Peace Be With You

After Fartbuster and I separated, I had trouble falling asleep most nights.  Too much going on in my head once life grew still around me.  On nights like that, I would close my eyes and imagine myself cradled in a large strong pair of hands, like one of the Anne Geddes baby portraits that were popular at the time.  Curled up safe, free to slip away into dreams.  Like this…

    I fast forward in my head to a time when my problems will be over, and all the current issues have long been dealt with. Then I imagine my future self in Hawaii or the Louvre, just staring at the ocean/Mona Lisa (fill in the blank) and smiling. I imagine sunlight, radiance of beauty and peace filling me. I’ve been through enough bad patches and disasters that I have faith things come around again, and I imagine that it has already happened. Usually can’t remember the thought that carried me off the next day, but that’s where I start. I supposed it’s visualization. I hope you are sleeping like that gorgeous baby deer tonight.

    Beautiful image! Me, I breathe. In and out, remembering that all I am doing is breathing every time thoughts pull me away. Or I write, putting all the anxieties and dismays on paper, outside of my head, until the thoughts are drained like a well going dry.
