love XII
In the aftermath of the tragedy
in Connecticut, it’s a time for cuddling
close with those we love. These two hounds,
Josh and Kara, were rescued by a dear friend.
When I visited her last Thursday and snapped this
on my iPhone, I knew it would end up here, but I had no
idea what would transpire the next morning and couldn’t
have imagined how vital its message would be…

adoring fans

Through my recovery including ten years of yoga, I’ve learned to appreciate my feet. Yes, they’re mine.
For so long, I disliked them, thought they were too big, was barely aware of how important they are—that they’re my foundation. Without them, now where would I be?
When I’m having a hard time staying present and need to relax, but have no time or energy for exercise, I flex them and stretch my toes out as far as they’ll go. Pulls me right back into myself…feels wonderful…

I’ve migrated more quickly than I thought from flowers
to loving beings in this new series …
but will be moving back and forth and in between
so keep a lookout for more Love.

Love II

penance
above
mere
Love

This is my second post in a series called Love that is
evolving through flowers.  As corny as it may sound,
Love is the key to any recovery starting with love of self.
And what could be closer to self than Nature.
So I’ve started with the beautiful blooms I’ve encountered.
I imagine it will progress in time, migrating to other living things.
So keep a lookout for at least one Love post per week.

Drift

slight shift
some space
bond broken
or just adrift

can’t detect
your neglect
or my nagging
intellect
