For me, letting go also means letting go of plans and expectations. I like to be in control of how I spend my time, but sometimes, circumstances change and others have a greater influence on the day’s outcome than I do, more so if I am sensitive to their needs. The sooner I let go of my agenda, the happier I am. Go with the flow, accept what is, see the positive. For example, I had a whole list of things I wanted to accomplish the other day, but Bud said the pinot grigio had to be picked. It quickly turned out to be a joy. Bud and I kept exclaiming, “Look at these grapes! Aren’t they amazing? Man, they’re loaded.” The yield was three times what we had harvested last year from the same row. So, I can see letting go of any type of attachment is directly related to accentuating the positive and vice versa.

About dmdubay

Since retiring from Northwest Airlines and moving to the Pacific Northwest, I have more time to devote to writing. My first novel, "Tales of Two Sisters" was published over a year ago. I have been writing poetry for a long time and am attempting to collate my poetry into a short book, with pictures. A sequel to "Tales of Two Sisters" should be getting closer to completion soon. Gardening and tending the vineyard take a lot of time in the summer. Even though I love the outdoors, these activities do cut down on my writing. So I appreciate that wintertime allows me time to write. Writing, for me, is what brings things into focus and helps me to make sense of the things that life brings. It is a gift to me and I hope that it will be to you also.
