As I walked onto the blank page of my new chapter, away from computers but with my journal and pen in hand. I wrote this yesterday. Won’t you join me…..
Tuesday, January 8th 1:50 pm.
I’m on the couch at my daughter and son-in-laws house. A three-year old yellow lab curled up in the opposite corner from where I sit – breathing squeakily through his nostrils in relaxed dog breaths. The tiger cat stretched out on the back of the couch like the king of the house he thinks he is (but only when the dog is sleeping). Baby Ray is sacked out in his swing - click/click click/click. The whirring sound of the humidifier softens the buzz of traffic outside. A crow caws from a tree in the distance as both the animals lift their heads; intrigued but not enough to actually move anywhere. The t.v. is on but muted. In this silence I ponder how I got here from where I once was. Silence was something to be escaped, something to drive noise into, not something to enter into and feel its embrace and be okay inside of its arms. I feel alive. Content. Fulfilled. At rest. I am surrounded by life. It is good.
