Sometimes the things that we observe are big and obvious, and sometimes we go about our days surrounded by the subtle, little things—that when we slow down and reflect—allow us to see the world in a new light.
Idealist. Realist. Optimist. Call it what you will, as I’m usually putting my efforts into reframing a situation into a positive one. I like to see the sunny side of EV-ER-Y-THING.
Heck yes, Summer is in full swing! It’s my favorite time of year and the season when the natural world is a veritable feast for the senses. Verdant walking trails seem to be everywhere and there’s no short supply of summer’s delicious flavors and its healthy vegetables and fruits.
About a year ago, I wrote this post on Gluten Free Sage about inspiration and why inspiration matters. It began with happy memories of the pop culture years of the late ’60s and how they kept popping up throughout my days—as either a wistful thought or nostalgic feeling. This seemed too much of a coincidence. I wanted to investigate further. Then more synchronicities occurred and I found myself suddenly following an exciting line of action and reaction. My soul was sending me on a journey.
I just returned from a weeklong trip through the country of Cuba. Living off the grid has taken on an entirely new meaning to me.
Take a moment and think—
What does it mean
To have fresh water to drink?
To splash on your face, brush your teeth
And hydrate your body with its exquisite embrace?
A daily ritual some might accidentally
Take for granted
To have water at your fingertips
And to your lips
To restore your body in big thankful sips!
