In some ways it is difficult letting go of summer and moving into another season, but isn't that like life, letting go of one season of your life and embracing the "new" season. Tonight I brought out candles and transformed my family room into a silent retreat, except for the occasional snoring from my dog. The " new season" of my life seems to be about quiet...both in my mind and in my life. Yoga has helped immensely with this realization. I feel like my yoga practice has reached a different, deeper level than ever before. Yoga has become almost hypnotic. Each movement and breath has become a single a source of mediation in quiet. I feel like my mind and body are really clearing out old stuff making room for my creative side. I am finding I enjoy writing again.
Anyway tonight one of the reasons I enjoy where I live is the air is so moist, I can hear the barking seals in the sound and watch the sunset in the harbor.
I also thought of another way for my students to expand their writing skills and go into more depth.
Another thought I had was how much I enjoy the earth under my feet. I am always cutting across the lawn maybe that is the reason why I do that.
I also miss the water under my feet its not the same as the earth and that is probably why I like it.
I love walking at night. It's quiet, and private. The air always smells great depending on the season.
