Feelin' Fuzzy

~ by Emily Cline ~

I'm having one of those fuzzy days. My mind is so far away.
I want to be with friends that aren't near me.
Friends I'm thinking about.
Friends I want to comfort.
Friends I miss.
Friends who hold so much space in my heart we are sisters.

Years ago, I didn't really know how to be a friend. To be honest, I felt different and isolated -- don't most of us? -- and only took care of myself. I was totally independent. I admire that in people now; it's something I'm not very good at anymore. Now I'm not dependent, but as I read in Orly Avineri's book, "One Artist Journal" (which I'll post about later) I'm feeling interdependent. She calls it "... a devotion to ... take care of our individual needs and the needs of others as far from us as they may be."

I will do the things I need to do to take care of myself today: eat healthy, have my juice, do some art, and do my (dreaded) exercise. But my desire to care for and be with my sisters is overwhelming.

I just feel fuzzy.
