52and40/33 Feel The Burn


How is it October?  And 2017?  And, bloody hell, I’m 41.  Anxiety’s  a tide inside my flesh.  What if I don’t have time to do it all, whatever else ‘it’ might be?  Then, eight hours later, zen.

My five nights on Raasay were wonderful.  Even the fall into a wide burn as if it were a bathtub was brilliant.  I attempted a swing from a tree branch to cross the water and, well, the rest is history – especially the branch.  It was a moment time did slow though, so, beautiful in it’s own way…

  1. I hate that ‘I want to do all of things, and yet I know I won’t have time to do as much as I long to’ feeling. It makes me intensely sad, but then I remember that if one sits on one’s slab weeping over time passing, more time will pass. Today I thought ‘screw the world’ and I took the hammock and a book down to the woods and sat and read, and rocked, and felt the autumn leaves rain down on me like confetti and nothing could have been better or more needed!

    1. My Goddess, that sounds fabulous. Today I could’ve been stressed and tried to ramp through 65 things on my ‘to do’ list and instead I choose three, did them well, and regret nothing. I think we’re fricking great. Hey, what’s the link to your love story too? I have thought of it often. X
