Have you ever frozen time, captured perfection, wrapped it in a bubble and discovered your Eutopia? To do that even once, is to come closer to who we were meant to be…
I am still very inspired by the early morning Tai Chi I witnessed yesterday in the street and I keep thinking of how important it is to create our own bubble, our space that we can be inside of when we need to think clearly. It is of course the most natural thing for any human to have this space, and it is in our very design. The greatest achievement is to be able to keep our bubble clean, safe and uncluttered. Only that way it can provide the safety each one of us longs for, the sense of knowing who we are and what we are meant to be doing…

Being a parent we spend most days wearing different hats, care giver, teacher, guide, coach, nurse, leader, comforter, helper, dresser, shopper, cook,.. you know how it goes.
But there are those special days when we find the freedom to just ‘be’ with our children. We enter their realm, we shift gears to be on their speed, we laugh wholeheartedly at their jokes, we feel the awe they feel at the little things, we get excited about finding a snail in the garden at night, we collect flowers, we become somehow also children. I love days like these, they make me feel like I lived a whole lifetime in one day and yet somehow still manage to feel younger, lighter, happier, freer.
We live on a bubble, we are surrounded by bubbles, and we love bubbles! Bubbles are magical aren’t they? They have some sort of magic to them and so do circles! Magic is everywhere around us if we choose to stop and see it. It does not take much to inspire me 🙂
We call it the magic hour,
the golden hour,
the time the sun gifts us with the magic of softness,
when all is glowing,
when light caresses our hair,
when we feel stillness,
when day and night just embraced or are just about to embrace,
this is the place where true passion lives.
They say if we want to keep something safe, an idea, a secret, a special thought, a new love, a tender moment; then we need to protect it. We need to shield it and contain it until it grows from fragile and new to strong and mature. It sound easy to do, but I have found it always to be one of life’s biggest challenges. Almost like keeping a bubble from bursting, and letting it hold the magic inside for as long as I possibly can.
Today was the first day that we truly felt Spring in the air! We planned a little picnic with treats, books, a memory game and of course smiles and bubbles!
Happy Spring everyone!
