Last night while sitting in bed deciding what movie to watch with my son, the scent of mens cologne became distinct while one side of the room became chilly. It’s been some time since we have experienced any activity in the house. For those who don’t believe in such things you may wish to skip this post. There were not any strong emotions noted with the presence as sometimes there are, but it was unmistakable.
As I said the activity that was so strong in our home has been absent for a time and I was so accustomed to some of it, it felt like something/someone was missing. My son has noticed an increase while on the computer, the lowest level being the strongest point for “visitors,” and they have started playing with his hair, something I frequently experienced before it all stopped. Oddly it never bothered me, but it does bother him and I’ve noticed a decrease in his online activities.
Maybe the spring, though is certainly does not resemble spring today, has awakened not only my emotions, but my senses as well, and with it the awareness of all that was always here.
