Catching at peace

Posted in Thoughts and Reflections at 12:07 pm by

Driving in to work this morning with the music shuffle off, watching Ra gild the half-bare treetops in his rising, I felt a flicker of peace, and wondered at how fragile and fleeting a feeling that can be, and yet how precious. In the last few weeks, I’ve been angry and unkind, anxious and depressed, scattered and several different kinds of miserable. And I still don’t know how much of it was justified, how much was neurological downward spiral, and how much was self-delusion and grasping at shadows.

It doesn’t matter now. Zep Tepi once again, a chance to start over, to enter a new day. To try to do it better this time.

A gift found while walking at lunch: a cat-head-shaped leaf.

O Bast, may You watch over me, now and always, as Your daughter. May You grant me a cool heart and a joyful ka.

    Bast must have loved that. I absolutely love your little Bast. Did you make that?

    Thanks! That actually is a Marshmallow Peeps Halloween cat — which is apparently very rare! Who knew! I didn’t think of her as being Bast, but you’re right, she would make a very cute Bast image. ^_^
