What is a friend? A single soul dwelling in two bodies-
The great discovery in life as we age (age not to be confused with mature …) is how much better, more fulfilling life becomes.
We spend much of our youth searching for “something” in the clouds of insecurity, trying to figure out exactly how to live. As turbulent time passes we gather slowly, more about our aims and preferences. Comparing ourselves to others diminishes, we know where our heart lies and our flight path is marked moving forward.
The search for meaning carries on throughout our entire life, although as we age, the deeper spiritual questions we have become more urgent and become more clear to us. The daily petty concerns that surround us are recede to their rightful place – unnoticed and forgotten. The wide-ranging emotions all of us have experienced this week, awakens our spiritual domain and delicately shows us what really matters in life.
The radiance we witness in the “older folk” comes from smiling and being more alive. We stop hurrying to every fleeting meeting we have scheduled, slowing down we develop attentiveness that adds an entire new flavour, richness to our daily experiences.
Well said my friend. Thanks too, I needed it. Enjoy your weekend
The best years are still in front of us. Now only is this weather would cooperate a little bit more … I hope you and your family do the very same, take care this weekend.
To notice things around me, sounds. A rustling in the bushes on the other side of the gravel lot from where I parked this morning made me listen this evening. I was rewarded . . . the sounds of two fighting cats screaming and fighting, tussling and then, shooting out from the bushes across 100′ of open space right past us. Instinctively, I made funny noises to distract them to break up the fight. It worked. Then I realized that the pursuer was a small (red?) fox, not that much larger than the cat. The cat ran out into the lot, but the fox stopped, backed away, then watched the cat which had circled around and run back toward the lot and the houses beyond it. The fox took off in pursuit, but I heard no more rustling or screaming.
A fox. In the middle of Las Cruces, NM. I am not telling a soul specifically where I saw it–or they will set up traps and call it a nuisance, kill the beautiful creature.
What a memory. Rewarded by beauty. Indeed, I felt as if I had been rewarded by nature to see her in action. The fox will probably not be hungry for long.
Great story! I’m dead serious, I love it. 🙂
I loved experiencing it. I had a feeling I should share it here. 🙂
My Son and I are happy recusing worms from under a wet garage door, I can only image what we do in your shoes 😉
I guess the best part of aging for me is that my patience has grown and I appreciate every blessing that comes my way. 🙂
Very, very true!
