During the night thoughts kept surfacing
that yesterday on trip to big city
it was not me.
Or rather a disappearing part at this time of life.
Also kept having guilt feelings of purchasing
the new wallet when the one I carry is like an old friend.
Really old, looks it and I may return that wallet.
The old one feels comforting in my hand.
The real me
wanders in the woods, digs in the dirt and mind
is continually filled with thoughts of nature, simplification,
family, healing and just plain thankfulness of life at this time.
It was kind of a fun adventure for a few hours,
like pretending dress up and going to a party.
Compliments are few and far between as we age
and some take me by surprise and never taken
seriously but do make me smile as I think others
sometimes see us differently then we really are
at the core of our being.
Sometime on this life journey I read that we
are 3 people - one the way other's view us,
one the way we think of our self and the real
person that we truly are. Guess we are a part
of all three.
The wonderful soup
upset my stomach during the night
as it was too spicy.
finds her cooking more appealing but every now and then
is given a gift of something really satisfying cooked by another one
and now from the very few eating out times
sometimes is given a new idea for her cooking.
Thanks to everyone who took my short trip to the big city
with me and read my simple thoughts.
You are always welcome to travel along....
safe and healthy travel wishes
going and returning
for my youngest
who leaves for Africa
in a few hours.....
