Between the tea and the toast

After an exhausting week which included a quick business trip overseas, I've been so relieved to be home this weekend. Sometimes when you're feeling a little beaten down and too tired to think, you don't know what it is you need. Thank goodness the universe often takes care of that for you. Turns out I needed all of these things and I'm so grateful for them:

  • Dinner with my closest girlfriends, in the neighbourhood where it all began 23 years ago.
  • Afternoon naps.
  • Quiet hours reading magazines and blogs.
  • Beautiful music.  Listening to old and latest favourites, discovering new ones.
  • Dinner with new friends (laughter is the best way to describe it)
  • Most of all, being wrapped up in the arms of the man I adore.

This photo was taken from my hotel balcony while I was away. Before the commitments of the day began. Before the phone rang, before emails.  A cup of tea, this sunrise, a few long deep breaths.  Balance.

"Of all the days we've ever had,
it is these quiet days that leave me satisfied the most, when our holy ghosts
have room to dance
between the tea and the toast." *
