Unwinding in the Twilight


Sometimes it is okay to simply do nothing. Put down the to-do list, cancel your plans, and just sit there and relax.

You deserve to be present without worrying about, “what’s next?”. Save those thoughts for another time.

Hey, Lovelies.

I had a busy day with clients yesterday, many of whom are going through great personal difficulty, and by day’s end I felt quite worn and stretched.

I’d also promised to cook a meal, and to spend time with Ben working on a project, but due to a last-minute emergency session I was late leaving my home office, and when I came out into the hall the house was quiet.
Ben was busy online in his office at the other end of the house, talking to people and doing things of his own, and I could see he was going to take a while. I could also see that he’d helped himself to dinner already.

So, what was I to do?

I made myself a cold drink, and I sat on the deck and watched the late afternoon turn to evening as I sipped my refreshment and the dogs lay at my feet.

As I watched the daylight fade I felt my own tension drain away, and soon I found myself enveloped in a velvety quiet. In the distance storm clouds shimmered with lightning.

Slowly my ears attuned to the noises of the forest. I heard birds calling to each other, and the symphony of cicadas. I heard the clicks and pops of the native frogs, and the cackle of bats in the fruit trees. Eventually all of these sounds were muffled by rain. Ben came and sat beside me and we both enjoyed the quiet of the evening.

It was a beautiful way to wind down towards sleep.

This morning I still carry that calm in my heart.

Wishing you a peaceful and connected day too, or a way for you to find some time in the soothing arms of the natural world.

Love, berry juice, rocket frogs, pobblebonks, microbats and greenery, Nicole xx
