Today I am..
Seeing..my new cookbook (The Pure Joy of Monastery Cooking) and a very clear line between the space I cleaned well today, and everywhere else in the house. Yes, it is that obvious.
Smelling.. oranges, and tea tree oil (from the clean spaces). I love them both.
Tasting..can you guess? Orange. But earlier today I tasted perfectly done soft-boiled egg and yogurt with sliced peaches and ground flax..later I'll be tasting enchiladas and a big escarole and hard-boiled eggs salad..it's an exciting day for food!
Listening.. to crickets chirp, Yarrow snore, chickens squawk, and the real birds sing.
Grateful...for the quiet. For time to think and write, for Sunday afternoons at home.
Reading.. Oscar Wilde's Fairy Tales. They are beautiful. Buy them, in print, with illustrations and them read them aloud to someone you love in the evenings and cry together.
Loving..this month. The peace, the solitude, the fluidity to discover my own rhythm and the developing discipline to shape it into ritual.Hoping..for all the blessings God can give..why not think big, right! Today is Sunday, the day of hope and promise and new beginnings.
