When you were small did you ever spin around very fast, arms outstretched? Did you have your eyes open or closed? Did you get dizzy?
Often lately I've felt as if I've been spinning. Sometimes, briefly, I catch a glimpse, but all too often my days are a blur with a pervading sense of speed and imbalance. Is it my age? my present living situation with my heart in two places?
Last week I spent some time with Jerome at our city house and my first full day there we shared nearly all of the day at the Chicago Botanic Gardens. We've been members there since I was given a gift membership by my church circle as a thank you for presenting a plant class. The CBG is often my go to place for centering.
It's my dream that eventually my go to place will be here, my few acres on Asbury Ridge. When the spinning has stopped and my heart's halves are joined, it will be.
