I love you! I exuberantly anticipated this September because of my brilliant new vision. Aside from all the sentimental nostalgia associated with my favorite summer month, the magically low humidity and sunny days were exhilarating. Cool mornings, warm days, cool evenings. I always sigh when these glorious days unfold, fully appreciating each precious moment.
The full moon on the last official day of summer lit up the harbor, pre-dawn, in dazzling, sparkling ripples on the water. What a joyful way to greet the sun, with the light of the moon.
I will long remember the entire month of September 2021 as days as “big as years.” My new clear eyesight made every walk full of awe. Every domestic detail became a meditation. Seeing clearly, with vibrant colors, exaggerated my sense of wonder at the pleasure I feel at simple beauty. Doing the dishes in the kitchen sink, looking out at the garden, in the sunshine, I felt light and airy. The running water on the blue Dawn dishwashing liquid creates a heap of rainbows in the bubbles. Timing is everything. “Be here now.” I felt the joy of being just where I was; as my kitchen timer ticked away, along with my heart and breath, I was giggly, content as I watched the bubbles burst.
