i've been feeling just a little.... suspended.... the last few days. not quite unbalanced, and not quite unsettled... more of a sense of mild disconnectedness and incompleteness.
it hasn't been anything terribly disconcerting, just a sort of noticing being adrift when what I wish to be feeling is a strong connection and immersion.

life is doing its thing without my being quite ready for the in between, i guess.

the garden is almost done.

the pool is almost warm enough for swimming.

the roses are almost blooming.

the days are almost summery.

the Cousins are almost gone (gone to us, we spent the day with them yesterday and said goodbye last night)....

today i need to dig deep and practice absolute mindfulness, i think.
connect with everything that i am doing.
breathe it in with every part of me.

sounds like a good place to start.


  1. Sounds like you're in that place where we often see our kids and wonder what kind of exciting, inspiring, innovative thing they're going to come out with while they hang out in that bored-don't-know-what-to-do place...and we know that's a good place to be - in hindsight lol.

  2. (((((you and yours)))))

    Goodbyes are haaa-ard. Good luck to them, and best wishes to you...

  3. Mmmmm I love these posts. So good to be reminded of reverence. Seems you are very connected and know what's missing

  4. I know that floating, Almost feeling, Stephanie. And the memory of it resonates, right now, with the energy of your post. I've just been there too, recently, and I wondered the same, and felt a little adrift, and wanted mindfulness.

    And suddenly, without me overly planning or thinking it, I found myself immersed, suddenly there, suddenly In the moment, absolutely. It came, just like that, because I was open to it, with all my spirit. As you are, which is inspiring, and is, exactly, a good, fine place to start.

    Sending warm smiles your way :)

  5. It's hard to be the leaver and it's hard to be the leavee. Big hugs to all.

  6. I've shared that feeling of being in between....good things await you on the other side friend.

  7. Feeling a lot like that myself. Deep breaths sound good. <> xoxo
