This year I turned 44! I am right where I am supposed to be and where I want to be. Life is a gift and over the years I have learned to appreciate the present. Sometimes the past creeps up with happy and sad memories, and sometimes I get anxious about the future. Sometimes I am down like everyone else, and sometimes I am happy. Mostly I try to be content.
The weather is nice this week - I am grateful for the sunshine. I feel so much at home in a warm (or even hot) climate, probably this is written deep down in my genes. I have been thinking about my ancestors, our traditions (regarding birthdays and obsessing about the death). I am slowly back on track - this whole year I would like to devote my practice to the rituals of my ancestors and how these connections shape the next generations.
