Feeling....oooh what a feeling!
Beautiful fall day...sun is out,not too cold. Decided it was a good day to finish the fall clean up and do some pruning. Best idea I could have had. The crisp air, the light wind, and the fall sun made me feel so alive. I realized that there are times when you feel the air touch your skin and it just sings with life. I love the wind and have always enjoyed sitting in it and walking in it (with my back to it of course). Today, I realized how wonderful it is to just be alive and to feel. The sensations I get when the sun shines on my face, the wind touches my arms, so often we are too busy to notice these things. What I realized was that it is those sensations that remind us that we are living, breathing, entities. Not to feel means that I am dead. That can mean the same thing emotionally. Not feeling angry, sad, or even just melencoly means that we are at some level no longer living. So today, although emotionally I may be a little dead, physically I am very much alive. So now I plan on working on the emotional side and going off to finish a beautiful knitted sweater I am making for myself. OOOOH what a lift that will be. So, no bus rides today people...you will all just have to walk!
