Time to eat of life........

“We have forgotten that our only goal is to live and that we live each day and that at every hour of the day we are reaching our true goal if we are living . . . The days are fruits and our role is to eat them.” - Jean Giono



Wow! I am amazed at how often I take life & nourishment(body & soul) for granted.I whiz through most days in a hurried blur.Hours often tick away as I starve. I eat in a hurry & I live in a hurry marking off my days on the calander as If life will just continue forever & I can slow down at a later date.I read that quote early this morning & it made me very aware of my wastefulness.

Today I felt at one with the Earth. I enjoyed a crisp cold drive into work.I salivated over the smell of fresh roasted coffee beans. I sat down for a lunch of Vegan Soup & chewed ever so slowly savoring every vegetable & giving thanks to the Earth Mother for the blessing.

I spent about 20 minutes this afternoon with the door propped open & slipped my shoes off.The sidewalk was warm & the grit that was covering felt abrasive & rough.I could hear birds chirping & the breeze was glorious.

I came home to a happy husband, though he's exhausted from long shifts all week, but blessed to be in control & the financail gain is a positive move for him & us.He was starting a nap & was surrounded by loving cats to hold him down & whisk him off to dreamland.

Today I ate my fruit & I was blessed.
