Well folks, here we are in October and I’m still poking through the cupboards, looking behind the door, and checking my pockets to see where I managed to lose September. Where did it go? I dunno. Ah well, on with the show.
We’ve had some beautiful weather recently, the cool crisp kind that I love. We were walking the dogs in the hills the others day, sun shining, wind blowing, white caps on the bay dancing merrily, and the gulls’ lonely calls. That’s when I did one of those time shifts we old folks do.
Suddenly I was ten years old again, walking the endless and empty beaches of my youth, the wind in my hair and the sun warm on my shoulders. I felt again the vastness of the universe and the timelessness of that single moment of true bliss, that purest joy in being alive. The care, worry, and stress disappeared and so did my arthritis, at least for a time.
The spell was broken by a Labrador who wanted to play stick, but I didn’t mind. I was just soul deep grateful to be alive to experience that moment. As I often say, “Life is good!”
Yes! I did it this time. I reached my goal of 15,000 words this week. Now to do it again. I also managed to check in on a few blogs and say hello. Not as many as I’d like, but I managed some.
Be sure to sign up for my newsletter; there’ll be more good stuff there from upcoming books and life around the island. The link is at the top of the page. Just click on my smiling face and away we go.
Now it’s your turn; drop me a line to let me know how you’re making out. I love to hear from you all.
