For several days now I have been doing the full walk that I used to take regularly with Marianne. It has been a blessing. Yesterday I did not feel able to complete the walk, but a blessing of a different kind came.

 Listening to the birdsongs
 Resting my aching knee
 I feel a hint of an opening not felt in a long time.
 For at least this one moment
 I am present to my vulnerability
 Not running away to activity
 But just sitting and letting things be.
