There was something about the end of July that felt quite powerful. I think perhaps it was the approach of my Birthday at the beginning of August that made it feel that getting to the end of July was a significant marker. Originally I had only intended to have my daily practice last until my birthday. It was a later decision in which to embrace the full year.
The intensity of time and what it means to give concentrated time was highlighted in my mind as my friends organised a birthday celebration consisting of a day of 30 minutes slots with all of my favourite people.THe emotion that fills up as you layer each moment on top of each other creates a very full sensation. In lots of ways it was a microcosm moment of all the transitions I have had this year and the feelings that ahve ebbed abd flowed through them.
