There is a freedom that comes from having no fixed abobe, and as I adjust my thinking around it, I have realised that this lifestyle encourages you to stay in the moment.
As I opened my eyes this morning a very lovely cat stretched out his paw to say ‘Good morning’. I stroked his head as we chatted about our plans for the day. His are much simpler than mine. He closed his eyes again, with his head nestled in my hand, and I lay gazing at his beautiful face and markings as he gently purred.
Em got in touch last night to ask if I remembered how she and her Dad used to do battle with computer games? I recalled these sessions very well and wished them luck in their latest ‘head to head’ on XBox. She is starting a week of pet and house sitting for her Dad and his partner as they set off on holiday today, then she’s away to Spain with the rugby team from Uni. Go Em. X
Last night an email came in from a lovely friend, in the little village where I used to live. She wrote about her children, the farm, work in the woods and how many calves they have being born from their organic cattle herd. She asked if I could come and care for their home and brood in the Summer and also, extended the invitation to come and stay anytime as we miss each other and are due a good catch-up.
This morning I had a heart warming chat with my inspiring Reiki Master and dates have been booked in the diary. This will give us time for a catch-up, space to run some creative ideas past each other and she can show me the ropes with her brood for future care.
I got dressed this morning with one of my favourite pictures of Em on the bedside table, next to Granny’s little music box and a gripping book from Mum. Breakfast was made with bread from David.
The belonging for me comes in these loving moments.
