Today is a special one for me. I have been single one year, and I can say with all humility and seriousness that it’s been an amazing year of emotional pain and growth. I’ve learned to foster what matters to me and not worry about things that are not in my control. Meditation has helped, being in nature helps, taking photos help, but really it’s friends and family who have helped me rediscover who I am, and to accept who I am, as I am. Thank you so much for being there.
Right now I’m hanging out with old friends in new places. I’m writing this from a rock on a rugged beach on a canal watching dozens of bald eagles swoop down to the water to pick up a fish dinner. They do it with precision and effortlessly. A female eagle just swooped down from an Evergreen and her wings sounded like a feathery slingshot. The clouds are hovering over the tree lined mountains. It’s overcast and smells a little salty from the water.
A seal popped its head out of the water to greet me. A single seal, alone but just fine, like me. So very grateful for life’s bizarre and beautiful journey.
