Not all days are cloudy. This has been a gorgeous weekend full of sunshine, blooms, reconnecting with old friends, and peace.
I wish there were more of these soft and sweet days and that they could last longer. I know that’s the nature of life – the ebb and flow. Every spring, always after the spring solstice, when the evening walks home still have bright rays of daylight and then some, there is always a point when I can almost viscerally feel the fog clear. The clouds break. The warmth of the sun penetrates into my soul and allows me to take a deep, cleansing breath. It isn’t permanent. It still takes a while to get back to homeostasis, to a more constant state of “up,” but there is nothing like that first deep, unlabored, freeing breath.
In these mellow, reflective, grateful moments, especially after a period of being sucked so far down into the grey depths, I think of that old Velvet Underground song.
“Sometimes I feel so happy
Sometimes I feel so sad”Music for the Mood: Pale Blue Eyes – The Velvet Underground
One thought on “Spring in these pale blue eyes”
Gratitude is extremely important in our mental health. I had to start a gratitude journal because I would so often forget the things I was truly grateful for, especially in my weaker moments. Those flowers are beautiful!!! 💐
