I am hoping this may be my last photograph in my living room wherein you see the walls painted Indian crimson. Any day now, ANY day! I am painting this sunny, hummy room a very lovely pale shade of turquoise. I can't believe it has taken me so long to decide but oftentimes the soul must have it's way in it's articulation of color and finding an elusive, most perfect tint is something you have to sit down and wait for until you feel it so strongly enough that you are moved to act. Was that a run on sentence? I think so but nonetheless, turquoise it is. I can't wait to share it with you.
Oh, this was such a perfect, one of a kind weekend. I gathered up my little tribe of (almost grown) children (including my son's girlfriend) and we headed up the sea to sky highway to Whistler for a few days of looking at trees, admiring waterfalls, embarking on enthralling hikes and eating lots of happy meals in a little tree house in the sky by the side of the mountain. One afternoon I experienced such a gorgeous swim in a silky, glacial glinty, mountain lake ~ I slipped into the icy realm and just kept gliding through the water with a sharp intake of my breath, heart pounding, (sensing things running much deeper than the surface), no voice, no thoughts just pure grace of movement, sun glints on my skin, my hair flowing auburn beneath the jade green. Most exhilarating in it's sensual freedom, a sort of ancient ecstasy.
Beautiful, beautiful! My eyes barely registered the sandy beach fading into a handful of emerald forests swept up into the arms of mountain. The experience felt like a love letter to my body, the way yoga feels at it's very best when the mind and body yolk some raw essence deep within. But far lovelier really, with all the mysterious water, a primal birth of soul.
Autumn is singing songs of blueberry berets, pumpkin pancakes and spicy lattes in the sweet air and I am a jumble of poetry and jazz and stray summer blossoms. A little note for your consideration ~ the cut off date for the October registrations of 'my sweet muse' and 'infinite love' daily love letters is September 22 as I will be departing shortly after for England and fully intend to be offline for the most part. Hooooopla!
pst! Eliza and Madelyn ~ so awesome!
