Momentary Clarity

December 8, 2009

The past few days have been a dizzy blur. Trying to figure out a way to get to my friends in North Carolina. Trying to overcome the shock of what has happened.Trying to adjust to the fact that Adam had to leave suddenly and unexpectedly this past weekend for an unknown amount of time (luckily it appears to be a shorter time than expected). Trying to keep things feeling fairly normal in our house although internally things are feeling very abnormal right now. This morning a friend offered to watch Camille. I had been planning to continue working on flight arrangements, attempt to finish the Christmas packages, wrap the kids' Hanukkah presents, get the oil changed, pay the phone bill, and clean up the office. I didn't do any of that. I rolled out my yoga mat and started to really breath again. I sat in the sun and read my book. I ate lunch by myself and savored the quiet. I watched Mad Men. I felt myself start to decompress a bit. When Camille came home, I rolled out some paper on the patio and she painted while I continued to read. I looked up and took this quick pic. Camille in the sun, happily painting, surrounded by a mess of bikes and it kind of summed up today and the past few days. Momentary clarity, focus, and calmness in the midst of upheavals and scary uncertainties. Thank you for the prayers and good thoughts for Flip and Jill and their family. Please keep them coming.
