Here we are...

Just off the Port Bow—a place of uncertainty, adventure, and insight. Thank you for your ears, eyes and hearts. I hope to bring compassion, grace and beauty to your day.

Up or Down?

Do these stairs seem to be leading down into a scruffy late March yard, or leading uncertainly up to a rough cut and paint peeled somewhere? Either interpretation works. Reality and Reality.

My last post in this blog was filled with butterflies and colorful magic…a visit with a granddaughter to Magic Wings in Deerfield last Winter. I am currently reading a Charles Williams novel entitled The Place of the Lion, and just passed a scene with a veritable and unbelievable murmuration of butterflies. That’s not my current feeling, but it is a vision I can hold surely and lightly in my mind and soul.

I don’t want this post to be too long. Just the simple basics. I spend my time these days in…

Weekly therapy sessions,
Ongoing recovery work in ACA (Adult Children of Alcoholics/Dysfunctional Families),
Enough website work to keep me honest, honed and interested,
Reading (currently Charles Williams and C.S. Lewis),
Getting inspired by Sam the Cooking Guy videos,
Totally digging the show Shtisel on Netflix,
Spending lots of quiet time with Mary,
Finishing up our tax preparation,
Meeting as often as I can with friends who keep me honest, connected and sane
Meditating (including a small sangha at Williams College),
Working on my 50th High School reunion coming up this June,
Purging THINGS and STUFF from our house that we haven’t touched in 5 or more years,
and…

That feels like about as much reporting as I want to do at the moment. Maybe this shot below reflects more accurately how I feel…YES, I like it!
