In the flow….


Another thing that I’d done on my walk yesterday involved standing under a Maple tree trying to catch a little of the sap (dripping from a cut branch) on my tongue. I love doing this and had wished that Jack could try some too. This was at about 8:30 a.m.

Back home, I began to write the post, about saying yes for a month, but couldn’t finish since I needed to meet a friend for tea. I walked into the Roundhouse Café and noticed the glass container…full of sap. Say YES to life and watch how things flow to you…effortlessly…could this be the message here? By 11:30 a.m. , Jack was having his first sip of sap.

So, I’m not quite into my first 24 hrs. of saying yes and this is what has happened:

Last minute dinner invitation last night…yes (lovely, lovely time)

Request to read someone’s book and write a review….yes (haven’t done yet but will begin this weekend)

Request on the blog to write about whether or not I’ve moved yet….yes (within a week)

Invitation to an International Women’s Day meeting…yes


How do I feel?

So happy to be writing and sharing with you. I was up very early this morning and smiled when I read that 4 of you suggested the same book, The Surrender Experiment, by Michael Singer. I think I’m going to have to buy it. Thank you for the suggestion…I am saying YES to it!

  1. Mary for a rather timid, non-taking chances person, I have had the opportunity of going to Art College at the age of 43 (on the suggestion of a friend to whom I said, ‘I couldn’t do that’ and the next morning, I said to myself, ‘if you don’t try, you’ll never know’…and timing was a factor, it happened to be when the school calendar allotted two weeks for student interviews…a guiding hand or energy in my life ?… I was accepted) and then a medical issue following a serious reaction during an operation in 1985 and after, resulting in chemical sensitivities, brought me to the country, a place I’d always wanted to live. It’s a matter of being open to ‘seeing’ opportunities rather than closing your mind and saying, I can’t do this. Sometimes if you try, you can. Mind you, both opportunities brought frustrations I never knew existed.
