Yesterday I'm trying to remember yesterday. I want that feeling back. Standing on my head at beach yoga. The sand between my fingers. I imagined it as the instructor told us to do, and with her help, I did it. I was out running and there was a rainbow in the clouds that was a delightful surprise.
Awesome find in the iPhone app store: middle finger emoji. Just knowing they exist (mean flipping off, smiling flipping off and blowing kisses and flipping the bird) on my phone now makes me grin - a slightly evil, mischievous grin. At home, Henrietta Hoots was in her usual spot under the bush - my aloof outdoor fuzzy.
I sat for a few minutes and blew bubbles and smiled at the joy of it.
My lovely, wonderful, kind, superstar friend Kate stopped by and giggled at me and my bubble blowing. She brought me a coloring book - perfect!
We had just read this in an article on Openmind.com: "Coloring allows to unlock your creative potential. Perhaps more important, it helps relieve tension and anxiety. It unlocks memories of childhood and simpler times." - See more at: http://www.the-open-mind.com/according-to-psychologists-coloring-is-the-best-alternative-to-meditation/#sthash.tdpObpNv.dpuf I should definitely color today. I feel gray like the sky outside.
I'm building layers every hour to brighten everything: beach yoga with always positive and lovely Jess; dolphins; hearts in my chai; love flowing in and out between friends near and far; thinking about my grandmother who died this week six years ago and who would have been 86 at the end of this month; thinking about my grandfather far away in Kentucky who I'm sure is thinking of her.
