Entries in soul aperture (2)
i would have all the time i wanted, to sit in prayer. inviting light and love into my life. remembering those without and accepting suchness and stillness, to lead my day.
i would shake the sleep and stars from my eyes, and shower beneath one of those outdoor showers. many island properties, have these beautiful showers, nestled beside their homes. and since were speaking of perfect- i would choose to live my perfect day, in Hawaii- with a beautiful outdoor shower, with a pull string and all.
yes, Hawaii. ; )
i would sit down with pen in hand. no writers block and the words would flow, freeing my soul of poetry and prose. finally finishing the book, that has lived in my heart, for so long.
writing love notes to those i love
my doggie at my feet
reading cookbooks like novels
i would grab my camera, as the sun began to dance on the water, and i would invite, life, to find it’s way through my lens.
a little thrift store shopping wouldn't hurt, so why not? ; )
maybe a bike with a basket to fill with flowers
heading to the market, fresh fruit and vegetables would make their way, into my bag. and or course flowers.
the day could include rain, that would certainly be alright. i love rain.
i would lazily head back home, stopping to talk to friendly faces, and giving vacationers my opinion of the best restaurant on the island. i would smile at the thought of my days as a chef, sweetly traded in, for my love of writing and photography.
deep sigh, for beauty.
i would hear my family’s laughter before i saw them, as i approached home. our home with the big, wrap around porch. we would spend time in the kitchen, making vanilla bean and macadamia nut, puff pancakes. we would look into one another’s faces, keep up with all sorts of different conversations and break off pieces of pancake for our dog, miles. my day wouldn't be complete, without my family and miles.
there would be a hammock waiting for my husband and i out back, with books stacked beside it, just in case we wanted to read, ourselves into an afternoon nap.
as the sun went down, we would dip grilled pineapple, into melted caramel, and speak about the friends who we missed.
days that seemed as though they would never end
Aloha, my friends.
thank you, Kim! you are the sweetest, for inviting me over, to dream and gather, what i feel would be, the perfect day. xo
all textures, are by kim. ; )
