Details, details, been a strange couple of days, the full moons energy has sure created a little turmoil in my life

I have spent hours and hours detailing furniture and lighting layouts and then coming home and spending hours and hours putting together a newsletter I send out on the full moon.  Editing articles to make sure they fit, sizing images, trying out different typefaces and layouts, which colour scheme, what words to say…………….  then come the day of the full moon, first the newletter file became corrupted and couldn’t compress for sending, that made me late and i had to rush for the train to London to attend a meeting and slipt over, twisting my arm and and leg and bruising everywhere!!.  The meeting was successful and long and then a trying evening resulting in a situation that seemed so out of proportion to the the actual circumstances.  I have always felt it was necessary to say what is on your mind, good or bad, I know sometimes this has not served me fully.  But bottling things up is not a good idea either, its best to be able to bring up what’s on ones mind before it gets all out of proportion and then forces itself out like an exorcet missile !!!  I didnt “react” but it left me feeling a little sad.

Today I could  go over all the details again and again, but NO, details have there place.  For my work as an interior designer, attention to detail is what creates that “effortless” look and find this quite “effortless” after all these years, but in day to day to living, the detail just ties us in knots, what mattters is that we live in the present, find joy in the day, in the minute.  Today has been like that,  seeing the big white jug of “pinks” in my kitchen and breathing in their heady perfume, hearing my cat purr, seeing my “happiness” plant with a new leaf bud, feeling the sun on my face.   A peaceful day and everything is just as it should be.
