Quite the opposite of On the Loose, I have been experiencing my life as tightly wound. My sweet, spacious, stay-at-home, art teacher life, that balanced joyful go-with-the-flow life has had a strange, edgy fast lane feeling that I desperately want to transform.
A week of science camp with Annie deep in the primordial redwoods (no electricity or cell) re-calibrated and healed patterns of electronic pollution and over-work.
And just now, I'm sitting in a urban jugular point (downtown Oakland city center at 5:00 p.m. at a cafe while Annie is in chorus practice) and I am completely relieved of the notion that my life is scheduled and lacking in choice! I'm sipping tea with Jasper the Wonderdog at my feet as throngs of people race by me in uncomfortable looking work attire, expressions and intent.
Oh! Thank you universe for this moment. My life is full of choice and freedom and joy and children and beauty and creativity.
I choose MY LIFE!
