Being in the Now

It’s been a good while since I’ve posted anything here.  The reason is both simple and complex.

The simple version is that I’ve been uber busy with life.  Every day seems to be full and more full of tasks to do and to be completed, and it also seems like more gets done each day than anytime I can recall.

Time has flown past with the most amazing speed.  The entire experience of time is not even familiar to how I’ve been accustomed to knowing it for my lifetime.

My spouse and I have been immersed in the process of filing out visa forms and sorting out the storage items we haven’t seen in many years.  I feel like I’ve been pulled through an eye of a needle from the present to the past and back again repeatedly.

The good part about this is how it’s clarified for me what I will leave behind and what I will bring with me into what follows.  There is little desire to bring the past with me now, or to hold much from the past, either in the physical, or in the memories, or in the cells of my body, for that matter.

My attention and what I care about has shifted dramatically in the last couple of years.  All this has really been made perfectly clear with these ‘mundane’ tasks going on for the last three weeks.

Most all the energies in my present desires are about bonding with others and pursuing creative and fun tasks.  For me, this has meant a whole lot of joy being in the kitchen because I do love to cook.

Mostly it’s been about being present in the now.  Being present to my relations, to my tasks at hand, to myself and what matters to me.  I think that now that the visa is on its way to being done and the sorting tasks are done, there will be more time to spend writing again, but we will see how this plays out.

Much love to all of you,

Andrea
