notes on living a life

enchantment || week 2

"I do not understand how anyone can live without some small place of enchantment to turn to." 
— Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings

my week held a bit of uncertainty, getting the hang of new projects
and practices. . . 
backing away a bit and yet moving forward

to get ahead of it
i suggested a drive up to see the kids
which was just what i needed

"I spent a long time trying to find my center until I looked closely at it one night & found it had wheels and moved easily in the slightest breeze. So now I spend less time sitting and more time sailing. " 
— Brain Andreas,  Story People  

i spent some time looking for myself
in unexpected places
but all the time knowing right where i was 

"We don't realize that, somewhere within us all, there does exist a supreme self who is eternally at peace." 
— Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

three things:
1. sometimes i miss not having a cat
2. i have meditated nine days in a row (i wonder how long before it clicks?)
3. i bought a brand new journal for a brand new class 

“Everything you can imagine is real.” 
― Pablo Picasso
