Even for me, this was a busy weekend, and I’m approaching wipe out.
For my birthday present to myself, I attended the Earth Spirit Rising conference at Xavier, sponsored by Imago, an ecological / spiritual group. So early Friday, son Brian and I started to fill out the financial aid forms for grandson Patrick, and then I worked on the big event the community development group I run is having on the 25th. At 2 p m, I taught and then Attuned as a Second Degree Reiki healer a friend / client from Cleveland who drove down for the teaching. At 5, I was at dinner at Earth Spirit Rising, with the opening celebration and presentation at 7. I managed to leave early enough to pop out to Ann Taylor to find a dressy brown shirt to wear to the opera on Saturday.
I got home, blogged, worked on my dream book, and fell into bed. Saturday morning after feeding the birds and organizing the house, I got to Xavier at 7:45 for breakfast. We got into such big conversations that our table was late for the opening at 8:45. But I was in plenty of time to hear the first and second speakers, who were great.
After lunch, I joined two discussion groups, and at 4 left to go home and get ready for The Marriage of Figaro. So I missed the evening presentations at ESR. But had a great dinner and Sung Korean, and spent the evening listening to magnificent voices. Figaro is also a very funny opera, so the laughter was great, too. Home at 11:30 p m, asleep well after midnight.
Then this morning, woke up still sleepy, which never happens to me. Got to Xavier right at 8, enjoyed breakfast and talking to some new folk (hung out with different people at every meal, some I knew and some I didn’t. Loved Sr. Paula Gonzalez’ thinking and feeling presentation, and her good energy, and hit the Grailville bookstore for my last purchases. With lunch to follow.
And then headed toward home, stopping by a friend’s house to assist her ailing cat. The cat was very receptive, after initially being confused about what was happening. Got home with enough time to decide to meditate, which turned into a wonderful nap. Then it was off for dinner at Dusmesh and The Soloist at the Esquire – terrific on so many levels!
I need the weekend to stop so I can rest! This was a busy weekend, even for me.
