I find myself in a strange, disconnected, space tonight. I did not sleep well (meaning AT ALL) last night. I fell into some kind of awful sleep coma from about 8am til 11:30 and emerged from it wishing that I had just gotten out of bed at 4:15 am when I was wide awake and not feeling like some sort of swamp beast.
That said, I really wanted to drop a wee line to thank you for hanging out with me in 2016. What a year, what a year, what a year…. And how very fast they fly by me.
I want to say, “May 2017 be a fabulous year for you!” And I do hope that. But the hype the hype the hype of all the “make this your BEST year YET!” and alla that…well… in all honesty I just find it bloody exhausting.
My aim for 2017, if I even have an aim other than showing up as honestly and truthfully as I can to each moment, is to Keep It Simple.
To continue the practices that I know make me feel better. That thing I like to call “making AMESS” each day.
I want, very much, to catch myself when I begin to feel the urge to cram more…whatever… into my brain. To add another “practice” that I think will somehow make me more worthy of the air I breathe. To keep click click clicking in search of…what the hell am I even searching for? Connection, I believe. Wisdom.
Well, here’s to less click clicking for me and more… picking up the phone or gathering with people face to face.
To more meals shared, more walks taken and talks had.
To more time spent offline and unplugged – be it time alone or with friends.
And THAT said – here’s a few online treasures I’ve found this year that I’d like to share with you (in no particular order):
And finally – this wonderful musician I discovered on the Insight Timer app and now can not get enough of. I love listening to his stuff while I sit or while I soak in the bath. Ahhhh…. especially good with headphones.
You can find out more about Jonathan (Jon) Adams and his lovely sound work over at http://sonicyogi.blogspot.ca
Please feel free to share any treasures you may have found this year with me down in the comment section, or by email, or hell, drop me an old school letter. I love that.
Sending out bright sparkly wishes for peace and goodwill.
Happy New Year to one and all.
Go easy ~p
