The meditation today talks about looking for the good in all today….all also meaning traffic, I’m sure. I drove down to Palm Springs today. As a busy traffic day anyway, it was bumper to bumper traffic for much of the way. And it was raining. Normally rain isn’t that big a deal – if you happen to live or be from Florida, like me. But for Southern Californians, it’s just sad. And it’s cold today, at least cold for SoCal….I’m in Palm Springs right now and it’s 41. Snow flurries and frost are scheduled for morning.
I’ve been thinking about 2014. It’s been a tremendous year for me. My film Letter to Anita was born, thanks to Andrea Meyerson; I traveled to the Mediterranean including Italy, Turkey, Greece. Malta, and Israel; a week-long bike ride through Louisiana, two islands in Hawaii, The Villages and Tampa in Florida, Provincetown, Bermuda, and Seattle and Sequim, WA I moved into my mother’s house; love wove itself all around my life; my writing retreat business was initiated; my forth grandchild was born; I had the best speaking engagement of my career; and I’m healthy and financial secure. The blessings and gifts of 2014, the people who enriched my life, my good health, and the opportunity to travel made this another stellar year.
For all of this, and for the dear friends and family in my life, as the year closes, I am deeply, deeply grateful….
My meditation today from A Woman’s Spirit: No matter what happens, I must get on with my life. I am in good hands. My course has been set. I look for the good in all of today.
On this day in LGBT history (from QUIST and/or Lavender Effect: 1886 – Sadie Bigelow, 18, and Lizzie Hart, 19, had poisoned themselves. Lizzie died first, then Sarah who couldn’t live without her.
It’s good to be 67!
