Sun baking

Basking in the winter sun

Let’s give it up for the winter sunshine that has been showing off.

It’s cold but when you’re in the sun the shadows are cast away. Physically and emotionally.

There is something about the sun. About the light hitting all the cold dark spaces and bringing warmth and heat where there was a damp darkness.

Something about feeling parched and taking your first sip of water when your throat has been dry.

The revival.

I’ve been spending a lot of time just taking better care of myself. Winter kind of does that to you.

After the initial shock of the sudden unwelcomed cold, you get your groove and settle into what will be the new normal for the next couple of months.

Everything, at least for me slows down. Except the eating. The eating  increases drastically and leads to necessary weight gain haha.

But everything else, apart from the things you have to do, slows down and goes into a state of awakened hibernation.

It’s scary at first but after you get used to it, it becomes a breath of fresh air. That’s where I am now. In the stillness. On the surface the water is calm and frozen but beneath the surface there is life.

That’s my internal state.

It is hustling and bustling and planning and plotting and finally dreaming again.

I feel like I haven’t dreamt for a long time, but finally the little seeds are starting to sprout and there is hope.

I look forward to the soon coming outpouring of all the things that have been happening on the inside. The physical manifestation of all that I have been working on in the inside.

Remeber when the seed has sprouted is not when the plant comes into being, the work was being done long before, in the depths of the cold hard ground where no one could see. The sprout is only a manifestation of the process that has been happening.
