State of Being

Writing is not easy for me these days. I start, stop, stare into space, and try to let the words flow as they have in the past. I seem to meet a blank wall. Nothing is cohesive. I am finding some comfort in meditation, routine, knitting simple facecloths, listening to the incessant rain, talking to my siblings and LM, and holding Ms G close. She knows and complies.
Permission from my soul to just be right now has been granted. Apologies to all and when the sun shines on Chatham once more, perhaps there will be some lovely garden photographs revealing the rewards of all this rain.

You have been through a lot in the last 6 months, and then this weather does not help AT ALL!
Take the time you need, and hold that kitty tight.

Sometimes the best thing is to sit quietly and listen......to the rain....to your soul....to the peacefulness around....to the sound of total silence...to the wonderful purr. Your written voice will return when it has rested. Be at peace.

I know today, Father's Day, is going to be especially hard for you. Hopefully you can sit quietly and remember all the good and fun times you both shared together and that some of the memories can put a smile in your heart and on your face. That is what I am doing today...debbie

Thank you Julie, Jeff and Debbie...you are all so thoughtful to leave such comforting comments on my constant state of gloom lately. They bring a much needed light to the days.
