What I Tell Myself

Sunday Prayer

mountainDear Mister Big Man of All Things,

Hey listen I know you’re just about as busy as the person in charge of keeping Victoria Beckham waxed and all but if you could find it in your schedy to remind me of my majestic parts I’d be forever indebted. And I’m not talking about Nobel Peace Prize winning or Astronaut To the Moon Riding kind of stuff—I’m just talking about those days when I wake up feeling full of light and I am able to carry that through until at least late afternoon. Or when I am able to carry on a loving conversation with my mother without taking the bait she propels out to me like some smarmy fly fisherman. I’m talking about how I wiggle into my majestic strength and serenity. How, at certain times, I am capable of letting the storyline go and I just drift along, unencumbered by grief or anger or resentment or tumult. Can you remind me of this? Can you help me notice those times when I am a heavyweight in my own corner, ready to take on the next challenge like some weightless angel in search of something plain and gorgeous, thank you amen you may be seated.

Yours In Selfie Selfersonism,

Saturday SlobberLove

pillowSometimes on Saturday, after our morning is bombarded with tree trimmers and construction workers and noisy pedestrians walking to the beach, we like to take our place on our especially high perch just to make sure that everything stays in order.

Weekend Weather

weekendWinds from the east will bring a certain cozy anticipation, however lingering sorrow may increase the chance of light tears. Jumpy, anxious and glorious sunsets will create monsoonal moisture that leaves even the most steady heart trepidatious, thinking of the weird yet interesting family conversations to be had around various holiday tables.
