Japanese Tea Garden, Golden Gate Park
Drinking Darjeeling tea while going through some of my photos.
I'm noticing differences between being away on my trip and being at home. I feel more hurried here, my pace quickens. On my trip, I breathed deep at changes and took one moment at a time. I was so aware each moment of how I felt, what I needed, and where I was. I want to keep that mentality here at home.
Mum and I spent a lot of time while driving listening to this cd. I also read some of the Tao Te Ching and found it so encouraging for dealing with changes, the unexpected, and for being more present with what was happening, not what I wished were happening.
