I rarely plan my posts ahead of time. They just appear, as if by magic, into my head. The thoughts are usually in one theme and headed in a straight forward direction. Rarely are they philosophical or “flowy” in how they tie together a concept and the reality of daily living. Perhaps today I can manage that so I am going to interrupt Charlotte (once again).Continue reading “A ray of sunshine”
But wait – it’s #BellLet’sTalk day so just a quick post to talk about how important it is to address self care and mental health.
Too often it’s the elephant in the room and people just feel like they don’t have a choice. So they live with anxiety, depression and in pain emotionally. The pandemic has been extremely difficult for so many on a lot of levels.
Reach out. Call, text, email or emoji a friend or family member. Tell them you are there. Show them you are there by being there. Keep connecting. Keep trying even if it feels hard. It’s harder for them. Give them a piece of your heart.
Stay safe and stay kind.
In hindsight it seems like an interesting word that I was drawn to late last year. In essence it seems simple. Re-balance. Balance again or restore to the correct balance. Right? Sounds simple. Move a few things around to shift the load so to speak.Continue reading “Rebalancing 2020”
The wind flashes over the golden leaves and wafts the smell of supper under my nose. The endless flyby of migrating geese fill the ears with the sound of loved ones keeping in touch. The sun has lost its warmth as evening creeps closer but for now the golden hour holds sway. The harvest sounds have faded around the valley and everywhere there are naked fields. The cows are moving on out to find their favourite morsels to munch on before bedding down for the night. I sit on a hard cold stone step; one built with skill, persistance and love.Continue reading “Mindfully”
The blog sits quite quiet while the words, thoughts and emotions are swirling around my head at breakneck speed. Nothing wants to solidify into a sentence of consequence. The focus flairs and then falls short as I bounce off to chase another squirrel thought.Continue reading “Fall Focus”
I sit. I ponder. I dig. I sigh.Continue reading “Sunday Sighs”
What if these “are the good old days”? What if next year we look back and realize that a summer without big plans, a summer without too many commitments, a summer set within our homes and yards wasn’t such a bad thing. It’s a different spin on how to look at the whole Covid19 situation.Continue reading “Something to Think About”
Although the title refers to a sewing term it definitely is not a blog about creative time. Could actually be the reverse as I feel like creative time is now at a premium.Continue reading “No easing In”
I turned the calendar page from May to June. There has been very little to distinguish one month from the next. No work days, no appointments, no sports, no parties, no dessert nights or Scotch tasting parties. It struck me how little I have actually needed a calendar for in the last 3 months.Continue reading “June “bugs””
There are a lot of blessings for sure but they are running alongside some significant buts…Continue reading “A mixed up bag”
