Who'll Stop The Rain?

I need some sunshine!!! It's bringing me down - all this rain - everyday for a week now. I started my flower seeds and I am afraid that they got over-soaked. I have to accept that my new location is three weeks behind in warm weather and spring bursting versus the mid-atlantic. But I need some sun! I want to sit outside and listen to the sounds of spring! A good lesson in patience here, I suppose. Ready for renewal.

Spending Time Looking At The Stars

A seemingly mindless activity - looking up at the stars and listening to the night sounds. For me right now, that is what it is meant to be: mindless. I have spent so much time over the past few months with myself and the ego/mind voice that stirs up all my past successes, mistakes, regrets, memories and anxiety for the future, that I am seeking stillness and wonder instead. Mental silence. Stargazing has always been an attraction for me though I can't name one star, planet or constellation. Even when I think I see the big dipper, I can't be sure! Stillness will hopefully generate internal energy and renewal of spirit. I need that. Life just is - and it is time to get control of my mind, body and spirit. Spring has the power to renew life and I'm taking full advantage of it. I have caring and generous friends who have gently fed me some reality doses about who I am and what I need to be doing. It is all good. Very good.
