Nature and Who I Am

Yesterday was my birthday. After visiting my mom and sharing birthday cupcakes I headed home. It was a quiet afternoon. I went to Slaughter Beach in hopes of seeing the horseshoe crab migration to lay their eggs. I didn’t wait long enough as they came onto the beach an hour after I left. One of these years I will see them. I have been trying for six years.

Things have been relatively quiet with my husband and myself. The lawyer seems to be sitting on filing the papers. My husband and I had two arguments this past week. One was particularly difficult. We are trying hard to be civil and kind to each other. Some days work better than others. I only want peace and quiet. To read my books, to draw, to listen to podcasts, explore nature, think quietly and observe art and the world.

With my birthday rolling around again. I have been thinking a lot about who I am, who I want to be and who I am to others. I practice Tai Chi. I am a Reiki Master/Teacher. I am quiet and a thinker. I am grateful for my friends who bring out different sides of me. They don’t judge me when I am depressed or struggling.

I have wanted to get a lot done today but after visiting my mom I lost my energy. Also I became mesmerized watching the wind blow through the trees. Happy June and thank you.
