Thinking Out Loud…

It’s raining today, which I enjoy, as we all know that April showers bring May flowers and I am excited for color to return to my life! I was reading the new book out by Frances Mayes called Women In Sunlight. She also wrote the book “Under The Tuscan Sun”.  I would read for a while and then just sit quietly and let my mind wander to wherever this book wanted to take me. The author has such a descriptive way of writing as to make you feel as if you are part of the story, walking the hills of Tuscany.  Her descriptions were often on food and the simple life the people there live, connected to the earth and good wine and people, always the people. They seem to make it a daily ritual to live life fully and enjoy life from all perspectives. This is what attracts me to her books that share another way to approach life. I think we here in America are sorely lacking this aspect to living. Enjoying the moments life offers.

As always happens with me I start taking my thoughts apart in search for the nugget of truth that lies somewhere at the core. What was my soul starving for that this book was fulfilling within me? It led me to a central question that I cannot answer. “Why do we celebrate everything here in America, even death and tragedy, but we do not have a major holiday for LIFE! The Tuscan’s celebrate life everyday through their food designed to bring people together around tables, their connection to each other that they celebrate and to the land. Each moment they celebrate it is done with gusto and from the heart. We celebrate earth day and the next day we are ripping down forests and saturating the soil with poison etc. We celebrate for the party side of it but it does not come from the true heart, not for many anyway, it holds a shallow meaning. We do NOT fully honor life, it has not become a part of our rituals, so I ask why not?

Why does life mean so little to us that we don’t even honor it in celebration annually or everyday as it should be?  We seem to honor death more than life. Time to rearrange the deck chairs on America’s sinking ship. It is time to re-prioritize and detour into a new direction. If each spring new life emerges and begins to unfold in beauty then let spring be the time to celebrate life every year! A stop the presses type of holiday, no post office, street parties etc. Life should be honored in the most highest of all the holidays we partake in. First and foremost it should out shine all others for without life we would not be! We definitely need new minds running Washington inspiring humanity to become the best it can be in every way we dare to create. It does seem impossible seeing as how Washington and politics in general are so corrupt and closed-minded, un-evolved and incapable of creating anew,  but we can hope and we can have faith and we can manifest and we can deliver our deepest desires. We just have to come together and begin to move forward again with reverence…

Blessings to all,

  1. Sounds a great read, and I agree. Life should be celebrated every day, Like Earth Day, every day is special.. The problem is not many live life in the moment.. They are too busy living in the past and to worried about the future, So Now passes them by and before you know it its too late..
    Spring is an excellent reminder of renewal and replenishing .. If only we humans acted more like Mother Nature..
    Glad I caught this post before my bedtime VK..
    Enjoy the Sun… ❤ xx LOVE and hugs my friend xx

    • It is just stunning to think how long we have all been told how and what to think right down to what holidays will be recognized. God forbid we should get connected to one another more closely and appreciate life! Hard to keep control over us then. I don’t know how we teach people to appreciate life. I would think that has to come naturally from within but people’s within’s are filled with nonsense….We’ll get there DW….Hope you have dirt under your nails….Hugs and love VK ❤
