"Adopt the peace of nature: her secret is patience." Ralph Waldo Emerson
The transition of living with someone else in the house and then being all alone, still has me rather disoriented and a little sad.
I spent a lovely evening with a couple of friends, eating, drinking, talking, playing games, and well just making merry. I still had difficulty falling asleep, even though I had a nice evening. I have been exercising at the gym (yes I found a new one I like since my old gym fell to ruin) and then going for a swim, which usually wears me out for a good nights sleep.
I am not feeling peaceful, I think. I am feeling fidgety and unsatisfied. A gentle rain has begun to fall, and while I was hoping to go to the pool to swim today, as there are not many days left to swim, the rain seems to be bringing with it a sense of peace for me. I actually like a nice rainy day every now and then. The flowers in the garden have been so thirsty. Maybe I have been thirsty for a nice rain too.
So I will finish up at work, then enjoy the rain, while reading a good book and having a cup of tea. Maybe tonight the sleep will come easier.
