A clearing after the storm

Log Jam

I can’t attribute it to any one thing, but perhaps a combination of circumstances.

Less fast food after the crowd departed.

Checking out Andrew Weill’s personalized vitamins.

Substituting ice tea for diet coke. (Yes, I did find the tea maker).

Some meditation, some exercise.

Moments of sun are starting to break through, and that is very, very nice.

Chinese calligraphy, here I come!

What puzzles me is the inner motivation.  Why now? Why in this way? Why all of a sudden does the fierce resistance to change inside start to modulate, like a log jam breaking apart and letting the wood float downstream?

I don’t know, but I do know the forward movement feels good after so many months of being stuck in the slow, non-moving traffic lane.

  1. “…like a log jam breaking apart and letting the wood float downstream”. Such a visual and apt metaphor! Something always jolts us out of our complacency sooner or later. Otherwise, we shrivel and die.

  2. ‘Glad to hear you are out of the slow, non-moving traffic lane. Moving around and seeing as much as you can is a much better option.

    I have started a change of my own as well. I think it may be permanent, but then only time will tell
