Been waking up later.
Stretching in peace
after everyone else has disappeared. 
Sleeping sounder at night,
feeling more restful in the day. 
 I put the coffee on the stove,
quietly begin the day's work,
exercise in between,
then carry on. 
Today, a happy jumble in the kitchen
after last night's independence day get-together. 
A fridge full of leftovers,
and a heart warm with the afterglow
of friends who mean so much. 

Sometimes I don't quite know what to write here,
but I do want to share something,
glimpses even. 
Something of the thankfulness 
for this time of life. 
For learning to trust in the small steps. 
I've nudged a wish this autumn
for a workspace
shared with others,
and a chance conversation
a couple of weeks ago
got my hopes up
in the best possible way.
More of that later,
if it materialises...

All I can say is 
I've been blown away
by the generosity of people recently,
by a genuine desire to make others happy,
Friendships that by now have become so solid.
A relationship with my husband
that can go through tricky patches,
but always returns to a clearing
bathed in light & peace.  
I think I've learned this recently
- sometimes giving space,
letting go even,
can bring a huge blessing in return
when the time is right.

  1. Learning to trust in the small steps ❤ That sounds good ❤

    1. What it's all about in the end I think...
      each small step of the journey,
      wherever it will lead in the end.

    1. Thank you dear Miss hiirit for your precious words,
      they mean a lot...
      I feel so strongly that we need to concentrate
      on the good & the kind
      in this day and age especially -
      let's keep doing just that,
      and so happy if you think
      some of that can be found here.
      Wishing you a beautiful, peaceful Christmas time.

    2. Thank you Rebecca ⭐️ Miss hiirit


It makes me happy
when you leave a trace

- whether it's a single word
or you scribble all over.
