today is (gentleness)


(I am still enjoying the heck out of combining the August Break and the 30 Day Journal Project prompts. And I'm on my computer so I can hyperlink to them! You're welcome!)

Today is...

reading, coffeeing, listening (to silence), selfie-ing, remembering, creating, editing, writing, eating.

Gentleness is...

reading, ice teaing, writing, cleaning, basking, poeming, remembering, listening, loving, touching, singing.

Today is (gentleness)...

rereading a novel because it thrills me. watering myself to stay hydrated. having the fan on overhead. sitting at my desk, being on the computer for the first time in a week, but limiting myself to a small time frame so I don't get exhausted. cleaning a little bit more of the house. poeming it out, later. making my triple exposure for the day, using these prompts, connected, intertwined. picking Rem up from camp in a few hours. singing in the car on the drive over. listening to silence in the house. hugging my love when he gets home from work. remembering our trip last year to thailand, because doing a retrospective is fun, right now. loving myself, my family, the world. basking in the summer. eating lunch after some coffee. feeling grateful not to be so sick anymore. still needing gentleness so that my lungs can fully heal.

yes, today is gentle. bronchitis kicked my ass in july, but now it is only a lingering cough (which is more asthma than anything else, I don't feel sick anymore), and so I am gentle. this is good. very good.
