This weekend my legs walked through the forest and and my chin was held high in greetings to the sun. Jay and I welcomed friends to our camp fire, with food in our bellies and hugs of appreciation for our community. We swam in the cold lake and relished the coolness against our warm skin. We gazed at the stars, twinkling through the night. They are always there, but how easily we forget. They are magic in their way of reminding us how small we are and how big the universe is.
We also worked on the white house which is coming along most wonderfully. All I can feel for mother nature, my community, and my life is gratitude and a joy for life. Everyday I must look around, and soak in the world that surrounds me. Everyday is special as it will never come around again. Everyday I am a little older and little wiser and a little closer to whatever comes after this human experience. This might sound morbid but alas it is a thought that comes to me as I continue into my 40's. Everyday, every breath must be appreciated and felt in my entire being.
I hope you are enjoying the sun rays. Keep smiling :)
