisy went for a full body swim.
It was poetry.
As we walked about, the sky shifted and more colors popped up. The seaweed was so green it looked like a grass edging to the surf and the clouds just went crazytown.
Once Daisy was thoroughly waterlogged and sure to fill the car with the aroma of wet dog, we headed to Warren.
It's about a five minute drive from the beach and you have to go over a little bridge to get there. Fun facts: former home of the original Samsonite factory; first location of Brown University.
Houses were built in the late 1700s and the streets are super narrow. As a result, most run one-way which makes navigation a bit twisty. And oh yeah, the trees are mega old.
Okay. My 20 minutes here are up. More tomorrow . . maybe I'll tell you about my adventures in real estate hunting or my thoughts about the beauty of woodstoves. Hard to know-- just gonna show up and spill whatever's on my mind -- talk to you then.
Oh, and be sure to do some intention setting today!! Light a candle, take a few moments to get clear about what you want to release and what you want to call in.
Super powerful new moon + solar eclipse.
