This moment



I've been quiet here this past week.  I'm not sure why.  I have lots of posts in the works.  I've started writing morning pages as part of The Artist's Way which I'm doing with a small group of friends.  The first few days it was easy to write, yesterday I couldn't do it if my life depended on it.  Today, I'm not ready yet to sit with pen and paper and write.  So here I am and there are so many things whirling around in my head that I want to share, but instead here is a list of things happening today and the rest of this week.

I have a kick-my-butt TRX class to go to in an hour.  I have laundry to do and a house to straighten up.  The lovely Mccabe will arriving on my doorstep this evening and I'm so excited to get to spend some time with her...just the two of us.  Then Jolie joins us Tuesday afternoon.  I got to meet Jolie in person last night after months of just seeing her on Facebook.  She is so lovely and I'm looking forward to spending more time together.  I also got to meet her husband Chris as he was talking about his book The Art of Noncomformity in Durham.  If you haven't checked out his book or his website, click here...its worth reading.

Wednesday we head to the Outer Banks for Squam by the Sea where I get to see so many friends I haven't seen in over a year and others I got to see just last month in NH.  I haven't been to the ocean in a couple of months and I always feel so at peace when I smell that ocean air.  While by the sea, there will be another full moon.  To smell and hear the ocean while feeling the pull of the full moon, surrounded by such beautiful souls...I can't think of anything more amazing.

There are so many wonderful things coming my way, in addition to all of those I've listed above, that sometimes I find it hard to stay in the moment.  Every day, I make sure to take a moment to feel grateful for this life I have.  I look around and see what is around me.  Because while I have a lot of exciting things planned over the next month(s), there is so much good in this.very.moment.
