On this, the last day of summer camp, we picnicked in the park. The girls climbed the tiny tree they've grown to love. They played their favorite silly game, where each tree turns them into either a princess or a dragon or a circus clown or any number of other things. They walked through the park in character, giggling and roaring and prancing.
All the while, my thoughts ran through the school shopping list. This is limbo: the last days of summer before kindergarten. I really have to step up my meditation practice to keep from missing all the fun with thoughts of what size fall jacket might, just might still fit in the spring.
Present moment... only moment. Present moment... only moment.... ohm.
