I looked through blurry, sleepy eyes at the time on my cell phone. 6:38 a.m. I woke up two minutes before my alarm was set to go off, somehow I do that quite often.

Sleepy eyes

Sleepy eyes

I gave myself all of ten minutes to wash my face, brush my teeth, throw on some clothes and scurry out the door. As I began walking, images of the morning world emerging trickled into my brain. The slight chill in the morning air saw to it that by the time I reached the end of the first block I was fully in my senses. The thought of Petia walking on the trail to meet me put a spring into my step and a smile on my face.
As we recognized each other from a distance we began to smile and I wondered why so much time had passed since I had seen her. We exchanged greetings and big hugs. Ah, the warmth of a loving soul is such a special thing. We began an amazing journey along the beach-front trail on both the physical and the spiritual level. We filled each other in on some of what had happened since we had last seen each other. As we are both artists we also relished in the images that surrounded us and how we saw different things we would like to capture through painting or photography. What a wonderful morning.
We parted ways and I looked at the time…I had just enough time to make it home to make breakfast for my husband before he left for work. As I began to prepare the food an inner quiet came over me. I realized that there are many people that don’t understand what happened to me last year. Most of what happened is a very personal journey that cannot be easily expressed in words. So I guess the best summation I can offer is to say that I began a tremendous and sometimes tumultuous journey of inner work. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to be with my grandmother as she passed from this world. The experience is one that I will never forget and is a priceless part of my life.
New Direction

New Direction

My life has taken a new direction since that moment. The direction is still unfolding before my eyes like the most beautiful exotic flower I have ever seen or could possibly imagine. I am finally beginning to embrace this instead of fighting the process. Funny how when you embrace the change things seem to flow smoothly. Would I say I am a different person? That is complicated…in some ways yes, in some ways no. I am still me, but things are changing. Changing for the better.
So for those I have not seen in awhile, know that I am well. I hope you are well. I thank you for your patience as I have needed the distance to undergo this whole process. I also thank the new people I am meeting. I am grateful for all of you that are entering into my life. I feel so blessed. So with humble gratitude I thank all of you!
