My 2nd Letter to You
Hello my friend,
How was the start to the week? Did you write a list to start out with good intentions or just wing it? I am sure that you’re doing your best and that’s really all that matters.
I have been trying to live more mindfully and in peace. It is hard when I see so many injustices and if I focus on them too much I get depressed and angry. I don’t like being in that space, so I have chosen to be quiet as I cannot learn for other people. We must come to that awareness when we are ready. Some people are never ready. Some, were born ready.
A friend of mine told me he had a date with himself on the weekend. I like that idea. What would your date with yourself be?
I would go to a cafe and eat a breakfast that I would never make for myself and read a book. Reading while eating is so insolent and indulgent and I love doing it!
Then I would walk on the beach, or take a dip in the water if it was warm enough. I like to float and watch the people on the sand.
Perhaps I would take a nap, or listen to music, or lie in silence in my house. I yearn for silence when I am alone. For me, silence recharges my soul.
Maybe I would read again in the evening, or write. Maybe I would meditate or clean, as I enjoy cleaning sometimes, when it’s on my own terms. I am such a Taurus sometimes.
Did I tell you I am growing Kiwi fruit? You need a male and female plant to bear fruit. It’s all very biblical, and the vines snake up in an Eden-esque manner. No fruit as yet, but I will be sure to bring you some should they decide to make whoopee and bring little hairy skinned babies into my garden.
I was thinking about how you should pick up that hobby you dropped again. I sense you are thinking about it more than you let on. Don’t worry if you think you won’t be any good at it now. Being good at something isn’t really the point, is it?
Perhaps think about trying your hand at it again. You don’t even have to tell me you started it. Just know I am supporting you from here.
