Awakening a Keen Observer

Monday, July 28, 2014

      I had to wait to pick up my prescription this afternoon and was gifted with a rainbow.   The dark clouds were, and often are, the perfect background.  It was at first faint but darkened beautifully oh Roy g Biv you are pure delight
  Here Meredith for your birthday

Happy to have waited
Or I would have missed it...eyes open will surprise you

A pause to refresh

Grace abound
Monday musing
   The monsoon rains wet the earth...
     The earth reaches eager arms aloft to receive the blessing.
      Ah it comes 
      Yes, there will be another day
         Deep sigh 

It is unusual to have cloudy morning in New Mexico.  So unusual I comment.  "Funnily" enough it may well be full sunny by the time I finish writing.

The usual monday routine here at eagle point apts is lawn mowing.  All well and good but before 8 seems early to have roaring outside my apartment.  I'm awake and have been for several hours.  Monday brings reflection.  I get a note from a friend of my daughters bringing me joy.  She tells me other, from my past, miss me.  How sweet.  Good way to start the week.

My puppy,(ok she's 5, but I still call her puppy) sits on my feet.  Apparently I'm to sit here a bit longer.  Why would you be so selfish to move a sleeping pup.

It is the present that absorbs my thoughts.  To-do/shoulda-woulda/coulda lists can wait for a while.
Now is...( good bumper sticker line).
Ha! Joy

I am reading a book on guilt. Excellent thoughts.  I could only finish the first chapter. Processing that now. Will comment on it soon and keep reading.
