Welcome to February. One month of 2013 down and 11 more to go. I have good thoughts about 2013 and am looking forward to all that will transpire this year. Lots of changes to come, I know, but I am open and willing to accept all that is thrown my way. My first big heartbreak this year has come since the Niners lost the Superbowl. That’s all I will say about that. Now on to today’s thoughts.
Taking away the Superbowl, I had a terrific time up in the Grand Canyon. It was cold, there was snow on the ground and it snowed Sunday morning, which I thought was pretty cool even though I was the only one. I was picked on all weekend for being cold, but it was all in good fun.
It was so great being able to spend some time with Diana and meeting her friends. One of the best things was when Diana was showing me around her work. It was so cool to have my very own personal tour guide. Of course the scenery was beautiful. The Canyon is simply a sight to see and so spiritual.
Diana and I had some wonderful conversations especially on the drive back to Flagstaff on Monday. I had been having some issues and she was so terrific at helping me understand it all and look at things differently. I said this before and I will say it again, Sometimes talking to your best friend is just what the doctor ordered.
All in all I think this past weekend was great for me and Diana. Because of health issues with me it has been 10 years since I had been up to the Canyon so this was a huge step forward and relieved quite a few worries for me and I hope for Diana too. I am thrilled I made the trip and am already thinking about the next time I will get up there.
Timing is everything. I have an album that I have had for years and never really thought much about it. In the last 6 months that album has become my favorite and boy does it touch me in so many ways. I think I just had to get in the right mindset to truly appreciate how wonderful this album is.
It is just interesting to me how even after years you can look at something and see an entirely different thing than you used to see. I guess it just takes a shift in perception and my perception has certainly changed in the last 6 months.
Have you ever had that feeling that something you are holding is just slipping through your hands like sand in between your fingers? I am having that feeling right now and I am not sure what to think about it. Obviously, I don’t want to lose what I feel is slipping away, but I have no idea how to stop it, or even if I am meant to stop it.
I’m sure there is a lesson there for me but I have yet to figure it out. I know I should probably just release all my fears and simply trust, and the truth is I am working on doing just that. I still have to fight my urge to understand everything. This spiritual growth certainly has its share of bumps and pot holes for me.
That’s about all for today. Not much thinking done in the last week. I suppose that might be a good thing. Thanks for reading.
