have you ever hit publish when you were not at all ready to do so? i did that earlier today.
today is the first day in what seems a long while that leaving the house has not been required.
when the empty vessel of your home, which simultaneously is alive, is full of possibility.
there has been a lot of this sitting at the computer. but productively sitting.
the stringing of some lights in the bedroom.
the kind of dusting where, instead of removing all the objects off the surface and doing a clean sweep, you just dust around the objects, sometimes with the pads of your fingers (this method not approved by the clean police).
the arrival of the first of a new magazine subscription dan gifted me with at christmas. subscriptions to living crafts were being offered as a fund raiser for our school. sweet!
and also today, a great deal of reflection.
i even started the day off sitting on my zafu and meditating.
i successfully procrastinated on two projects i am giving myself a march 28 deadline for.
i'm hoping to discontinue this sluggish behavior once tashi gets home. a fellow parent is giving her a ride, so, as earlier mentioned, it is not required of me to leave the house. but there are a few errands to be run. and i would like to get outside and pick up the yard a little. the strangest bits of garbage seem to drift into our yard.
dinner will be lentils, rice with orzo, sweet italian chicken sausage and greens. and then it will be time to hunker down and read all about ostara.
wishing you all a thoughtful spring equinox. dig in and plant those seeds for real.
oh, and for those of you wondering why the photos of the highchair: when i saw the seat this sweet chocolate bunny was sitting in, i was inspired to photograph tashi's beautiful old neglected highchair.
