Meditating on nothing. And the rain.

I’ve been seeking alone time more lately.  I just want to clear my head.  Meditate.  Concentrate.

 

I just want to appreciate my imperfect, blessed life.  Find some discipline in there somewhere.  And a bit of direction while I’m at it would be golden.

 

So I sit.  And I watch the rain.

 

 

I admire once nearly dead houseplants.

 

 

And find the beauty in left behind pool toys.

 

 

I look past abandoned bathing suits.

 

 

Sit on a ledge much too small for my much too large butt.

 

 

Ignore the puppy scratched door.

 

 

And eat a rully healthy dinner.  On rully sustainable dishware.

 

 

And I just sit.  And listen.  And I try not to think about anything.

 

Try to just … absorb.

 

Of course, someone comes out to ask for Blues Clues, and a drink, and some food, and to ask if they can play on the computer, and to complain about their brother.

 

But that’s okay, I guess.

 

At least there’s still the rain.

  1. Loving this rain, too! It just puts a mellow vibe out there. It’s time to take a break from all the sunshiny actions summer inevitably brings about and just stay indoors and chill!

    My butt is having the same problem as yours. If you figure out a way to remedy the situation that doesn’t involve exercise…please advise ;)

  3. Ahhhh, rain. I am jealous. It has been 3-4 weeks and all we’ve had was one ten minute shower.

    I miss chatting with you. To quote the Grateful Dead, “I feel like a stranger”. Hope you’re doing well!
