Yesterday ; we are on a journey!

February 2, 2015

Yesterday we booked our flights to Rio de Janeiro to visit our beloved youngest daughter.  Mostly, It is was a momentous occasion. However,  it was a little disconcerting for my husband particularly; as the cost even with the so called reductions due to the oil prices was still more than he hoped! So this put a damper on the event for a moment or two.

Then for me, the count down towards the visit is bitter sweet; while I long for the day of our arrival, our subsequent departure also looms painfully!

So I am learning to be measured as regards the future-ness of it all and try to make each moment before as joyful as those we spend in Rio! So the next five months will be part of the journey ; I hope!

So this morning, the day begins clear, blue with tinge of pink … a pot of pu’erh and some mixed media; somehow there is a theme of tea … how can this be?

So AJ we are on the way … the journey begins today.

    I too have the ‘looming departure’ blues when my beloved son flies back to Dubai… I have been trying to plan something really special for myself immediately after he leaves…something that reminds me that I am still ME…it’s really hard…good luck!

      Yes … It seems we must allow ourselves to be kind to ourselves … I come from a generation who ‘must grin and bear it’ stiff upper lip and all that … so it is hard as you say … Love to you !
