I am writing from the walk in clinic, where I am accompanying someone I love. We are not considered “urgent” and so we might be here for a while.
Looking around, I see so many variations on the theme of what can go sideways with our bodies. I feel some angst in the air, too. Some helplessness.
It’s the day after Christmas, two days away from my birthday and almost at the revolving door that will take us into a new year.
It has been such a big one for me and for many others. A year of lessons, of stretching, of getting better acquainted with our hearts and with ourselves
I feel the need to list the things I have learned in the past twelve months. There is something about letting things move from our minds towards the paper - or the keyboard - that anchors them, makes them somehow more substantial and better partners for a conversation.
I will start and see what shows up.
Life is rich and being its student is not much of an option. I do feel that showing up for class with our pencil sharpened and our minds and hearts ready to learn just makes it more exciting.
Today, I invite you to write your own list. Just like I did I suggest you allow it to be in no particular order of importance or chronology.
And I wish you a loving and rich New Year - away from the walk in clinic if you can.
