A Vacation in the Moment

Breathing without thinking about breathing.
And yet, aware of each breath.
Grateful for each breath.

Sun rising without thinking about rising.
And yet, I lean into the horizon with anticipation and awe.
Grateful for the day.

Moment birthing and dying into the seed of the next moment.
Reborn within itself.
Grateful for the chance.

I am breathing.
I am rising.
I am birthing.
I am grateful for the chance.

Potions, Lotions, Magic Charms: Slowly . . . slowly. Do things slower today. Drive a little slower today. The Earth is rotating at a speed of 1,000 miles an hour and moving around the sun at a speed of 67,000 miles an hour . . . so take a day to enjoy the ride.

This I now know: Moments don't wait for cameras or pens for recognition - most moments pass quickly by, unnoticed, unappreciated and underestimated.

He Said / She Said: A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song. Maya Angelou.

Lovely poem and pictures, Lindy! I know what you mean about moments passing by -- I like what Einstein said about either everything being a miracle or nothing being one -- I'm trying to think that everything is one! And the Maya A. quote is great.

What a marvelous blog you have. Reading it was like learning that Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Sylvia Plaith had, despite the obstacles of time and distance, produced a child born with the talent to surpass them both.

"I am breathing.
I am rising.
I am birthing.
I am grateful for the chance."

And this is what the meaning of life is and will always be, something simple and yet infinitely complex.
