Last night: guitars and giggles.
This morning: coffee and dirty dishes.
What gets me out of bed also gets me back to my blog. I've let several weeks slip by without posting or even flickr-ing. I've barely picked up my camera this year. I guess 2012 is not the year I finally commit to a daily photo project. And that's OK.
One of George's and my favorite movies is The Story of Us (it's right up there with Fight Club and 28 Days Later). My favorite scene is when Bruce Willis and Michele Pfeiffer are laying in bed with their two sleeping babies and he says to her, "All that matters is right here in this bed."
That is exactly how I feel right now. Everything that matters is right here - digging in the garden, gathering around the dinner table, rearranging furniture to watch movies, playing guitars, singing loud and off key, reading books at bedtime and again when we wake up, sending silly texts from one room to another. I'm documenting very little of it, but absorbing every moment of it. It's all that matters.
The only resolution I made for this year is to take a step in the direction of my heart's desire every single day. Nine days in and so far, so good. I've cleaned out closets to create space and order. I've planted shrubs and trees to create beauty and shade. I've rearranged rooms to create function and flow. I've scrapped projects and put others on hold to create time and freedom. My heart desires simplicity.
Right now, my son desires breakfast, but before I go, I just wanted to say Hi. And for those of you who have gone Paleo this year, Well Done! I fully intend to return with recipes, but if I don't show up here for a few days or more, now you know what I'm up to. It's all good.
