The wheel keeps spinning, always reminding me that this too shall pass. I’ve spent much of the last few years becoming ok with simply being in the middle area, serene and content, without highs too high or lows too low.
But, at the moment, I find myself at the top, checking out the view, and enjoying every second of this rockin’ awesome high flying ride I happen to be on.
If you’re not feeling this way, this too shall pass. I spent a lot of time praying for a balanced state of contentment and serenity and, while that’s great, the highs, lows, and middles all really feed each other. The rough times led me to appreciate the good in a way nothing else could and the good can be so intense and fun, it can be exhausting. And both lead me to appreciate the serenity of the in between. But, in the meantime, I’m going to enjoy every second of this ride!
The smell of roasting green chile wafts through the air as I eat a strawberry rhubarb crepe at The Downtown Grower’s Market, in Albuquerque. Working on Saturdays was not conducive to flower buying, coffee drinking, or people watching, but, after wrapping up the New Mexico portion of my latest movie and getting a full night’s sleep, I took full advantage of blue skies, cooler temps, and free time this morning. La vida buena.
After a 72 hour whirlwind of California color, love, weddings, friends, family, sun, waves, flowers, scones, and fun, I’m delayed in the Phoenix airport. Back to work in the morning, if the desert thunderstorms allow.
