MLK Jr. holiday was this past Monday and so, a three day weekend. Monday turned out to be one of those days when it all just came together. I was expecting it to feel chopped up and maybe even a little frustrating. There was a dentist appointment to begin the adventure of Invisalign and a trip to the vet with my old cat...the morning was gone. I had a date with my yoga class at 5:30. After getting the cat settled in and foraging in my refrigerator for lunch, I had just under four hours to spend at my jeweler's bench. Sometimes the bench god plays with me a little bit, just to remind me that patience and skill building are both necessary. Sigh. But this was a day when my brain, hands, and art-spirit- groove thing were all in sync. There was a little left to do when I got up to go to yoga, but for the most part, these were finished. A little thank you to the universe.
An additional gift from the holiday came through my yoga instructor, who ended our practice with a quote from MLK Jr., "I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear." And the people said, Amen.
