calm vs storm

“there are some things you learn best in calm, and some in storm” – willa cather

i am finding my groove, my rhythm. i’ve been walking, people watching and writing at cafes, and generally finding my calm. i feel better, more in tune, and generally much more relaxed about where i am and what lies ahead. the other night as i was drifting to sleep, i had a sense of real clarity, a sincere knowing that i am doing the best i can, that i am where i should be, and that all struggles and joys are quite small in the big scheme of things. feeling comforted by these moments of okay-ness, I fell asleep with a few tears of release, then woke up to a new outlook. i love these days. i really do.

another thing i really love are all the hilarious google searches that lead people to this site (if you ask me, it’s the very funniest and best thing about having a site meter).

some recents:
“in love with my acupuncturist”
“kelly kelly showing her boobs to everyone” (because, well, it’s my favorite thing to do)
“how to wear red shoes”
“finding your wings”
“story embarrassing wrong suitcases” (have i ever told you about the time i went on vacation and accidentally took the empty suitcase instead of the packed one?).

thank you, sincerely, for the kind messages (both in this space and in email) of support and encouragement lately. it’s a inspiration to me. really it is. i most definitely feel a special connectedness, a sisterhood of collective stories when it comes to this whole writing process.

Sending much love,
