Season of self-love…

It is cold today.  The kind of cold that reminds me of walks in northern Massachusetts on a windy autumn day.  It is that kind of cold.   My mind is filled with images of warmth:  blankets, fires, good books, family and friends.

I also have a cold today. It is not the worst one that I have had in recent memory.  It is enough, however, to cause my mind to feel sluggish, my fingers to ache, and my creativity to diminish.  Sometimes life is like that, right?

Sometimes life forces you to stay still.  Sometimes it reminds you that no matter what you think you ‘should’/’must’/’need to’ do, you can only do as much as you can do.  It reminds you to make decisions that take into account where, who, and what you are.  I am glad for this.

It is in these moments of pause that I remember that… You know what?  Physical and psychological hardship are experiences a part of the ebb and flow of life, and they are possible to overcome.  And what’s wonderful is that they can be easier to overcome when you acknowledge their presence in your life…

More importantly, they can be easier to overcome by allowing others to understand that this is your present experience, and furthermore…by allowing others to help you.  Well, I am off to play piano, write, study, work, and be with friends.  In other words, I am off to experience the rest of my life not just my illness.

Happy Weekend All!

Until next time!

Best,

D.

Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes,
Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Moments so dear.
Five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes
How do you measure, measure a year?In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights
In cups of coffee
In inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife.In five hundred twenty-five thousand
Six hundred minutes
How do you measure
A year in the life?

How about love?
How about love?
How about love? Measure in love

Seasons of love. Seasons of love
