I sit on this rocking dock, on an August afternoon that feels like Fall.
Winds gently blow and create small waves rippling across the large lake.
White mountains loom in the background, reminding me of longevity, the eternal nature of all things.
I breathe in peace, exhale compassion for self and others.
I inhale love, light, I exhale peace for all.
I ride the gentle waves on the dock, shut my eyes, breathe. notice, and list.
Hot sun on a dry summer day
The beauty of nature, across all seasons
Moving my body through space
Hot creamy coffee (decaf), morning after morning
Cuddles anytime of day
Dancing the night away
My dear family and pets
My own moods and emotions
Caring for others
Writing and reading
Loss, grief, pain
“Hard” work and details
Illness, pain in myself and my family
The stress response
And so it is, is that so….
The list changes daily
So hum, so hum, so hum….
Despite it all Sat Nam, I am, So Hum.
