Join me.

There's a movement out there that I'm joining. Click
HERE to read about it. You might want to join it, too.
And speaking of that movement . . . this quote fits well with what I did today - and with that movement:
"The soul is healed by being with children." -Fyodor Dostoevsky
Now I really didn't need my soul healed this morning (thankfully)- but I got it healed, anyway!. I was with little Caroline while her mommy and daddy were at Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas where John had surgery on his knee. The surgery went very well. And me, I got to have a wonderful time with sweet Caroline. She is such a dear. . . and wise beyond her months (she'll be 18 months June 28th). It was so great just being with her. Life seemed to slow down . . . and be very gentle.
Thank you, Lord.

Ok. I will join you. I'm about to take a nap actually. Or maybe just lay down and listen to music. that is my contribution today.

Nancy, you are so nice. I'm going to start working on a new entry just for you. So, I guess that means I'll have to put off joining the movement for about thirty minutes. Then, I plan to watch TV in support of the revolution.

I didn't know there was an actual movement going on, but I have been living that "slow" lifestyle for about three years now -- what a change it has made in my life. I get everything done that's really important and don't spaz out over a to do list that never is going to be blank anyway. And, I have time to REALLY enjoy everything I do because I have time to be in THAT moment instead of my mind always being concerned about the moment that's coming next. It's a softer, gentler way to be in the world - like a dog lying in the grass, eyes open, gently aware of everything going on around him, but not getting up to investigate anything until something unusual gets his attention -- just taking it all in and being happy to just be. I read about this in last months Oprah Magazine (Martha Beck's column -- June 2008), and she encouraged the reader to sit and "soft focus" for a few minutes and take note of everything you see, hear, smell, feel, taste. WOW -- it is SO relaxing to do that a couple of times a day -- and it's amazing how much is going on in the world that we miss cause we're so busy.

Welcome aboard the "Slow Train!"

Craziness

To me, these are crazies...  Trump's 'cages' have turned into Biden's 'migrant facilities'. It is just semantics.  -...
