Today has been a very introspective day... It is overcast and sort of glum, but beautiful in a stark, end of wintery sort of way...
Elysia's mom is up visiting some friends, and we decided to go out for brunch together. When we arrived at our usual brunch place, we were surprised to find out that it no longer existed... it had changed ownership, and no longer offered Sunday brunch.. sort of an end to an era, I guess you would say... we had been going to this place for brunch on special occasions for about seventeen or eighteen years, now. But, in the way that these things seem to work, one of the workers in the new place suggested another place, not too far down the road, and off we went in search of it.
We found the place with no problem, and hit it off at once with the staff, and with the other guests... we were all wisecracking and laughing our asses off as we enjoyed our brunch.
I was somewhat less expressive today, not because I am down or sad... I'm not.. I am just sort of still today. I think that what all this really means, by which I mean my recent step towards a more spiritual focus in my life, may be sinking in. I have a great deal of work ahead of me... and a tremendous amount to learn. I am excited about it, and looking forward to it, but, I think that I have entered the calm before the storm at this point, and I am taking account of my inner resources and preparing both my mind and my spirit for what is to come.
In a little while, I will be heading out to work, and I wont be getting in until late tonight... so for me, at least, my weekend is more or less over with right about now... That sucks, but, in order to enjoy another weekend, I have to get through another week!
