Moments ago I was drawn outside. Maybe it was the whisper of the billowing curtain in my home office, or the hint of green I could see through another window, or the ache of my eyes from staring at a screen for far too long. Whatever the reason I felt myself stand up and move towards the window.
I needed a peak of what was out there. I needed to see something other than my laptop other than my cell phone. I needed to feel and see and just be.
Leaving my laptop open, my to do list undone I walked out of my office and towards the door. It was chilly but I didn’t want to waste the time getting a warmer sweater, so I wrapped my favorite summer shawl around my neck and wished it would be enough against the cool September breeze.
It wasn’t but that’s okay.
The breeze was a welcomed shock to my system. It reminded me that this is where I belonged. Out doors. Amongst nature. Under the bright blue sky where I could see the vibrant green leaves dancing in the wind and the birds taking flight and the flowers growing in the ground and the grass
All of it just there
Waiting for me
Knowing I’d come
Sitting on my front porch steps I thought of this article. Of this post. Of the feeling of being away from all of life and just being, just living, just breathing the fresh autumn air.
The wind rustled the few leaves on the grass, I could hear the words in the air – there is more to come, there is more to your life. Gazing up at the sky I let the thoughts wash over me
This is all part of the journey
This is just the beginning
