The house is blessedly quiet after a raucous start to the day. What, you protest! How much noise can two empty nesters generate first thing in the morning?
When you’re really listening, the kitchen offers a cacophony of sounds to herald that break in the usual nocturnal fast. There’s the thud of cabinet doors and refrigerators closing; the clunk of pots and pans finding purpose; the click of gas burners igniting, the whir of mixers blending, the swish of coffee makers delivering a cup of joe; all conspire loudly, with my lover, to announce the morning meal.
Jimmy is indeed a blessing, as is the life we have together, the life I have within me, the life all around me. When I really listen to life, I learn to trust life, to live without fear of being loved, valued or challenged.
It’s deeply satisfying to feel such a reverence for life, for relationships. Wisdom comes with befriending life, with allowing life to flow through you rather than around you.
Whoa! That was deep.
Let’s dig out with a few Fun Fotos. No better way to celebrate life than with laughter. Okay, maybe just a few chuckles. Whatever!
