and for anyone else that needs it...
Art journal page - "Find the Barriers"
Quote from Rumi
So yesterday was pretty restful which is what I needed. I am still way behind in terms of catching up with my peeps in Blogland but at least I am feeling a little more rested and a little more Kim-like after spending the late morning at play in the art journal, and the afternoon doing what these two precious Kitties were doing :
Cosmo napping in his sunbeam basket...
Naps are good for what ails you.
Still feeling a little fragile but that seems to be the thing for many of my friends and family right now. Let's all try and be kind to ourselves, I say. You may not be able to count on life being kind to you or even on the people around you being nice, but with a little effort, we can at least count on ourselves !
Today is going to be about nesting a little and getting things ready for Sherry's visit. She and her man are coming for dinner on Sat. evening after Sherry and I spend out play day together.
Have you ever had someone you have never met for dinner ?
I haven't but I am looking forward to it. My main challenge is to keep things real and just be me. Not to notice all the little things that need fixing around the house or the dust on the base boards (I will keep the lights dim, I think ! ;)). I know Sherry sees my heart and I know that she will feel my welcome and that is what is important. (I keep on telling that to the Martha-wanna-be inside me over and over ! )
After the nesting time, at around 4:00pm, I am going on a little adventure. I met a young, talented artist at the craft fair last Saturday named Nick. He creates these amazing vessels out of carved cardboard - awesome ! Anyway, he contacted me on Sunday via email and asked to interview me for an assignment for his college writing class. They have to interview a stranger and he was intrigued by the Rock My World adventures and how I use my rocks to spread a little more love around. I thought it was such a brave thing to do to reach out like that ! I am very flattered and honored.
We are meeting at Barnes and Noble today so he can conduct his interview with the Rock Fairy. Pretty cool, eh ? I am sure she will be bringing him a little bag of love rocks to give out on his own adventures...
So spend some time today being really kind to your Self, beautiful Ones. We really do deserve it !
Rock On !
