After all that sturm und drang – a quiet day at last.  Time to reflect.  How lucky I am to have found such a gifted person to care for the boys while I was gone.  How lucky to be the recipient of all the many who pitched in, to make the last three months endurable.  How lucky to be done.  How lucky to have quiet.

The construction has stopped.

The rain has come.  Gentle, soft.

Summer melons have arrived.

About nadbugs

Anita loves cats. This must be because she, too, has had nine lives. She’s been dancing since she could walk, she was a commercial artist and advertising producer, she earned a third-degree black belt in Aikido, she is a drummer with the Afrique Aya Dance Company, she is an attorney, and she’s a meditator and a devoted student of Nonviolent Communication. She also spent one lifetime sidelined with a devastating back injury in 1992. Since then – FELDENKRAIS METHOD® to the rescue. The FELDENKRAIS METHOD is all about dreaming concretely – thinking intelligently and independently by way of a gracious and kind physicality. The work affords all who study it a process by which to reach, with movement, into the mind and the heart, to make nine lives into one whole being.

  1. Ooh, fluffy!! Love fluffy!!!!
    Glad you are breathing again. Melons look good. I love them. Quinn likes to lick the inside of the rines when I finish the melon part.
    Used to raise melons every summer when I was a kid. Half my small town probably cringed–“here she comes again with those dang melons!! Quick!! We’re not home!!” Hey, I gave them away. I didn’t charge a cent! And I always had a bumper crop.

    We are so pleased you finally have some quiet. You probably could sleep for just about forever. That is probably the floofiest tail any of us have ever seen. Bet that could be used for a little dusting around the house if you are set on doing some housecleaning. .
