Cancer This Week – True Love

Happy Valentine Daze, Cancerian! After meditating about what advice would be most valuable for your love life in the coming months, I decided on this challenge from poet William Butler Yeats: “True love is a discipline in which each divines the secret self of the other and refuses to believe in the mere daily self.” In other words, create in your imagination a detailed picture of your loved ones at their best. Each day, make it a point to feel joy and gratitude for their most excellent beauty and power — as well as the beauty and power that are still ripening and will one day appear in full bloom.

I think this is what I always do this in the beginning. I think most of us do. It’s keeping it alive when the daily gets overwhelming that is the trick.

It’s not the first thing on my mind these days. Spring, getting a new job, my camera is breaking up and acting weird. Still stalling on projects, watching Foyle’s War a lot as the netflix come in and go out, other Brit mysteries on streaming when they aren’t here.

What I really want to do is rip out the 30 year old carpet in my bedroom (what a dust/mite/dirt magnet, yeuck) and paint the walls a lovely spring green and put up my yellow and green striped curtains from my cottage in the woods. *sigh*

What I really want to do is skip down the street singing songs (oy my knees)

What I really want to do is be Forest Grove full time… 😉

Ah well, they are the things of dreams, except perhaps the skipping down the street part. I can get there, I need to get my creaky self outside and start walking those hills again. Spring is here and it’s light until 5:30, no good excuse.

Tra la tra la.

  1. I’ve been chomping at the bit to get things done too, I have to keep reminding myself — baby steps — one little step at a time towards what you want gets you there in the long run. Silly tortoise and hare fable being right… mumble…

    Between you and my friend Joy my head is going to get too big! But I will accept the wonderful compliment nonetheless!

    Blessings upon you!
