A Few Small Repairs...

Been trying to repair, replace, fix, update things around here.*

Everything is taking longer than expected.

I need to let go of my expectations and need for instant fixes.


Placing hand on heart, tucking in to the center, I inhale a deep swell of air, ribs expanding, then after a pause at the top, blow it all out and open my eyes. Looking around I am instantly transported to a lighter altitude, one of possibility. It's bright up here. Ideas come lightning fast.

How quickly I fall into fixing, of working out the details of physical manifestation. I am reminded of the frustrations (and slowness) of working in density. It rarely comes quickly. Or easily.

* Why is it things always fall apart in clusters? I went through this last year.  Must be going through another upgrade...

I love the image of putting your hand on your gut to center yourself. I love that you were able to take a break from the cycle of 'to-dos' and regroup.

Thanks for the reminder!

Sometimes we work with density because the exterior represents the interior.

Sometimes we do it because eventually, things simply must be fixed.

The cluster thing? No idea why, but I know it happens.

I hate the cluster effect.

In my experience the clusters happen so I'll pay attention - there's always a message somewhere. It sounds like you're listening. I hope you'll share when you hear.
