Guess what?  It’s still hot here.  We were out in it.  Twice.  First, on the bikes, and then later in the car.  We have now arrived safely home, but with mere moments to get this post up.

             The main reason we are tardy is probably the best excuse ever invented: new baby!  Yesterday we woke up to this image on my wee cellular device.  Following in her auntie’s footsteps, my brother’s oldest daughter had an emergency cesarean section delivery.

A day early and with much adventure, but no worse for the wear.

             Mom and baby are doing fabulously well.  We went to see them.  In person.  They are both ridiculously healthy.  Yipee!

             They will be going home tomorrow or the next day.  I’ll share more pictures and news when we visit again.

             For now, in order to get this posted on time, we need to move on with our business.  The message I woke up with was accompanied by a dream full of images and impressions more vivid than any I’ve had in quite a long time.

Our human-ness makes us all beautifully flawed.

             Except perhaps my niece’s daughter.  Because let me tell you, a one day old baby is pretty damn close to as perfect as it gets.

“Revealing Radiance  ~

My light illuminates the world.

Card Meaning:

There is a luminosity within you that is expanding.  It illuminates others and brings light to the darkness   Your radiance also acts as a sacred beacon that calls the bounty and support of the Universe to you.

The Universe wants you to know:

Even if you’ve been feeling lackluster lately, know that there’s a vibrant, shimmering light radiating within you.  Take time to be still and welcome the light revealing itself to you.

Own your radiance, and the rays will expand into the farthest reaches of time and space.  When you shine brightly from your heart, the bounty of the Universe showers you with blessings.  You are the light.

Questions to ask yourself:

How can I shine even more brightly?  Who helps me shine, and who dims my light?  What do I need to clear out my life so that I can shine even brighter?

My light illuminates the world.”

             How absolutely ideal for our day!  Also, I love the imagery of this illustration, on a symbolic level as well as the physical.

Today’s Mileage:

was to the gym, via my favorite cookie shop, with a library side-trip, and a quick treat, for 11.007 miles, in 1 hour 6 minutes 56 seconds, with a slow and sweaty average speed of 9.8 MPH.  Daniel’s map tells it even better, click HERE to see.

  1. That baby is adorable.
    Crumb Together – what a great name for a cookie shop.

    She is unbelievably gorgeous, seriously.

    On their site De and Tony tell the story of how it came to be, the name and the shop.

  2. Ah, new baby! I adore babies and could hold them and cuddle them all the time. 🙂

    I shall work on my luminance. I’m just tired and out of energy, though. I need to exercise, but according to Steve’s description from our trip up from Houston, I may have sleep apnea. I tried a CPAP machine years ago but cannot tolerate it unless I am drugged with valium, which has it’s own problems. I blame the nasal surgeon who for some reason tightened up one of my breathing passages during scar tissue removal surgery. Also because I am still overweight, but less so. I need to find out how to mitigate my sleep/snoring difficulties so I can sleep better and I need to exercise: maybe that will release my luminosity from it’s cave.

    Your love of baby-holding comment reminded me of a volunteer suggestion I made to you some time ago……
