It has been nearly a week since my last post. With Sage's memorial today, and Dad's tomorrow, there have been a lot of preparations to take care of, and I have not had the mental energy to write. At this point, though, most of the planning and preparing that can be done has been done, and the only thing left is to relax into the experience.
Thich Naht Hanh offers the following meditations:
Feelings come and go
Like clouds in a windy sky.
is my anchor.
Breathing in, I calm my body,
Breathing out, I smile.
Dwelling in the present moment,
I know this is a wonderful moment.
