It was a glorious day of Yoga, packing for my trip to Palm Springs and then travel.
Travel was a tad frustrating because of major mechanical delays, but I got to spend it with wonderful people as we passed the time. There was also a slew of children playing games that entertained us a lot as we waited in the empty airport after midnight. What an interesting new experience.
I am glad I had my arsenal of Mala beads, books and inspirational materials to remind me to stay in my Vortex. This kept me calm and centered and happy. What a change from a few years ago. I would have been angry and livid at the circumstances AND I would have forced the airline to accommodate and compensate me somehow.
I got that anyway. I got a voucher for some food, I will get some travel vouchers from the airline for future travel AND they will reimburse me for my cab ride to the home I am staying.
My partner pointed out that maybe it was an exercise in patience because there were no other flights for several days. I either had to wait for the plane to arrive, or forego the trip altogether. That was, obviously, unacceptable.
So, now I am in Palm Springs visiting old friends, family and getting a much needed break from my routines and "life" in San Francisco. I really need the break and I have a lot of questions to ask of the desert and of my SELF.
All is delightfully well! Gratefully I accept this and embrace it. And so it is...
