noticing your life... 

It's been a day of noticing. Noticing the way the light streams in this morning. Noticing the way Fia laughs when Yoshi dances sideways in the yard. Noticing the way my fingertips want to drift across her shoulders when I walk by where she sits. Noticing that there's not a moment I want to miss here in this life...

& I wonder when that changed for me. Because for a long time, I thought I was a classic artist, doomed to constant dissatisfaction. As if there was some other place I'd be happier. Or more connected. Or where I'd find my real life, with my real people...

What changed is that life had brought me to a point where I was cracked wide open: to love & delight & listening more closely & being less crackly. & it's no surprise that's when I met Fia. Who delights me, with her point of view & a life that I'm curious about. Who loves me in spite of the places I could be less crackly. Who invites me to love her fully back... 

I guess it's a simple thing when you come down to it. We pay attention. Because we love this life together & we don't want to miss a bit of it...

with love, brian

P.S. If this looks familiar, it's because it's a story from Impossible to Know. If it doesn't look familiar, it's because you need to get it. HA. Since it's on sale still. Click here if you want to fix that particular problem...:-)

Thoughts for this week...

As we've been working in the studio, we've been having an ongoing conversation on the idea of talismans, objects that remind us of purpose & who we'd like to be in this life.

This week's writing by Fia is on some of the talismans she carries along with her. We hope it'll give you a sense of the talismans you already have in your life. Drop in & read romantic notions when you get a chance...
