My wandering eye

Rests upon the mantel stone

Hidden in plain sight

Fog….A Haiku

Misty veil of fog

Murky Sunlight burning through

Clear, blurry my world

My backyard view this morning

Clear and blurry is my world these days. As I mentioned a few weeks ago , I’ve lost the vision in my right eye. That’s still the case. Looks like I’m dealing with a Vitreous Hemorrhage. Now my eyesight is far from perfect anyway, but let me say how humbling it is to find myself dealing with this. I’m hopeful that my vision, as imperfect as it may be, will be restored. In the meantime, while my view is distorted,  I can still see out of my left eye. 😉

Goodbye November..Hello December

Goodbye November…..

While many of us use the month of November to be more active and mindful in the Grateful and Thankful dept…I do make it a daily practice year round. I shared a wonderful pre-Thanksgiving meal with ‘my tribe’ of widows/widowers. I then spent a quiet Thanksgiving (my third without Jim) home alone…by choice. While I’ve been spending countless hours with my widow family as well as my daughter and her family, all of which I am Grateful and Thankful for, my solitude has taken a backseat. Add to that that I actually got a job (albeit it was short lived as it wasn’t a good fit….but I proved to myself I could do it!) Needless to say, the last few weeks of November I’ve felt my emotional well-being depleting itself day by day, I’ve felt lost and even confused and not liking any of it one bit. I realize it’s time I go back to ‘my basics’ before I find myself spiraling…….

My Tribe

 

Hello December….

With you, I’m going to get myself back on Linda’s Track. I need to make time once again for just me, myself and I. To reconnect with myself through my meditation practice as well as making time to write and paint again. All these things have taken a back seat of late and I miss them. I need to find a Balance that feeds all my needs, while I continue to grow. As I’m writing this, I realize that Balance has never been my forte…as I tend to go all in on something a hundred miles an hour,  in a hundred directions to boot, no wonder I’m out of sorts! Maybe Balance will prove to me my Word for 2019?!
