This photo was taken by my husband when we were in Barcelona in May. Happy times, for sure.
I think I may be experiencing a let down after such a marvelous 3 weeks in Europe. Back to the same ol' same ol'. Granted, my 'same ol' is pretty damn good, and I know that. Honestly.
I can list a number of things that have got me feeling down and defeated. But the particulars are not of any importance. Something, clearly, broke the camel's back yesterday and I experienced the dreaded explosion.
But Saturday night we will celebrate under the full moon, and Sunday we have a birthday lunch with the family. Order will be restored. Flexibility and durability are just around the corner. I can feel it.
I do, of course, recognize that I have much to be glad about, grateful for, and content with. The Dharma says there is the duality of the eight worldly conditions: Profit and Loss, Success and Failure, Praise and Blame, Pleasure and Pain. This week I fell off the Middle Way path. Sometimes it is difficult to walk it, but who said it was easy?
Here's hoping you have a good weekend, with plenty of ease.
