It’s amazing what a little “near death” experience does for your perspective!
It sure makes you pause.
Let the love in.
It sure makes some things seem really important
and other things, just plain silly.
It sure does slow you down.
And speed you up.
It sure makes a soul absolutely grateful for each day
and utterly determined to live with more joy every second.
And, is it my imagination, or does the changing season seem more colorful this year?
Does the last sweet drench of monsoon seem more precious?
Is there more time for lollygagging: lounging, lingering, loafing?
Do the days seem richer, deeper, and more soul-full?
Is there more time to bask, to read, to nap…?
I’m learning to lollygag,
to take it all in,
slowly and with more grateful
Autumn is my season–both in life and in heart.
This year I am celebrating it with absolute gusto
and an enormously enriched appreciation.
I am glad to be here…
despite the Shakespearian circus of politics,
and the dire state of man & beast,
I am happy to be here.
Thank you for joining me on the journey.
Life is beautiful
and full of adventures
fill your heart,
and your life
with love and gratitude.
