This week has been like being in a washing machine on the fastest, most mental cycle. I was on a trip for five days visiting family, during which time 2 members of my family suddenly passed away. This is the first time in my life something sudden has happened to people I know. It exemplifies why I started the bead movement in the first place as you never know how much time you have left, ever. One minute you are eating cookies and making travel plans and a few hours later a cataclysmic heart attack puts paid to all your best laid plans. Its shocking how fast it all can happen although we know it in theory, seeing it all up close and personal is disconcerting.
Between family mournings, flights, talking on a panel at a conference, presenting my show, writing 6 TV shows, attending the opening of a PR company, negotiating a contract for Feathers and helping my grandmother on a move out of her house where she has lived for the past 60 years, this week has been extraordinary. I have had a couple times where I have had to focus on the eagle and soar out of it to regain my strength before diving back in but ultimately I have been reacting and feeling each situation I’ve been in.
I’m afraid I’m still too much very much in the eye of it all to offer any deep introspective thoughts and insights on things, perhaps next week enlightened thought on all this will have dawned but for the time being I’m simply breathing and dipping into tubs of ice cream whenever necessary.live in the moment, Mhairi Morrison, The bead movement
