me a few minutes ago, canon digital rebel xt
i know i have been absent but life is goodness and i am sitting quietly with it right now.
i'm studying, photographing, discovering new melodies, browsing my friends new boutiques, making love, laughing until i have asthma, learning how to *uncook* raw foods, writing, reading a novel about witches and warlocks falling in love, preparing for my friends upcoming nuptials, getting blond highlights and more layers, blending smoothies with spinach, getting acupuncture, burning fertility incense, listening to Boho Boy play guitar, thinking of my french marmie and my german mom...today on mother's day.
i'm here. i am definitely present. in fact i feel so present that it is causing me to listen more closely to my body, my emotions, my dreams and i just feel quiet as i absorb it all.
perhaps it will all tumble out into words soon but for now, it is swirling within me. there is something about paying close attention and being quiet that goes hand in hand.
Buddhists teach us this "quietness".
