Shadows as my Mantra

People say I’m lazy dreaming my life away
Well they give me all kinds of advice designed to enlighten me
When I tell them that I’m doing fine watching shadows on the wall
Don’t you miss the big time boy you’re no longer on the ball?

– from Watching the Wheels Go Round and Round
  John Lennon

Resting and recuperating as I allow a new way of being to unfold.  One of not being so busy, so driven, so something.  It is challenging. I like doing things, being out in the world, but to quote  one of the few, but favorite passages Ecclesiastes 3: 1-8 from the Bible that I know… “to everything there is a season…”

This is my time of watching the shadows on the wall- or the ground.

That said, we are off to Paris a week from today!  A belated birthday present and a wonderful getaway before all my treatments begin this month.

Oo la la!

    Oh la la I am so excited for you to be spending a belated Happy Birthday in Paris. Rest well, Be well my friend and take a long look at the shadows that are cast in the courtyard of the Louvre, the streets of Paris. Wishing for you a most joyous trip.

    Karen, Thank you! and thank you for the tips… I was gifted a new camera last night and can’t wait to capture the visual feast of the city and countryside. Have you been to Giverny?
