Experiments with enough – Day 40

Experiments with enough – Day 40

On holiday day two. Which also happens to be my birthday.

There are not many things I can find fault with today. Just-after-midnight birthday love, a late morning, a sunny breakfast of Sicilian fruits and nuts, making it to the shops just in time to get food, a hike up a small part of Etna (in a bowtie, because: birthday), a lava-surrounded picnic and coming back to many, many sweet messages that make me feel loved. It’s good to stop, it’s good to just be.

A day full of love, gratitude and one seriously powerful mountain.

Experiments with enough – Day 39

Experiments with enough – Day 39

Officially on holiday.

I’ve taken a few much needed days to do absolutely nothing (except write very little about doing absolutely nothing). It felt so, so good today to just lie in the sun, to eat a lot of Sicilian food, to walk, to laugh, to completely forget to stress about what I have not yet done.

I am grateful. Grateful to be here in the best company I could imagine, grateful for the space I am in, grateful for the food, the air, the sea, the endless amounts of lava rock everywhere. Grateful for everything that has paved the way to here and now. Because it feels great.
