Ebb & flow

It’s so peaceful right now.

Right now, N.C. & Jackson (and the dog & the cat) are napping. It is sprinkling outside. I have a cup of hot chai. It is quiet, and peaceful, and cozy, and just exactly what I want right this minute.

In a little bit, the boys will both get up, the animals will start yowling for dinner, and the noise and hubbub of the family will start up again. There will be laughter and talking and probably some whining and cajoling.  It will be chaotic through the playing/dinner/bedtime gauntlet, and then it will start to quiet down again as the evening moves into night.

The ebb and flow of noise and energy in the house. The waves of quiet and noise, of stillness and motion, of solitude and togetherness. Both states have elements that sustain me, and elements that drain me, but luckily it’s easy to find joy and love in both the quiet and the noise.
