Throwback Thursdays are a thing, I'm sure you know, and today I'm taking advantage of the meme for a quick post that not only takes me back to my January-February trip to Rome (the city my daughter, son-in-love, and granddaughter returned to this past weekend) but also shows my current focus on moving toward the light (even though sometimes that means trudging through a long tunnel, even a sustained uphill march!).
Not all the passages are difficult, of course. Today, for example, I intend to clear out a dresser that holds a mix of photographs, stationery, candles, table linens, and garden records; I've also promised myself I'll fill at least three packing boxes with a mix of books, cushions, and linens. Might be a bit too much to do when I get back from the dental appointment I've been putting off for too long. But cleverly, I've booked a late breakfast with a friend right after the yoga class I'm not letting myself skip.
Hmmmm, I just read that day's agenda back to myself, and I might leave the boxes of books, etc. until tomorrow. Pacing,girl, pacing!
