can i tell


can i tell you about my days, can i tell you the small details that accumulate and fill the space of time, would that be okay? there so many little moments through out my day and even though i just asked if i could tell you, i realize how much there would be to write and i am not the best of writers. Instead can i tell you that right now i am sitting on the floor by the fire with my back to the couch my laptop resting on my thighs  tea cup to my side and music pouring out of my speakers. The sun is behind thick clouds but  still manages to create such a beautiful light.

Can i tell you that even though there is so much to think about, i have finally found a way to quiet my mind, not rush to get to a place i do not know. can i tell you that i have added some more things to my daily routine/rituals like holding a pencil in my hand and writing a few things that have trouble being said or written any other way and how i am doing push ups, gosh that sounds so harsh in contrast to what i usually say here but such a quick stress reliever and brings me a sense of calm. hands flat on the wooden floor, my weight resting on them as i move towards it and then push against it, move towards it, push away from it.

can i tell you that i took a long walk today and i touched the bark on trees and scooped the greenest of moss, it felt nice to feel these things,  to feel things in your hands.  right now the winter sun is coming in and that is nice on my skin, and the piano playing is also lovely. i am calm and that is unexpected.

I would love to hear about the small details of your days. You are so very wrong....I think you are one of the best writers. It makes my day when I log in here and see that you have done a post. I read and reread every word you write. Can I tell you that every word you write, moves me. No matter what you write about, the hill, the sun, the evergreens...I can feel your passion.

I am glad you found some calm, somewhere, somehow.

Sister, I loved this...I felt your calm and it brought me some at the same time...une journee a la fois!

Contentment-- most times it takes me by surprise amidst the clamor of living, to actually put name to it, mark it as such. Perhaps it comes with age as I,too, have been feeling more at peace, calmer. May everyday be this to you.

Quiet & calm; what a birthday gift for a heart that holds a special place for you.

I am the same way, I like touching trees and leaves. I love quiet too. I think I perfected staying still a long time ago, some friends say I seem so languid :)

I love reading about your days - and I truly believe you are the best of writers! I hope that you get a book deal and write a memoir - it would be lovely :)
