here i am. morning woodland garden walk.
so good to be here in the morning when few people are about.
fall is here, but the days are still warm. it’s dark and cool when i leave the house for school. by november the days will become mild.
i’m being evaluated this year so i’m extra busy with paperwork and planning. bustling here and there.
my weekend walks feel a bit ecstatic. like sinking into a cocoon of quiet.
i’ve started to meditate. using the headspace app for the first 10 free sessions to get the basics, but after that i will use the unguided insight timer app. i’ve used it twice and like it very much. i set the gongs and bells to repeat every minute. very soothing. i like coming home from school and sitting out back for my daily meditation before checking email or doing anything else. i also like the ambient sounds of the insight app. if you have trouble sleeping it would be a great way to drift off to sleep.
i thought grounding myself in the here & now might be wise. since i’m constantly trying to escape.
but while we’re on the topic of escape, i did find a coastal cottage studio on some headlands up north for a december getaway.
looking forward to striding out onto the bluffs in the dawn light. right to the continents end. looking out to a wild sea. walking along its edge. there’s a little path i can take from the cottage. i’ll see a bit of ocean from the window.
but for now i am right here. in the thick of it. roiling glorious life.
i enjoyed this tour of arno & carlos’ norwegian garden, maybe you will too.
