Sheer Loveliness. Our world is built out of that. Our faces and bodies. And our friendships, Blog-Buddie-ness included. Thank you for adding your sweetness!
Here comes one of those unabashedly mushy posts from Rose. Uh-oh. I can’t help myself and don’t even want to.
Because this morning I need to remember how this world is still full of goodness. Kindness.
Even good manners, on the whole.
There I was, out on my driveway this morning. Doing the usual morning prayers, embracing the gorgeous day.
A glorious day!
When a jogger passed right in front of me.
“Hello,” I said with a smile.
“Nothing” said she. Actually, the athletic young woman was probably listening to something more personal. Or at least more electronic.
However, I continued doing my morning prayers. And like any Technique Time, that never fails to bring up…
A few minutes later, I was still doing various RES techniques. Outside in the fresh air, enjoying my neighborhood.
Ha, my neighbor across the street came out! Before she got into her car, “Hello,” I said with a smile.
“Nothing” said she.
What kind of wacky world is this anyway?
Hadn’t this woman ever heard of “Love thy neighbor”?
No, she’s not my client in search of Enlightenment. Or, even, a bit of spiritual awakening.
Nonetheless, she is my flesh-and-blood neighbor. Wish I didn’t have to turn elsewhere for sweetness when I that deep down she’s got a heart of gold.
Frankly, I insist upon it. And so I do find it.
Have any of you other Blog-Buddies noticed that lately many people seem to have forgotten their manners? Such easy little words, “Please” and “Thank You”! Words that wipe some of the dust off of life’s loveliness.
No matter. Today I’ll continue to find loveliness. Because I’ll insist upon doing that kind of real-life treasure hunt.
Given my very fortunate life, that’s easy. Beautiful things are all over my home. Including a better-than-thing, a person I love; he is sharing life with me every single day, which is quite amazing if only I pause to notice!
Sheer loveliness unfolds in my little pink office. As I continue to write website edits for the complete redesign — coming soon. And I marvel at what designer AJ is creating. For me and for all who come to rose-rosetree.com. It’s going to be fun to announce that switchover to the newly designed website. Sometime this month, probably.
Loveliness and better communication. That’s what I’m expecting to offer here.
But for here and now, no waiting is needed. Talk about sheer loveliness! Client sessions will arrive later today, including someone I’ll get to meet for the first time. A person sparkling with loveliness for me to discover.
And already my morning has included two adorb emails. (Including the one from you, Gladys, who definitely and intelligently feels new hope.)
Even If It’s Not Quite a Musical Comedy
Admittedly, this is what I expect. Every day. That my life turns into a musical comedy.
Kinda expecting, improbably, that I’ll say “Bon jour” and then even the busiest passerby will say back “Hello! Bon jour!”
And soon we’ll be singing and dancing together. Comedy and love songs all day, every day.
Yes, every single day, that is what I expect. I don’t expect heaven, no no! Rather, I expect to find myself in a really tuneful musical comedy.
Silly of me. Clearly demonstrating that I’m not especially well adjusted to Earth School.
Funny me. Constantly shocked, shocked! Because random people have cares of their own and don’t act as though we’re all in a musical comedy.
Hey, that minor bit of “Why not?” won’t stop me. Won’t keep me from working hard. And playing hard. Every single day.
Better believe it: I’ll seek out the truth and find it, even when that beauty isn’t so obvious. Because, in big ways and small, my life is dedicated to…
Surely you’ve got oodles of it, too, Blog-Buddies. Already, by this time today, where have you found some loveliness?
