I cannot remember being as indolent as I have been this summer. One minute I wonder if it is aging that makes me feel like I am in a murky hole of incomplete thinking, and the next, I am certain it is just from inactivity. Whatever the cause, I have begun to jolt myself back to awareness. The early Fall is bringing me some lovely pleasures, a reunion with a dear childhood friend, a trip with LM to visit my sister in Canada, and a stop along the way to tour the 1000 Islands area of NY.
Another wake-up call has come in the form of a shake-up at work! I have a lovely new co-worker I am helping to acclimate.
Over the last several years I have done a lot of excess worrying about my future, especially about where I will live when I cannot work. I hear myself much too often,saying that I am not wanting to live much longer, that I am "ready to go," etc. A new effort is under way to embrace life, search for some new adventures, open up my world a bit, and feel more than I have allowed of late. I am unsure how to proceed with this major project. My goal is to be more aware of what is available around me, to engage those I meet more deeply, by listening, and daring.
There is not much happening on Ms G's part, unless, you deem sleeping 22 hrs a day to be a daring act.
I'll be back soon, and I leave you with this spectacular mixed pot that greeted me at the dentist this week. The huge coleus was truly aamazing and stopped me in my tracks for a moment to admire its loveliness.
