I've been feeling really antsy lately, distracted and unfocused. The only thing that can really calm me down these days is dance, and even that has been missing some kind of spark. I'm not sure how to work it all out yet. I went for a very short drive after dance practice today and found one street where coming down it I had a huge view of the hills and valley below. It was marvelous to just stop the car and sit on that dark street by myself, head out the window like a questing puppy, listening to the crickets and watching the lights sparkle below. A sweet calm descended over me, I took a deep, quiet breath and then continued.
