Peas and Quiet
However in the past two years I have come to an honest understanding with myself;
I require a lot of peace.
Just moments sitting in the sun with nothing around me… or being lost in a task and no one saying my name. I chalk it up to a very peace-free childhood… either way now that I know this, my life has improved. I need a lot of drama-free space. I have had to go to great lengths to walk away from relationships and activities which, perhaps others can handle and take on the chin, are too toxic for me. I once thought this meant I was weak… now I know it has nothing to do with that.
However often times I can’t just sit in the sun… So gardening alone and smelling the earthiness while I clip the spinach… cooking with just music in the background, all smells and notes swirling and cocooning me… painting a quick recipe card and being lost in the way the paints mix…these things feed my soul. They let me connect with something bigger then myself.
Because no matter how I love peace and quiet…and I do… I really love hearing… I mean Hearing….
