Today I am bones. 
Rattling, rummaging bones.

SHAKEN to stand on my own two feet.

Tomorrow I am bones.
Steady, sturdy, walking bones.

For the Fans

WE FINALLY HAVE OUR OWN WIFI!!  And a few minutes that I'm using to be totally unproductive.  My troublesome list of tasks can wait.  I have a chile cheese tamale in my belly, a Hansen's pomegranate by my side, and a collection of memories I've captured on my phone camera.

Enjoy these few moments in time as I enjoy a few more of my own.

There's a mockingbird's nest in our orange tree in the backyard.  The mother bird perches herself on a nearby rooftop.  She's ready and fiercely cries out when we get too close.  She's gone only a few moments throughout the day to find food. 

And then she's back.  Feeding.  Protecting her family and her home.

I've had a tiresome week.  Too many hours spent working.  Too many boxes to unpack.  Too many hours spent feeling frustrated that there's only 24 hours in a day.

I watch that bird every morning and I'm envious of simplicity.
Simply, deep breaths. 
Simply, one moment at a time.

Monday Motivators

I'm coming up for air. Deep breaths and full eyes. It's madness and bliss. This sweet stirring of movement. Time and a solid wifi signal patiently wait for the dust to settle. I hope you can too. :) P.S. I'm finally now on (and addicted!!) to instagram. (@actualizingamy) Let's catch up!
