Every day I find myself longing to be "slack." Well, not exactly slack, but at least not overwhelmed. I'd like the freedom to just exist in this life and attend to the more important things: friends, family and taking care of my own space. Instead, I find myself stuck in the rat-race, swinging as hard as I can, trying not to be too far behind, and losing the battle. The weather is turning, I can see spring coming. I want to stand outside in the cool air and sunshine, and be at one with my mother earth. There are many physical things that cry out to be done around the homestead. I have to let them go because of my "responsibilities." I long to just BE.
