the speed of now









This weekend was a celebration of my arrival on earth, and we spent it enjoying all things earthly, in nature. We spent much of the weekend in and near the water, kayaking, swimming, picnicking. We watched a pair of baby deer nursing no more than 15 feet away, a sparrow hunting in the grass as we sat low nearby, drove out into the dunes at dusk, stayed outside well after dark in the warm night air. We talked about life, and time, and what’s really important – where my energy is at and where it needs to be. I felt like time moved slower. The days were full and nourishing.

A friend gave me a fun deck of insight cards, and I pulled one out while we sat chatting.

Thank you for the birthday wishes. You all are so kind. I had a really nice day yesterday. Mellow and easy, just like I needed. After lunch with my sister and a couple girlfriends, Steven and I worked in the garden late into the evening. The colors of the garden always look even richer in the evening light.

It was also a strangely emotional day for a girl who doesn’t tend to be emotional. What was most notable was the feeling of being loved by the people who care about me, and a welling up of realizations and feelings about the life I have carved out for myself. There are things that are going so right and there are things that need some work. When is that not the case for most anyone, right? But I guess the things that need work showed up quite a lot. The people in my life, whether they realize it or not, offer a clear and quiet (and sometimes not so quiet) mirror that shows me the things I might not see left unto myself. The day of one’s birth can be a powerful time to check in, in what ever way feels fit at the time. I didn’t even have to try this year!

Is there anything interesting your like to do on your birthday? When Steven and I were first together, I remember when his birthday came around one of the things he wanted to do was to lay on the earth and sense himself within the universe. We were in our backyard in a tiny little garden we had created. I did this with him and loved this simple act of getting in touch with myself amongst life, on this earth, as a sentient, energetic, living being.

(about the rose. That rose is the first to bloom this year. Hard to believe. A birthday rose! And a deerĀ  (we think) has already eaten it!)
