My little corner in the world
I was sitting on my balcony just now, relaxing and just not thinking so much actually. Enjoying my cup of tea and lunch, just listening to the birds singing in the trees. My area is filled with abundance of green, trees, a small river, birds, swans with their youngsters, ducks swimming by and seagulls flying over.
It still amazes me how they make use of the wind, when they fly by at my balcony. On the 6th floor of the apartment building it gives a totally different perspective as well experiencing the world around me.
I have this little area, where I can sit and relax, which is my little corner in the world. Here I can sit and contemplate, while listening to all the noises down below. Cars passing by on the street, horns of a truck blowing, cyclists on their way to school.
A lot of traffic is passing at the other end of my building along the road. The dogs barking down below, when they meet up and are greeting each other. Or because they just don’t like the other one, creating a warning noise. All those sounds blend in to one sound of my surrounding.
Almost like a Dolby surround system, only without the fine tuning. Or should I say, I am at the control panel to switch of the sounds or filter them out when ever I need it to be quiet, as it is within. This awareness of my little space has all it needs for me to feel comfortable, safe and happy to sit on my own.
During the morning hours, when the world starts to wake up, the noises of the birds singing their morning song. Later, when the gardeners start to mow the grass between our apartments, smelling the fresh mown grass all the way up here.
Creating my own little corner has been a task over the past years, thinking about the way I wanted it to be. My signature so to speak, to have this energy outside as I have it within my own home. The extension of my home, my house, my sanctuary as well.
Dwelling on the memories over the years I have been together with my beloved, in a totally different setting. A big yard and garden, family house and many visitors who came along during all the birthdays, celebrations. The family gatherings with the BBQ and a garden filled with happy people.
How different my life was then, even though I also had my own sanctuary in my garden as well. Being on the ground gives a totally different view and sensation as to live high up. The clouds are more impressive, the wind is making a different sound, the evening sunsets are spectacular watching them from high up.
Looking outside my window, all I can see now, is green, all the trees that are standing in the garden and at the other side of the little stream. Walking the path along it connects me with the earth as well, even more now as to the time I lived in our family home.
This area has a different feel to it, more ancient and has a different energy as well, one I feel at home with. So, either walking down there, or sitting up here, this is my little corner of the world. My space which is sacred and safe. It reflects the way I have changed as well over the years, spending time on my own. Growing into the role of the widow, instead of the wife in a long-lasting marriage. I feel carried so to speak, also by the energy of my beloved who sends me so many messages to let me know he is around.
This move to the apartment on the 6th floor was a gift, a magical event that happened in a time magic was needed. Love gave soul to the experience of moving out into a totally new environment, which immediately felt like home. It has been my shelter as well the space which enabled me to be productive in my writings. Finding my own rhythm without the need of taking care of anyone else, beside myself. Trusting the process that evolved during the time spend in a new place and a new identity.
How much I validate this little corner in my world, I can call my own. It still amazes me every day I come back to it after a visit, or shopping, I can call this my own. Still grateful for all the love and efforts it took to create a home for the both of us. This home has a golden glow with a diamant sparkle, to show how love can and does move mountains.
Never take anything for granted, for before you know it, your life can take a 180 degree turn around. My home is my castle, I have written about that as well. And you also implying, you are my guests and welcome as well.
I love to share from this space, this little corner that means the world to me. It has been my shelter, my safe space, my connection with the spirit world, as well the elements, the birds and nature. In so many ways and forms, it is fitting to my own signature.
It is creating its own energy because this is organic, evolving and for ever changing energy. Yet it will always be my little corner in the world to Be all I can Be. It enables me to give and to receive, the energy that comes through in every way. It provides me for my basic needs, a luxury compared to so many others.
I have a roof over my head, a bed to sleep in, enough food to enjoy my life and heating to keep me warm in wintertime. Electricity to shed a light when it gets dark, to use my laptop for my messages, to listen to the radio and music and warm water for my daily showers. I am so grateful for all I am blessed with, just this little corner in the world.
There isn’t much I call my own, because I don’t really care much for possessions or material wealth. Yet this is a place that is materializing my energy field so to speak, which is priceless and oh so dear to my heart. I wish everyone could have his or her own little corner in the world and is in a safe and happy space.
And so it will be done
