Rain almost stops
so I head to the Cracker Barrel
and lately their food is really good.
Half way it starts raining really hard
have not driven in the rain in several years
and I keep going with the thought
this good for me.
Child's plate of fish, cole slaw, turnip greens,
cornbread and a new offering which is so good
Large servings and I eat 1/2 and take the rest
home to warm and finish later in the day.
A lot of food for less then $10.00
As I drive
my mind continues,
in between the words "may I be happy, may I be safe, may I be well
and at peace and may I be filled with loving kindness"
this one experiences calmness with these words.
Thoughts begin to arise
so much from the past and I do not like their replay
then the present time arrives
don't talk health
don't talk weight
don't talk about pain
you are doing all you can
and I think you are amazing
a smile comes on my face....
A book has arrived "Natural History Of The Senses" by Diane Ackermandand I open at random and words about pain is on a few pages. Shares about medications, meditation,
just letting it be (don't focus on it) shares that pain is as much a emotional and psychological affliction
as a physical one. Enough shared and will read all of this book soon and probably
Also another book recently arrived "A Path With Heart" by Jack Kornfield.
Glanced through this book and will entirely soon and the habit of
underlining will continue
Paper work piled on desk and just do not feel like tackling
also a lot of ironing and this one always liked ironing on a rainy day
but not today.
Think I will just, relax like Callie who is now asleep by the door
and will finish my Blackberry Tea
an try and stop my mind...
