It never really came, but it will:) , I hope. I have to say I was dreading a bit of cold weather. I still am just a bit, but…..really enjoying it. In Puerto Rico, our windows are shutters, there are no screens at my Abuela Maria’s house and the chickens would come and go. I loved when the breeze would make the curtain’s flow and the openness of the house. We don’t have heaters for sure in the house or ac. That is really a luxury. To connect with nature:)
Thus I haven’t added screens to the studio, love the windows open, and well the heater…..That is just new. Maybe not that big a deal to many. Big deal to me:) Huge!
It used to take so long to warm up the studio, but now…… In just a few minutes and it is ready for me to sit and be.
The space is open, the heater is keeping me warm and I get to observe all of Mother Nature around me and I just love this little space. So quaint, so real. I love the flaws that make it just perfect. I see so much with Winter eyes.
I see areas I want to touch up on, I see areas that just work and I see areas I don’t like. It is so refreshing.
There is something about turning inward. Turning inward is the place of knowledge.
I am hoping for snow soon, just so we can all be forced to turn inward more. So much fear within the cabin fever scene. But b/c we were not born with fur, I strongly think that Mother Nature has intended us to reconnect and re ground with her. What better way than with the silence of snow? It is so silent that when you walk on the snow covered ground you can hear just the most beautiful echo of your step. But only if you move mindfully enough.
Maybe for a moment. Face North. Re Ground. And then take one step towards Love.
