Summer sky

At the end of a long day (in which I seem to have injured my foot), it’s so good to be on the Heath with summer sky, sushi and good company.

Hearts and how they open and close

Image via Pinterest

I have so many brilliant friends who have huge, unique, fantastic potential to love and be loved, but haven’t found the opportunity to let it out yet. Have I found it? Does anyone ever find it?

I’m in a cycle of want-to-open-up followed swiftly holy-shit-this-is-terrifying. My capacity to love is constant, but my ability to let others in and accept the world as it is waxes and wanes regularly – often within a single 24 hour period.

As often happens, I’m reminded of Brene Brown’s eye-opening talk on vulnerability. She talks about the excruciating pain that we experience when we open up to being happy as well as being sad.

Just got back from an amazing Wilderness festival. My head and heart are reeling from such a beautiful place… More soon.

Finding it

I don’t have a picture for today’s August Break post, but I do have a quote:

For the meaning of life differs from man to man, from day to day and from hour to hour. What matters, therefore, is not the meaning of life in general but rather the specific meaning of a person’s life at a given moment. Viktor E. Frankl

I know I’m not the only person to wonder what makes up the meaning and purpose of life, but I’m very pleased that others have found the same place I have: that we can find our own meaning. At the moment, the process of finding my meaning is my purpose.

I thought I had no expectations

image

It’s funny how I imagine that I have no expectations and then life turns around and shows me that I did. I expected today to be dramatic and painful, but for it to be over after that. Instead, the process is dragged out, my patience is tested and I’m forced to reconsider and look more closely at how I spend my time taking the next steps. What do I feel today?

St Paul’s

 

A lovely weekend of friends, food and lovely London. Last night, we had a yummy meal in view of St Paul’s, one of my very favourite London landmarks, not only because of its elegant structure, but also its physical and emotional location.

Book Maze

 

We took a walk along the Southbank yesterday to see the sights and show some friends round. I took the opportunity – finally – to get a look at the Book Maze in the Southbank Centre. You’d find it hard to get lost (the maze really isn’t that challenging and you can see over the walls built of books) but you might get lost looking at the thousands of books and titles…

Hearts on squares

Not much today, except to say that I can’t stop listening to this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PbHe7qQGD0Y
