This was one of the most beautiful moments of my day, my year, fuck... maybe my life. This picture of the last bloom, for the season.
I had been working in the garden, quite pleased that I was provided one last, warm, sunny day, to thank my earth babies for being in relationship with me. Growing, learning, and changing with me, the last 8 months.
I was working to set the plants which make the journey through winter, ready for the cold, and said goodbye to those plants that would find their final sleep.
I worked without music for the first time in a long time. I found my focus on the immense gratitude I was feeling for the representation of life I had cultivated. And how that earthly life I am spending time with, generated so much presence, manifestation, of beautiful things in my life.
I had been working with my head down, moving soil, enjoying the warmth of the sun on my back. Meditating on the sometimes neglectful behaviors I have - which I have displayed in both romatic and earthy relationships over the last year.
As I sat up to stretch, I was thinking about my thoughts - yes internal meta communication... what can I say!! I realized, these thoughts did not exist in a negative way, but in an accepting awareness of room for growth. Awareness of my human-ness, my softness, my ability to observe and learn.
In this moment I look to my right and see the sun shining on this perfect pink dahlia! I touch it, I thank it, I honor it, for its presence in sharing this moment of realization. For silently honoring my growth, my struggle, my being, without being asked but knowing it does. Knowing I am cared for, I am enough, knowing I am love and light today.
