Three Thoughts for Today
1) I was really, I mean really, feeling heavy-hearted over something today, and not sure how or if I should do anything about it. (See my previous blog post.) And then I read some people's comments on another blog that I found exceptionally positive and powerful. They so eloquently, diplomatically, and intelligently debated the naysayers and haters that I felt they were speaking for me as well. And now I feel better. I am so glad that others can find their voice when I cannot.
2) A few of us have been feeling "off" at work, in a general state of unease. A mailroom discussion at the coffeepot yielded insight from a colleague: When the wind is blowing (literally) as much as it has been around here lately, it stirs up more than pollen and dust. It seems to stir up our thoughts and feelings, too. This is exactly the state I've been in, and yes, it has coincided with the wind gusts! Hmmmm...
3) The almost-full moon is absolutely gorgeous outside my back window this evening. Breathing in anger and fear, breathing out soothing, healing peace.
Wishing you a peaceful, relaxing evening.
