Sunday Morning Ease

This has become my prayer, these easy Sunday mornings. I slip into them like a soft, familiar, roomy, comfortable sweater that feels like second skin. The smoke of the incense swirls up into . . . I don't know where. Spearmint oil is bubbling through the diffuser in the corner. I sit near my Durga candle and sip my coffee, this week with so much extra on my mind.

This morning I am flipping through Nayyirah Waheed's

Salt & nodding my head & feeling her words touch a place deep in my heart.

"sometimes the night wakes in the middle of me.

and i can do nothing


become the moon."

This morning I am envisioning moonbeams glowing from my center outward. I want to be the light for someone's darkness. And in a sense, I am already being just that.

This morning I am so in love with my lazy dog who {in my humble opinion} is the most adorable creature walking this earth.

This morning, I am so deeply feeling in tune with the Octopus card I pulled from the Animal Spirit deck. I'm all arms, fingers in many pots, reaching, and totally in the midst of creating healthy boundaries around my new normal as we navigate through Zak's health issues.

This morning I know that I have options. This morning I know to turn inward, access the light, and beam. This morning is ease, and I won't fall apart. Not yet, anyway.
