This is where I'm heading right after I write this post. A warm bath is so inviting after a stressful day to wash away all the muck and transport you to a more serene state of mind. Here is where I submerge and let go. Here is where I caress my body with much deserved kindness that I didn't give myself during the grind of the day. It is my baptism and I don't want to rush, I'd rather linger in lost tranquility just this moment. Soon enough it will be over and things back to normal, but for now...
We have a joke in my family since we were kids about bathing. It makes no sense to anyone but us (totally an inside joke). My brother, Mark to this day loves to mock me when I take a bath. He says, "You can't get clean." I so beg to differ with him on this, I can get clean and I'm on my way to get clean. I'll be clean from head to toe and while I relax my brain is going to rid itself sludge too.
Suffice it to say I know what Mark means, because as soon as you get out the tub the cooties jump back on you. But that's another story I can talk about later. In the meantime all of you have warm and wet bubbly dreams of getting to a peaceful place of restoration in your bath or shower, Take your time with it and believe me you will get clean.
Good night sweethearts. ♥
PS. I would be hard pressed to leave this sanctuary. I'll keep dreaming till the dream comes.
