Evening as I breathe
In the stillness of solitude
Today was a beautiful October day here on the west coast of Florida. We awoke to temperatures in the 60’s for the first time in 6 months. We went outside fairly early so we could get the lawn mowed and the trimming finished before the heat rose to its normal highs. Then made a Sam’s club run. Besides doing laundry, etc. We stopped by our neighbor’s BBQ stand that he has in the yard of a friend, and bought a couple of smoked chicken dinners. And now, I sit out on my deck. I needed 15 minutes to myself, to regroup. I found a 15 minute mindfulness meditation that was just what I needed. The day is melting into night, the trees are silhouettes against a rosy blue sky. My partner, my love comes to join me and now I go, to take some time to dream.
