|new round glasses, new round pearl ring, old earrings with circle cut-outs, beautiful round onion rings (is there a tastier food?)|
certain motifs keep reappearing this week: visual, thematic, sounds, etc. maybe i've been paying closer attention?
1. circles. i love the look of circles. my new round sunglasses, chosen for me at target by ingrid, these beautiful onion rings we ate tonight on our date at timp freeze in midway, new round pearl (not real for heaven's sake) ring, earrings with the cut out circle in the middle, and this tiny adorable cake from cakes de fleur we picked up at the store in midway after dinner. we'll eat it later tonight when the ice cream i made in the new ice cream maker hardens (i think i successfully recreated snelgroves' burnt almond fudge.)
|six-inch buttermilk cake from cakes de fleur. adorable. no preservatives. whole ingredients. it's hard to buy a good cake in utah.|
and, finally, "o" for "om."
|whereas we used to each eat an entire order like this, we now share. we both feel reborn after too many years of not feeling good.|
2. transitions. tonight lula went to her first dance. sob! which means. . . i can't even think about what it means, so i'll focus on the practical implications: we need a new date night babysitter. we are all on the cusp of the new school year, and eva is transitioning into her new life in salt lake. it's exciting, and a little terrifying, too.
|since i can't think about lula liking boys, i'll think about finding a new date-night sitter. hey. timp freeze in midway's a great hangout spot.|
so patience and more patience is in order.
|sadhguru of isha yoga is my meditation teacher's guru. she claims meditation totally transformed her. i met someone in nyc in may who told me the same thing. can't hurt to try it. i promise i'll never quote deepak chopra.|
|my inspiration for listening was this book, another meditative text that changed my life.|
listening has brought a lot of peace to my morning. i don't know why. give it a try, if you want.
