JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 11 :: the joy of rain

11 Jan
{sunshine}

There was no sun today. It rained and rained and rained some more. It makes me wonder if JOY is shining through the clouds and trying to send me a message.

Some days we have to make our own sunshine.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 5 :: joy of rain

5 Jan
{afternoon showers}

Oh, Joy! It’s raining today. Again. I can’t help but think that Joy is teaching me the importance of singing in the rain.



I am already feeling the power of focusing on my new promise. Joy is calling to me. Joy is whispering to me. Joy is trying to swing open the doors to a whole new way of living (joy de vivre?)

Even in the rain.
And, could there be a better lesson when one lives in the state of Washington?

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 291 :: kind & stormy

18 Oct

Oh, Rain. 

It’s been wet and dark and grey today. The first storm of winter. All rain and wind. In many ways, it feels so comfy and cozy and kind in its own way.

There’s something beautiful about the seasons changing. Leaves falling. Clouds gathering. Rain falling.

And there’s something even more beautiful about watching it, recognizing it, and honoring it. Kindness in many ways is accepting that which is.

Even in the rain.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 180 :: 4-letter word friday

21 Jul

Singing in the RAIN.

It’s POURING rain in Chicago. Sideways rain. Intense flash flood rain.


Of course, it happened at the exact moment we needed to get INTO our taxi to go to dinner… and then again exactly as we needed to hop back into a taxi to return home. It was all worth it of course – great food, great friends, great memories and moments.

Rain is good.
Rain is vital.
But just like kindness, if you smother with too much, too fast, it can cause a flash flood.

Now, get an umbrella.
Cause everyone’s going to get wet!

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 85 :: rainy sun

29 Mar

Flowers.

The sun will come out tomorrow! Man… it feels like it’s been a long winter. And today with the rain falling outside my window, I cannot help but think it is really not quite Spring yet.

Then, miraculously, the sun came out. Late in the day. Just to peek in and show its face. And that has me thinking that sunshine is kindness. Just as is the rain.

The kind of kindness that takes two to makes the flowers bloom, the raindrops dry, and the grass green.

Welcome Spring. You are one wet mess!
And I kind of like it.

More tomorrow….
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 114 :: learning to walk in the rain

24 Apr

Day 114: Sun.

According to my iPhone I walked seven miles today. Okay, well, maybe it’s more like 6.97 miles but that’s so close to seven I’m rounding up.

But that’s not the breakthrough of my day. Oh no. It was the rain. Washington is teaching me to walk in the rain. Of course, I still wear my rain boots and raincoat, which is a surefire way to announce to the locals that you don’t live here, didn’t grow up here or are a tourist. (Some days I still feel like all three).

But today, I walked. In the rain.

And, somewhere in the middle of walking in the rain, three people stopped me to tell me how much they loved my red rain boots. Then a woman passed me on the Fairhaven trail and announced, “I love your pink raincoat!”

And, then, miraculously, the sun came out.

I’m not sure what to take from that, really. Did the sun come out because I left the house to go on a walk on a rainy day? Did the clouds part so that I could be the ONLY person in Bellingham walking around in rain boots while the sun shone and people ate ice cream cones?

Who knows?
But I do know this. It doesn’t matter if the sun shines if you don’t.
So shine on. Boots, coat, umbrella and all.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

P.S. Yoga done! Body sore.

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 352 :: bliss of the heart

22 Dec

Today’s bliss…a real photo.

Sent to me tonight: a heart! In the rain! In the garage! 

I love this photo, not because the rain drops created a heart. And not because the heart is almost practically perfectly shaped (seriously!).

I love it because Jaynane sent this photo my way, knowing I would love it. And being thought of and remembered is always a matter of the heart.

Heart. Bliss.

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 301:: big leaf bliss

1 Nov

Today’s bliss…. big leaves!

It’s been raining for days, and the crazy thing is…. it hasn’t bothered me at all. I’m still in Washington awe. I have the eyes of a child. Everything is brand new.

Including these ENORMOUS leaves… they are HUGE!


(Just to put it in perspective I wear a size ten shoe and that is ONE leaf.)

And if you look closely the smaller yellow leaf is the shape of a heart.
Oh, bliss!

More tomorrow.
Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 135 :: and i think it’s going to rain today

20 May
The rains are here (and it’s a good thing we planted the garden yesterday). Grey skies make me sleepy. So I took a nap.

Actually, I had an ulterior motive. I plan to stay up for the last David Letterman Show.

I’m finding it hard not to see the spoiler alerts on social media…and trying really hard to watch the last show “live” on the west coast. But I already saw one spoiler… that Dave goes for laughs instead of tears.

Which is okay, because over here, it’s raining in the sky tonight. Which I would like to think as shedding a few tears over the bliss he has brought so many over the decades.

Thanks for the laughs, Dave.

“Bright before me the signs implore me
To help the needy and show them the way
Human kindness is overflowing
And I think it’s going to rain today”
More tomorrow.
Lovemore, 

Jamie
