"I do believe in an everyday
sort of magic;
the inexplicable connectedness
we sometimes experience with
places, people, works of art
and the like; the eerie appropriateness
of moments of synchronicity;
the whispered voice,
the hidden presence,
when we think we're alone."

~ Charles de Lint


It has been a happy week,
nothing out of the ordinary,
no major events or happenings,
just everyday living and connecting
with my world.

I've done lessons, both his and mine.
Smelled woolie yarn fumes as I've
knit probably more than I should.
Can there be such a thing?
Connected with friends, old and new.
Eaten very 'clean', only raw vegetables,
protein smoothies mixed with almond
milk and my morning cup of Bulletproof
Broke and turned on the A/C to sleep
one night only to pull a quilt on the bed
the following night when the temperature
drop over twenty degrees.
Smelled the sea air and watched birds
dance as waves crashed on shore.

Now to see what the weekend holds.
Have a great one my friends.
