tuesday's heart


february is a womb and i am curled inside.

"all the hardships of the last nine months will fall away as you prepare for something miraculous to happen."*

iphone image: michael's jeep, box of tissues on the dashboard. 

it was a hard tuesday, plumbing disasters, hard pain again, that feeling of if i knew where to run and i had the money to do so, i would go.  that feeling of being trapped by all the decisions i've made in my life, one of those days when every one of them felt like the wrong turn taken.

rounding the curve of the sidewalk, silently cursing, i looked up from my path and there it was.

when you stop looking, the hearts find you.

  3. You get so many hidden messages that you are loved and cared about.

    Wish you didn't have so much trouble believing it.

    BIG HUGS.

    1. Barb - One of the few things I do believe is that I am loved and cared about. I am lucky and grateful. Tuesday was just one of those days - my chronic pain thing making every other problem seem larger. :) The unexpected heart was a reminder.

      gracias!

  5. I see it, clear as glass. When days are the most heart on you, they will find you and put yours at ease, for awhile.

  7. one of your best decisions in life was to write. your gift to US is magic in itself. i wish you could see you as we see you. you 'see' in photography what the normal eye does not. you 'see' in words what the normal thought never sees.
    i am grateful.
    in fondest of thoughts always, tilda

  10. So weird. I was having these same feelings and looked up and saw a cloud in the shape of a heart. I haven't posted it yet. Thanks for this.

  11. I love moments that draw me up short and make me really look at my life instead of running along on the track my brain is perseverating. If you hadn't said that was tissues, I might not have figured it out!

  12. That's the Universe's way of giving us a big hug when we need it.

  13. I love this shot - I looked all week for hearts and couldn't find them - this week they are jumping out everywhere, but only when I don't have my camera...it's like they are taunting me....:) Thanks for sharing!

  15. "that feeling of being trapped by all the decisions i've made in my life, one of those days when every one of them felt like the wrong turn taken."

    Oh, I can relate to this - am having one of those intervals where every mistake I have ever made, every dumb thing I have done since the age of six is coming back to haunt me.
