When grey paints the sky and the dry winds blow, my energy and spirit sag. I’m like limp noodle, dragging and sighing through the day. I’m grateful to have friends like a second cup of tea and my Roomba to help me through those times. A second cup gives me a little extra time and space to breathe and find my start button. Some days are like that and I do the best I can. I know there is no hurry, no rush. Life starts right here in the moment. There is no other place to go to and nothing else to do.
The start button is pushed. I can hear the Roomba whirling around in the kitchen, picking up bread crumbs, dog hair and what-alls. Robots are wonderful. They never sag if you keep them charged. They are not perfect, however, and they can fail. Hopefully those are the times I am charged and can take over.
The skies are greyer and raindrops are falling. I hope it pours. The earth is thirsty. So am I. A third cup of tea is needed.
