Motherhood, Art, Creative Play, and Finding Joy in Everyday Life

Part of the Rhythm


It seems as though the weather and my state of health are in sync this week. I suppose if I am going to be feeling miserable and trapped inside the house, then the world outside might as well match. The sky is a blanket of grey, and  the road is filled with puddles that twinkle from the splashing drops. The mushrooms across the street seem to be doubling in size each day from this big drink they are getting.

This morning I am finding comfort in a snuggly toddler in fleece pajamas, a cup of strong coffee with some hot cocoa powder stirred in, and a sense of change for the better coming our way. October in Maine can be a dreary and dark month, but it is part of the rhythm of life. We go through the illnesses, the sadness, the anxiety, but we can find joy in the little things, and we can know that life, like the seasons is all about change.

  1. A good reminder to just go with the seasons of change instead of fighting them.

    I imagine Maine in October is about the same as it is here in Washington: cold and wet. Except then we stay cold and wet all season while you get snow.
    (btw: I honeymooned in Camden. LOVE that area!)

    • I am only vaguely familiar with Camden, but most of Maine is beautiful. I do imagine our climates must be similar, just snowier here. I do prefer snow to rain during the winter months.
      As I get older, and especially now that I am a mom, I am learning to accept life, embrace it even, rather than trying to fight with the universe. If I go with the flow i find happiness.
