Raining Days & Mondays

Rainy days and Mondays is a reference to a song by The Carpenter's. It's Monday, rainy, and windy. A blustery day. Just got in from walking the kids to school. My British nieces are 3, 6, & 9. What a perfect collection of numbers. There is so much balance and symmetry to their ages, it's remarkable. In yoga, numbers divisible by 3 have a spiritual significance. Actually, it’s probably more scientific than spiritual, or maybe there’s no tangible difference. It’s so great being uncle garrell, especially they way they say it. Being around such precious beings, has a significant impact on who I am. I realise parents are at a disadvantage, in that parenting involves a lot of steering the little ones to get socks and shoes on, putting things away, when the little ones just want to play. Never having kids, from this perspective, I feel I’ve missed out on something significant. We learn about who we are, and what we’re made of, in relationships. On my own, I just get to be right. In relationship, I learn and grow. A little.
