if I had an anthem

from a solitary explorer's walk along the crescent beach at low tide & yes that crab's alive I moved him/her to this tide pool ;-)
Sometimes I need
only to stand
wherever I am
to be blessed.
I love nature so much & it fills me up to treat these long, new to me, solitary (too far a distance for Missy Dee these days) walks meditatively as if I'm an explorer, taking care to examine as if for the first time all the intricate & simple, tiny & amazing bits in any given square yard of life - especially life on and around the crescent beach at low tide.
Also loving in no particular order - hot steaming facecloths (a perpetual favourite simple thing), a freshly made bed with flannel sheets that were hung on the line outside, homemade pea soup, TV shows the Voice (love it) as well as MasterChef Junior & Homeland (I watch/listen at my computer while I clip, paste & collage bits), the smell of cat breath, kissing Oliver (he loves to be kissed), feeling afraid but learning to be kind of OK with feeling that way, reading fiction at bedtime (current good book is The Woman Upstairs) fiction calms my mind and relaxes me perfectly and I do love a Sunday, because Sundays feel like an it's-OK-to-goof-off day or at least a not be so focused on building my creative empire work day, a day to catch up with things I love like cooking, laundry, giving my office/studio a good clean for fresh start Mondays & maybe even vacuuming (snort !)
Happy, happy Sunday !
If I had an anthem for right now it would be this amazing Alicia Keys song - WOWEE !!
