Time has been tight for me lately. I know, what’s new right? Well I’m not just complaining this time. I’ve made some changes that are going to allow me to do the work and fun which I most desire. I’ve really missed many of my greatest pleasures.
Next week I’m going away for the week to visit a dear friend and get a bit of r+r. When I return, so too will balance in my life. Feeling a bit desperate really.
There are two kinds of tired, the one where you are savouring life and the other where you’re on the verge of burnout. So I guess it’s obvious which one I’m at. Other than that, life is pretty wonderful…family, friends, health, and work are all well. But no one is going to take care of me for me. Seems a perfect time to stop, rest, and start anew.
The pictures above are from earlier in the week, taken from the cockpit of the plane when returning home from a day in town. I posted them on my Facebook page with the following message:
‘While flying home today I looked out the window of the cockpit and all I could think was ‘heaven’. It was so beautiful to observe the low lying clouds sandwiched between the magnificent blue sky above and dull grayness beneath. Bright sunbeams were streaming through as though angels were sending a message to not worry, for during the flight the winds were so strong that the plane jerked about. The eight minute flight seemed much longer and I felt a bit nervous.’
Ya, nervous like thoughts of crashing crossed my mind. I quickly dismissed them and relaxed, though it was hard to avoid them completely sitting beside the pilot up front and all. I could nearly feel the wind in my face. Seriously. Anyway, I lived to tell the tale and to give myself a good slap to stop whinging about my schedule and all and just figure it out already. Facebook is not the place to open up so much, oddly enough because most people there I know to see, where as here I don’t but here it is safer, more caring and personal. So please understand my recent absence and know I miss you all very much. I will post my haiku and photo for this week before I head off on my mini vacation and then I’ll be off the grid until next weekend. Woo hoo! Looking forward to my return to me, refreshed and ready to create once again.
