near sigthtedness

Dearest friends,

I just got my glasses prescription renewed on Tuesday, and got the call from BJs that my new glasses came in.  I went to pick them up excitedly...because they are so pretty.  I love the intricate design around the lenses--almost like wrought iron.

I started thinking about sight...
While my prescription is for my far sighted inability (ironically similar to my life), my "near sightedness" --that is, near to my heart-- I am working on too.  seeing without the eyes is just as important.  Having the ability to look into yourself and focus--allowing what is blurry and obscure to come into view and clarity is crucial to our own inner survival.  

Elizabeth Gilbert is my own inner-optometrist.  Her life-story is opening clarity into my own.

Love Always,

HI Amanda!
Pretty, pretty glasses!
Yes, as your grandfather always says... "Know who you are" and all else falls into place ...
How's the heat over there? I hope it's getting cooler...
We've had a huge thunderstorm here... we got home 5 minutes too late to take my clothes off the line... the electricity went out twice... candles are lit just in case they go out a third time!
love you lots ♥
