Attempted Distractions

Attempted Distractions

I refuse to buy into attempts, by means of intentionally orchestrated, false impressions to be distracted from my bliss.  The serene moments of quite are the best times to reflect and be grateful. Awareness best comes with mindfulness.                    Rene Best musician

Mornings – I Am Lucky and I Know It

Standard
Mornings – I Am Lucky and I Know It

Early morning stillness is my fondest companion.  I meditate in this quiet solitude and offer my prayers of gratitude for the many blessings with which I have been bestowed.  It is the time I most intensely reflect on things such as a recent loss reversed and blissful, unexpected good fortune.  It is when I surround myself with the soft light that filters in through the leaves and the bamboo shades and feel the cool breeze wafting in through the windows.  I am lucky and I know it.

Our home is modest, but very pretty.  It is orderly and smells wonderful….a cross between baked goods and hand-crafted incense or fresh lavender.  We have pretty furniture…sort of a clean, Japanese, mid-century modern “hip” look, the centerpiece of which is our Noguchi coffee table that sits in the middle of the living room as a contemporary sculpture.  Everything is simple.

Order makes me happy, so quickly and quietly putting things in order during the early morning is something I enjoy very much. Today is a beautiful day.  I am happy, thankful and look forward to seeing how the rest of the busy day unfolds.  Ingrid is on her way to us now.  I must edit an article before she gets here and get my guitar lesson out of the way.  I feel good.

I am happy.  I feel good about virtually everything.  Life is good.  I am thankful.  Love causes one to see things through rose colored glasses….and my world is looking particularly rosy today.
