me, as a kid
Turms out I didn't hit the road yesterday morning.
Which is all fine, except I feel so bad for disappointing my sister-- am a Thanksgiving tease, apparently-- and I really will miss that soft pretzel.
The weirdest part is how hard it is for me to switch gears, allow plans to change and simply flow with it. Like, really hard. My rising sign is Pisces which is water - fish- flow and ease. And yet, I'm still working on developing that approach to life. This little hiccup is such a clear example for me.
I am watching myself and all the contortions (soft pretzel anyone?) I go through in resistance to what is.
What happened was that yesterday morning I woke up and my body was not going to be happy in the driver's seat of a car for the 10 hour round trip as I popped something in my lower back (probably from all the running I have been doing). I made the right choice to stay home. And, I am super happy to be home.
And yet, there was all this forward momentum-- all my thoughts and plans that were already way ahead of me, hanging with my family, being in Philadelphia, etc. It's taking a bit to simply let go and be HERE now.
Does this ever happen to you?

One of the hanging elements that I have to close out and take in another direction is that I had started a playlist for the drive. It's what I'm listening to as I type to you. Turns out, it's good for the road and for blogging.
Link is here if you want to take a listen, too: First HOUR of my playlist.
Oh, and I totally didn't blog yesterday. Glad you didn't notice. Maybe I'll double it up sometime this weekend. Maybe not.
Mostly I am looking forward to taking it easy. Sinking into books. Dabble at some house projects I never seem to get around to.
Tomorrow will see an impromptu Thanksgiving gathering here. More on that as details come into view.
I do think what's going on with me right now is to have NO PLANS.
Make no plans.
That seems to be my marching orders of late. It's all part of the mist and mystery that I seem to be moving through. Sort of like I am cosmically blindfolded and the universe is trying to make me learn to use my intuition the way I currently use my other five senses.
Yes, I am having my Luke Skywalker moment where I finally learn to use the force, baby.
