“I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape-the loneliness of it-the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it-the whole story doesn’t show.” ~ Andrew Wyeth
“Enjoy your body, use it every way you can. Don’t be afraid of it, or what other people think of it. It’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever own.” – Kurt Vonnegut
I saw three friends who I haven't seen face-to-face in fifteen years today! They are such sweet people. They flew in from Los Angeles and are going to Sedona for some healing work. These last two very intense (and dark for me) years have taught me that my friends are so important. And of course, because I was going through a dark time, I isolated, so I barely saw anyone. Now that I am beginning to feel better, I am making an effort to see people - and oh yeah(!) - it feels great to see my friends!
Tonight, I have been observing where my mind goes. Just because I am nervous and can imagine a lot of scary things doesn't mean I won't go. I choose not to live in fear. I have so much gratitude to people all around the world standing up for me, despite their own fears.
Utah was not a place for me, not even for a week and a half. Even my this-will-be-an-interesting-experience adventure self said, "Run, Lady! Run!" And I didn't run fast enough! I said to myself, "Ok, give notice and stay 'til the end of the month," but the powers that be had other plans and I met head-on with the town patriarch via my little gray Taurus and his 65 Chevy pick-em-up truck when he came barreling around a corner on the wrong side of the road.
