Another Reincarnation

Hubby and Daughter

here i am, finally moved up to Oregon to live with my husband of three years. this will be our first time actually living in the same house for more than a month at a time. i’m looking forward to it.

that hasn’t always been the case. a year ago i would’ve felt differently. oh, i love him. that’s a definite. but some anxiety and frustration were present then that have since dissipated. through my yoga practice, my friends, my dear friend connie, and growing wiser with the writings of many great teachers, i’ve come to a peaceful and open place in this life.

as i was driving to Oregon from southern California, i wondered what it would be like to live with this man i call my love. i didn’t know what to expect, with all of our idiosyncrasies and quirkiness. i hadn’t realized at the time that i no longer felt anger. about anything. anything at all. and i hadn’t in a long time. that was a surprise. whatever comes up during the day, i can see with clear, open eyes. with no sense of judgement or blame. no condescension or bitterness. it’s as if i’ve lived my life  not knowing what those words mean. how can that be?

Sandy River, near our home

i can only say that i am here, right now, to live this moment. nothing more. nothing less. i look around and see what needs to be done, what box needs unpacking, what dish needs washing, which dog needs attention, what man (only my man, thank you) needs kissing. this is my practice. allison, my yoga instructor was right all along. here it is. right here. what a beautiful day. . .

Hi everyone! I'm so glad you're here. I hope you move closer to what your spiritual truth is in this place we call earth from reading my journal.
