It must be the darkening of the days and the rain … I’m going so slowly that people think I’m going backwards.
I’ve finished all my contracts and am giving myself time to do the slow things in life …. sleep in … read … sit by the fire and have no big thoughts … cook stews … knit ….
That’s it really.
I don’t feel like the faster things such as big groups or parties or too much noise.
Time to recharge and just feel the slowing down of the seasons.
And in my slowing down I’m taking my time to even get the broadband/computer thing fixed … I don’t feel like writing every day.
Wandering into Dee’s office and just writing this is enough for me.
Tomorrow I will upload some lovely photos of Ballinamore Main and High street … and some sunshine shots from a few weeks ago.
And in case anyone thinks that slowing down is like sliding down into a dark place … nah.
I know the difference between slowing down and slipping into a malaise.
We tend to live our lives at a pace that can be really fast … and for me slowing down is a great relief … and a space to just wander for a while.
Lifes pace always picks up … either from external causes … or because I’ll make it happen.
Just for now I want to be slow and quiet … and the beauty of the life I’ve created is … that I can.
So … hope you’re well and happy.
I’m going to wander off now.
Ballinamore weather today … dry and cloudy clear … chilly and crisp. A nice change from the last 2 days of drizzle and cold.
