Tuesday Thoughts

Standard
There is such a beautiful freedom in tears
Permitting your heart, body, and mind to swell over the walls of others’ considerations
Sailing on the waves of bitterness, grief, insurmountable joy and fear
Being swept up in the currents of past, present, and the unseeable future
Does it ever catch you off guard when you whisper to yourself “Finally?”
We, as a people, sometimes ache for the salt water deluge which makes small rivers and streams down the contours of our face
Creates the quakes and shivers in the body, moving with an uninhibited freedom through our nerves, muscles and subconscious
It is in these disruptions we give ourselves permission to be.
To live in the here and now
To listen to the ghosts that haunt us
To lean into the dappled light that nurtures and powers us
Storms can come upon us suddenly or they can send messengers ahead to launch the warning sirens
Either way nature knows its limits
As each storm moves from place to place they always leave a serene hush over the landscape
A bright horizon filled with possibilities and new beginnings
A freedom you can only experience after the salt water has washed you clean

Marching To The Beat of My Own Drum

Standard

It has taking me a while to settle on a theme for the month of March, but by George!, I’ve finally found one. On the first of many picturesque March days to come this past Sunday, I realized that it was time to do something that I really liked and needed. Live theatre! There really is nothing like it, from the box office, to the anticipation before the curtain, to the performance itself, nothing gets my heart pumping like good theatre. Exiting Roundabout, where I had just seen “Little Children Dreaming of a Lesser God,” I realized that I’m giving myself permission to be a little selfish with my time this month. Going to plays, pampering myself, focusing on what is good for me in terms of spiritual, physical, emotional and professional well-being is a great way to close out winter and say “Hello” to cheery springtime weather.

I firmly decided to take a quick vacation down South, to spend time with my family, I’m going to start taking ballet classes again, do a little something fun with my look, and continue to focus on my faith and fitness. (Fierce February really got me into some good habits). I am excited to see what the next few weeks will bring and with the March thaw, I intend to continue my love of self, the city, and all of the adventures that await me down the road.
