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.
