Gratitude for ..VICE GRIPS….

For TONIGHT..my dear devoted reader, I am grateful for…

VICE GRIPS.  Because I have had the “luxury” of sidling right beside one, in the “safety shanty” o’ my Dad ‘s garage, while we recline side-by-side, in total silence, indulging in our respective books.

NOTHING reeks “SEXY” like drinking wine…from a Mason Jar…next to a VICE GRIP!!!

Nestled in between the vice grip and my Dad, I am held securely IN PLACE.

I sit STILL…

I enjoy the magnificence of the moment.

And for once a day…I do not run away…because..

” You need to be PATIENT

your body needs TIME to CHANGE

We cheat ourselves if we MOVE TO SOON...

We must BREATHE…through the discomforts..the frustrations..”

Wise words courtesy of a much needed Yin/Surrender Yoga practice.

RED SKIES. As per the wise words o’ Dad..

Red sky at night is a sailors delight, red sky in the morning is a sailors warning.”

Thus, a red sky in the morning means… there’s a storm a brewing.

And for me…

EVERY.DAMN.MORNING…is a “red sky”.

EVERY.DAMN.MORNING..there’s a “storm brewing” ..

In my mind.

In my body.

In my soul..

Courtesy of whatever has bombarded my noggin during the previous evening’s shenanigans and restless slumber.

And now, the morning comes…and the “demons” must be “released”.

Typically via a red-zone-heart-pounding-head-spinning-ear-bud blasting “insert maniacal activity” here…

HOWEVER.

Perhaps…

PERHAPS

I do NOT..need to “maniacal” myself away from the discomfort.

PERHAPS

I have the capacity to…

FACE.THIS.DISCOMFORT.

TO “GET INTO THIS SH$T!” (~James Hetfield, Mexico City Tour, 1993)

ONE.

STEP.

AT.

A.

TIME.

And in heeding the wise words of my beloved James Hetfield….

“SEEK AND DESTROY MUTHERFU$KERS!! YOU KNOW THE LINES…NOW DON’T F%CK UP!! “
(Check it out..its an AMAZING live performance!!)

BESTIES. Because no matter WHERE they are…they are ALWAYS there…

So here’s hoping that YOU TOO might enjoy:

  1. Your version of a “VICE GRIP“, which will hold you safely and securely in place, so you might be able to enjoy the magnificence of..a moment..
  2. The “delight” of a RED SKY at night.
  3. A BESTIE who is always there, no matter how near or far..

Until next time my loves….
