"Welcoming the change" is echoing in me on many levels indeed! One is relief that summer is over - too much heat and too many biting insects! Not my
favorite season...which is now making her presence felt in the cool edges of the remaining heat and the slow turning of color - my very favorite of all of nature's changes!
am very aware of being now in my seventieth year - to be completed next June. This is another invitation to "welcome the change." With this awareness comes a kind of intensity, a focusing of who I am at this time, and what is most important for me to
be offering the world. It is an inner intensity; a kind of focusing on what is most important, even as I choose not to participate in some things I have previously been part of. Change. Honoring a shifting energy, and an invitation to be faithful to inner
insight as physical engagement shifts, and diminishes in some directions.
On the other hand, I feel physically stronger that when I was 25! Joan and I have been biking every day
since April, and have worked up to about 24 km every three days, with shorter rides in between. Grief for losing MaChree nearly a year ago and two brothers before that is softening somewhat; they are shifting into a different place in my heart, even as my
heart is opening to the possibility of another cat-companion when the opportunity opens. You who read this: what are your changes?
