Night

Owls wisely hooting
Grounding and discovering
Wolves magically howling
Full moon lights the field
Each step is an encounter

I wrote this tanka last night listening to the owls hooting at the distance. It was a warm autumn night, I kept the windows open giving permission to the crisp air and the sounds of the night enter my home and clear my thoughts.

The moon will guide you through the night with her brightness, but she will always dwell in the darkness, in order to be seen.

seasons

on my way today

the sun is getting lower and lower each day. the earth is turning gold, and the air is crisp. a new season is coming. i love each moment of it.

I went very early for a walk today, I met many people on the way, we exchanged smiles and said good morning. I could feel their positive energy for the new day ahead, hope they felt mine too! And you can feel it too!

Live each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each.

books

books. i’ve many, my bookshelves are overflowing! i read a lot, and i really like to feel the weight of the book in my hands. most of the time i order the hardcopy, or the real book as i like to say. i’ve my kindle that i use mostly when travelling, and now in COVID times i’m using it more, i’m not comfortable in getting books by mail.

i don’t keep all the books i’ve read, only the ones that really touched me and i’m sure i’ll go back to them, so i donate most of my books during the spring, but this year the donation centres around here have stopped receiving books donations. i’ve sorted out the books i want to keep and made this pile for donation. these books are waiting for new hands to hold them.

And you? do you prefer hardcopy or electronic version? do you keep all your books?

A room without books is like a body without a soul.

on my way

What you seek is seeking you

Wow! It’s July 31st! And I did it! At least one blog post per day during this month! A perfect farewell for the quarantine, since next month I’m going back to the office.

Thanks so much Becky for the inspiration and gratitude to all of you that followed me in this journey, clicking like or leaving wonderful comments on my posts. I think that in almost 7 years of blogging this is the first time that I posted everyday!

Have a great weekend!

Side by Side

hubby and me

We did 5.6K today! Side by side! Two summers ago hubby had to carry me from the bed to the bathroom. The recovery path isn’t easy, it takes time, little by little, step by step.

Some of you know what I’m referring to, you were there with me and your love helped me a lot. I still can’t write about it, a nightmare that I need to forget, but I know I should write it down to remind me that I survived, I’m here! As I said, step by step, maybe one day!
