Just some thoughts!



Today, has been one of those moments you wait whole lifetimes to experience, yet I haven't been anywhere other than my home and I haven't won the lottery. I think perhaps my journal entry from this morning might be able to better clarify what I mean: " Woke to sun-fired breezes and low lying fog. Dew still stains the windows, but heat and bird song seem intent to burn it away. A feeling, a sensation, a tingling awareness of being alive, coursing through the veins and capillaries. Watch the gulls aerial combats over a morsel of sustenance. Sing, twitter, soar to the heart's contentment. Throw face, skin, limbs and lanks, into the welcoming inferno of sun's gaseous rays. Feel burning, conflagration, scorching, cleansing of soul and mind. Welcome the radiated, sea-salted, spring breezes and feel their life-growing forces. Refresh, restore, reconfigure the essence. Lap in the milky health from nature's breasts. You are alive! ALIVE, ALIVE, ALIVE!" Yes, today is one of those days when the soul feels rested, revived, buoyed, and uplifted. I don't know what has made today so different from the countless other days before, but it's left me with a bubbling giddiness that only waits for the slightest pretext to issue forth in belly-felt laughter. In fact I spent almost a full hour doing nothing, but laying on my back, laughing as if I'd gone completely round the bend. Maybe I have, but if so, I'm enjoying every single moment of it! I feel expansive, open, full of love and tenderness, inundated with a magnanimity towards all creation. I want to share, to give, to be awed by the symphony of living! Today, is a very blessed day!
