Nothing is more important than reconnecting with your bliss. Nothing is as rich. Nothing is more real. Deepak Chopra
Wrapping up a beach weekend right now & reflecting on just how important it was. Xing Fu told me he didn't feel quite like I did about needing to reconnect but once he got here & we sat in front of the fireplace at midnight, he said that it was a good thing that I put a lot of thought into "couple things" to do as he doesn't often think that way. Being at the beach was a good example. I have to agree because even though he didn't feel the need as I did, I found it very necessary for the both of us (maybe he'll recognize this later). We have been spending the past few weeks fully engaged in everyday living & have had fleeting times together for any real duration of time. Just getting away for these few days has been hugely important--down time, R & R, whatever you want to call it--reminds me of us--who we are as a couple--it is necessary. Xing Fu also said that the almost three hours in the car each way went by quite quickly--talking about everything & perhaps very little but it was quality time. Both of us brought a couple board games (bored?) thinking that perhaps we'd play--Scrabble or something but as usual, we just ran out of time--again, if asked what we did exactly--walk on the beach, boardwalk, a nice dinner in town & evenings by the fire. It's funny, but even as we sat listening to the end of a Stevie Ray Vaughn disc, I knew exactly what Xing Fu would choose as the next selection--Eric Clapton...kinda freaky but there's that connection--the synchronicity that perhaps we'd lost a bit of. It was good to have it back again.
