Faith means living with uncertainty — feeling your way through life, letting your heart guide you like a lantern in the dark.
~ Dan Millman
To live fully is to be always in no-man’s-land, to experience each moment as completely new and fresh.
I had to look at what day it is. I’m usually pretty good at keeping up, mostly because M goes to work and it’s easy to tell when the weekend arrives because, well, he doesn’t usually work on weekends. Plus there is a certain rhythm to his schedule. I have a certain rhythm to mine, as well. I do know it’s day 3 of our self-isolation, and we’re creating new rhythms to our days. For instance, there is a big art project going on outside. I will show it to you soon. I meant to take some before photos, but forgot in the busyness of making a video (Marco Polo) for the Wookie and Peanut who I think will enjoy watching it as we go along.
Now that I think about it, I might have some before shots somewhere in my files. It’s something we found on the property that we’re turning into our own silly work of art. Something I think the boys will like. I will have a look and see what I can find. Earlier today I was thinking about how I have so many photos I’ve never shared, mostly because time moves quicker than I can and by the time I get around to the photos I took from the last hike, a week or two or more have gone by and I have new photos from a new walk or hike or travels to share.
I went out this morning for my first bicycle ride of the year. It was a short (a little over 2 miles) but wonderful ride. My bike could use a tune-up. That will probably have to wait. We’ll see.
The exercise was great, but what made it so wonderful was getting off the property and out into the world where I could, safely, wave at people who were fishing on the bridge or passing by in their cars or out in their yards. It’s windy today. The wind resistance made the ride a good workout. We also saw the sun for a little while, always a bonus.
Well, this day is somehow flying by pretty quickly and I have a few things I want to do before evening rolls around. I’ve been cleaning up the flower garden, getting it ready for planting. It’s good work, weeding and digging around. The planning, too, is good work.
Thank you for visiting with me today. I’ve been slowly getting caught up. Some of my WordPress issues are still issues (I’ve cleared the browser history, etc.), but I’m finding that I can comment now (although it usually requires signing in every time). Thank you, too, for all your comments and suggestions yesterday. I’ll be back to respond soon. Let’s meet on the dock for sunset this evening. I don’t think we’re going to see much, but you never know. Sunset is scheduled for 7:15 PM. It’s warm. 80°F. You won’t need a jacket.
Be good, be kind, be love. And please, be safe and well. ♥♥♥
A few of the 10,000 reasons to be happy: 1,271) Riding my bicycle. 1,272) Reminders that there are still ways to connect with a wave, a nod of the head, a hello, and some small talk. 1,273) Working on silly art projects. 1,274) Keeping the boys guessing. They are having fun trying to figure out what Gramps and MoMo are making. 1,275) Grilled veggie burgers and potato salad for lunch. Yum.
