In August of this year I declared, on these pages, my desire to simply lay on a beach and be.
It was a want I could not shake. Of course it goes without saying that I like to travel, who doesn’t?(asshole ex not included). And I am particularly fond of sun, sand and lovely blue water, but when I put it out there four months ago I was not so certain it would become a reality.
My soul rejoiced today when I stepped off the plane in Hawaii.
It will no doubt continue to rejoice over the next five days as I absorb what I came for. A calm and gentle peace in my heart.
My younger brother is in the middle of a ten day meditation retreat. My brother, who I adore, is hard core. This retreat he’s at is 10 days of no talking (no voice, written word, or hand gestures) and ten hours and forty-five minutes of meditation each day. He’s never done it before but he was very excited to meditate on what he wants out of 2012. After talking to him I realized that’s why I’m here. To spend some time honestly thinking about what I want in and out of my life in 2012. Meditation Hawaiian Style.
I saw the most amazing sunset tonight.
My heart is happy and quite content. Can it get much better than this? Possibly, but in an effort to stay in the moment I must declare that this, right now, is pretty spectacular.
