What a funny title for me to post...as if I plan everything out so carefully and fulfill those specifications with well timed regularity.
From sea to shining sea I suspect no one was planning on quite the weather that has been going on. In California it is a dry and early spring, though today there were some sprinkles. I have read reports and heard tales of snow aplenty and lots of troubles in other regions. We've got peach blossoms and a drought to face.
But it isn't weather that is rearranging the calendar of my current intentions, it is a health need.
Sometimes it is hard to get lined up with life having its own way. We have our ways of insulating ourselves from the facts of life. Other times the mandates given leave little to no room for choice. I think of a particular friend who has been given a very fast introduction to how fleeting life is. He does still have choice, of course, for he and she who loves him, are choosing to face each day's troubles with faith. It takes courage.
So what do I want to share here? I'm being given some healing treatments that take a fairly large commitment to complete. I don't want to do the math on five afternoons a week for 60 treatments,but I believe it will take me pretty close to summer. I have to fence a bit with myself, to get into the right stance, to really take it on in a spirit of gratitude.
When I got back today from my two hours in a closed chamber I ran to the back yard to look and see if the peach tree was still lovely. Everything passes and changes so quickly in spring. Maybe relinquishing this spring to needs of my body will quicken my sense of how precious time is...maybe I will be more productive, less wasteful, of the fragile precious commodity...life.
