A friend came to visit this morning. We shared and covered many subjects. We had fruit tea and deserts that I had on hand.
She brought me something special - maps on Thailand, Asia and Malaysia. These will help me follow my son on his activities in these areas that are so very unfamiliar to his mom.
Also sharing her book by Sylvia Boorstein "Pay Attention, For Goodness Sake."
This time made me so aware that there is just no one else near where I live that is interested in many of the things that I am. I am very thankful for this special time and her friendship is like an unexpected gift to me.
As she was leaving and looking at my garden - a butterfly landed on her shoulder. I did not have my camera and it would have been great to capture this image.
I wonder if this had a special meaning? I choose to believe that it was a good luck omen.
It is not necessary that you leave the house. Remain at your table and listen. Do not even listen, only wait. Do not even wait, be wholly still and alone. The world will present itself to you for its unmasking, it can do no other, in ecstasy it will writher at your feet.
