Just For Today *Neato*
Looking around the yard and the river just today I really..really noticed that sharing this space supporting *us* with many living creatures, each offering a necessary ingredient that nurtures and sustains the continuation of a whole. Every experience that involves one of *us*, also involves others who also need what the experience may teach. Nature all around.. We are not alone, ever. I am traveling a path in concert with others whose needs are similar to my own. I realized that I expect to discover joyous occasions and will undoubtedly be visited by grief in this travel. The latter is almost being erased by the knowledge that others, too, have known grief. Joy, on the other hand, is doubled in intensity when I acknowledged the occasion..... giving birth to it and then celebrate it with others. No day passes without giving *us* many occasions to shout for joy. Too often, feeling alone and lonely, I close my eyes to the wonders that could excite. The most fruitful lesson I have learned.. JUST FOR TODAY *Neato*... is that I have fellow-travelers among whom joy abounds and multiplies when shared...... My travelers here on DS have ensured that TODAY... I'll look for that bit o' joy in my life. Fuckin' Neato!
