I’m here at the farm alone today with Sofia and Michelle. In my usual mode, I went from feeling a bit anxious to — tiptoeing, then wading, then immersing myself into the flow of the day. The girls are amazing: They entertain themselves and me, with creative projects such as collecting flowers into a bag or a cup…two overlapping blossoms of red and white greeted me when I opened the gazebo door a while ago. Sofia had brought the flower gift and placed it on the door mat for me to find.
Not much time to write. A moment to reach out to you and whisper “Hello” from the stillness of the rainforest. I want to share two quotes that touched me in the last couple of days, from two friends that sent them to me.
From Helen Keller:
“Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.”
From Gautama Buddha:
“In the end
These things matter most: How well did you love? How fully did you live? How deeply did you let go?”
Michelle just came in and “told on” Sofia…she said, scowling, “Fofia wen’ up-stays.” which I think means that Sofia went upstairs to a place that she is not supposed to go…Girls on their daring adventure…
I wonder who they take after? …. From our adventure to yours, may we all experience peace, love, happiness, health, safety, and goodness…everyone..xoxo
