I'm back 🙏

“Be — don't try to become”
― Osho

So, we survived the 400-mile round trip to London.

It was lovely to see my eldest daughter, Evie, and to spend some time in her new flat and to have lunch together in a wonderful Turkish restaurant. 

London can be...amazing at times.

And now?

I'm here.

I'm typing these few words, and feel blessed.

Why?

Because, life, despite its (apparent) contradictions, is still a mind-blowing 'experience'. I know it doesn't always — sometimes never — feel like that but when we're gone, well, we're not here to experience any of it.

Today I'll mostly be catching up with housework, preparing for the week ahead and, yes, going to the gym with my youngest daughter, Florrie. She's really got the bug and I feel privileged to have this time with her. I know in a few years time she'll have left home and will be doing her thing.

I'll spend a bit of time reading and walking the dog but I won't be doing so with any expectation. They will both happen and I'll fully immerse myself in each moment.

What about you?

Do you have any plans? Do share.

I'll check in later for sure; I've missed seeing what everyone's been up. 

Love,

Ju.
