June was a long month for me. Did it seem that way to you? The fabulous Dr. Brian Cox, as well as Dr. Brian Greene (hmmm ... are all physicists named Brian?) like to explain that the way each of us cuts through time/space in the course of our daily activities creates a serious impact on our perceptions of "reality," including our perception of the fourth dimension. Ain't it the truth?
June was a month of huge internal shifts and changes for me, so no wonder the first part of the month flew by, while the weeks surrounding solstice dragged. Solstice was a bitch this year. Whoa. I was a wreck for awhile; lower than a snake's belly, as my friend Lisa used to say. She also used to say sometimes that she felt lower than dog's breakfast. You can't get much lower than that, can you? Lisa was from Austin, Texas, where she picked up many charming colloquialisms.
During the past few days, at last, time is moving faster again. I guess that's a good thing. Now it's July. For the next couple of weeks, all that internal movement will shake out into the external realm as I make the transition into my new apartment.
Cheryl, of the blog Lizzy Frizzrock, suggested that I place boxes in a spiral around my room, one for papers and art supplies, one for clothing, one for books, etc. In this way I am now able to literally dance the spiral as I unwind this chapter of my life. Cheryl, you are a genius. It's really working!
Fall down once, get up twice. Will do! My optimism is returning. Shalom.
