The back is better. I'm moving slowly, but I'm moving. Thanks for the support.
Today is a tough day for a back ache, for feeling my age. Because today, I add a year, complete another circuit of the sun, begin again with new numbers. Today, of all days, I didn't need to feel older.
But, aging is the only way to live.
There is, for me, much for which to be grateful. I know, I keep saying that, but it's true. And, it keeps me focused on all the good stuff that is there for me. Still, all kinds of feelings rush in. I'm trying to practice how to welcome them and let them go. Not welcoming the yuk stuff, just the feelings of frustration, anger, hurt, confusion, or helplessness that comes with them.
Letting go is such an important part of life. Not just saying goodbye, or living with constant grief, but setting free ourselves from stuff that may weigh us down.
The leaves have changed. This picture doesn't begin to convey it.
I live in one of the most beautiful places on earth.
