Moving on by being still

It’s August, y’all.  My house isn’t ready to be sold, my daughter’s not quite in college, the ring I designed to incorporate my garnets and engagement diamond into a family ring has been at the jeweler’s since May, I’m not quite over my separation, divorce, or work troubles, or loneliness, bitterness, or vindictiveness.

Everything’s lying dormant.  It’s the dog days, I guess.  Nothing’s wrong, but nothing’s stepping forward from the lineup to volunteer to be resolved.

That’s okay.  I can wait.  I have to wait. And by enjoying this pause, I can move on by being still.

  1. Thank you for the reblog, Chris! I think the extra interaction with my friends’ dog and my cat have taught me to at least try to be still sometimes. Glad it struck a chord with you. I know your blog strikes chords in me all the time.
