I have lost a lot over the last ten years. Loss strips life away to the essentials. And that helps us see and value the essentials.
Some of these essentials are shelter, food, clothing, family, friends, and nature.
Another, if we are lucky, is our life- and romantic partner.
And this amazing human body with its senses and ability to take in our surroundings.
Who we are and the wholeness and richness of who we are as a human being in the world.
The adventure inherent in life and being a human being in the world.
The quiet bliss inherent in just being.
Noticing what we are – that which all of these experiences happen within and as.
And there is always yet another.
