ginger snap

The first “nice thing” I ever bought myself was a ceramic ginger jar in Hong Kong from the official Chinese Arts and Crafts store when I was 22 years old and had been working as a fashion designer all of 2 years. “Guaranteed to be at least 100 years old” the label said. I don’t know if it was or not but today its life ended. This morning the shelf it was on with some heavy art books gave way and my ginger jar fell off and splintered shards everywhere.

I’m not upset. I enjoyed it for a good long time. It got me thinking, though.  I thought I was living with the past but if I’m really honest with myself I am still living in the past. There is a difference. Today I will set the intention to let go more of yesterday, let in more of today. Action follows intention.

I will fix the shelf and I will place a new solid green ginger jar there that I received last month as a birthday gift from my friends Maureen & Max.
