I am still absorbing the pleasure of my home. To reconnect I've been cleaning my studio/spare bedroom. Dusting off my shelves and touching my favorite objects, it is grounding me and helping me reconnect. I felt rather torn from my roots these past 10 days. But it was good for me to be taken out of my comfort zone and shaken up a little bit. It reinforced in me a desire for a life of peace and calm, it made me realize just how important that has become to me. It helped me realize that I have grown and that the growth is not just a temporary thing, but can hold up in adverse conditions. Life in the present is important to me. Taking time to pause and meditate are things I'm trying to learn. I learned this past week how much this has become a part of me and isn't just wishful thinking. There is still so much to learn, life is always throwing curve balls. Like the fact that I have to go to work in the morning and I would rather stay at home and play!
