Sat on the deck again today taking pleasure in the sights and sounds & enjoying the rhythms of spring. So good to be outside, feeling connected to the earth. Betsy found a shady spot near my wheelchair and Muffy relaxed in the sunshine. All worries set aside. The joy of belonging! I must do this every possible day. What inertia, what fear holds me back? Such a simple, natural thing to do but extraordinary for me. I feel the keys turning and the door to my self-made prison slowly opening.
