today is a good day..............

there is an american indian saying "today is a good day to die". i understand the feeling of this, and today when i walked my meditation as the sun rose, i thought "today is a good day to live".

stress is a son of a bitch, isn't it? can take your body and twist it into pain. can bend your mind to places best not gone. can make the quiet enjoyment of being alive...undoable.

my simplistic reaction on this day is to let the stress go. walking the meditation, breathing the world into myself. today i want to be present to what gives me joy.

i hope that as the day progresses, that i am able to hold this in my heart and honor it. the world is a trickster sometimes - smiles.

in a while i will go to honor a friend's life. i will do the eulogy. at first i thought i should write down notes of all the things he had done and all the people he had touched. but i don't think i will. instead, i will stand and let the magic of J's life flow through me and if the words come, they will come.

the little bird will be with me. i think it will be fine. it will at least be real.

i'm wearing red - leave it to J to define my wardrobe - lol. then we will all go to the ocean and swim - luckily it is warm today.

today is a good day.

go out and celebrate it.

You cannot conceive the many without the one.

When " today is a good day to die" is spoken aloud it's before the day is attacked for all that it may bring to us, what no one hears is the silent " to morrow would be better ".

Sweetgrass and sage burns for you and yours.


wickedeasy replies on 9/9/2006 3:16 pm:
i don't think so - i think that when it is spoken aloud, it is because it is understood that today is the day that the spirit will leave and an affirmation of the rightness of the universe in choosing this day over another

thank you for the burning sage and sweetgrass

Now taking nominations for a feelthy cranium and/or an early Halloween …

If 'ifs' and 'buts' were candy and nuts what a party we'd have!

I like your attitude. Celebrate a life, rather than mourn a death.
