Today was such a relaxing day on Capon Hill. My mom and I went into the co-op and shopped to our hearts content. Then my dad and I went to go to the Ciha Fen down the road (a fen is a floating wetland and it was beautiful today). Then we walked around historic nature places in the middle of nowhere Sutliff. We checked out the old Czech church surrounded my farmland and cattle. With the tiny Czech cemetery across the road. Then we went out and looked at the Sutliff bridge. And a monument to the native people that were the first commuters of our Cedar River. Right after that the faj and I came home to start making dinner bc Nikki and her little guy Max were stopping by! MAX IS SO BIG, the big ole 3 now. He was infatuated with the ducks and chickens so he went out to feed them a lot. So cute! Good family good friends good food good night.
It’s messing people up, this social pressure to “Find your passion” and “Know what it is you want to do”. It’s perfectly fine to just live your moments fully, and marvel as many small and large passions, many small and large purposes enter and leave your life. For many people there is no realization, no bliss to follow, no discovery of your life’s purpose. This isn’t sad, it’s just the way things are. Stop trying to find the forest and just enjoy the trees.
Keeping your body healthy is an expression of gratitude to the whole cosmos — the trees, the clouds, everything.
For every year you took For every soft breath or loving look Believe me
And don’t keep me like you have me And don’t kiss me like you don’t
I got wise and I got old Not once, not once did I fall So don’t you now.”
My fingers are already sore. Baby grand in my hand. Xo.
Sheet music in hand. Tears and keys.
This one’s for the torn down,
the experts at the fall
A little sad road trip music.
