Today's been a day of beautiful sensations... a brief walk around the park in the 60-degree weather, kids swarming the park waiting for the Easter egg hunt to start, other kids lining up to take their picture with the Easter bunny.... walking home from the library with so many books they wouldn't all fit in my backpack... finding that a sprig of cilantro in our fridge had flowered, we stuck it in a glass with some pink chysanthemums and it matches... riding home with our tuned-up bikes from the bicycle shop... resting on the porch and sleeping late... chalking a heart in my driveway and seeing that my 5-year old neighbor needed to express herself in a similar way.
Tonight we're going to Easter Vigil mass and singing. There's something terribly thrilling about being present when people are getting baptized and confirmed, and when so many voices are lifted in joyous song that everything vibrates: the floor, my songbook of sheet music, the air around me.
According to my SARK calendar, today is Self Love Day!
Things I love about myself:
My inability to stay very sad (or mad) for very long
I’m not afraid to be myself
My hair (however wild and unruly it may be)
My green eyes
Being able to express myself well by:
Dancing to any kind of music, not well, but usually without embarrassment (I once danced alone at a weddingbecause they were playing Rainbow Connection and I could have cared less who was watching… I was eventually joined by three other like-minded souls and we were applauded at the end of the song!)
