As a way to keep going, I will leave a bit of what I have been up to recently (instead of writing).
Looking out my window
It has been warm, the temperature steadily rising a few degrees each day. The breeze has been nice, but I long for the storms of Monsoon. The birds sing and the children play in the yard. It is peaceful in all of its noise.
I am thinking
About so many things… Too many on my mind and I cannot seem to put the puzzles together.
I am thankful
for having access to medical care.
One of my favourite things
waking up from a nap feeling refreshed instead of feeling unsteady and unsure.
I am creating
a photography project that centres around mental illness and portraying it realistically instead of with pretty faces and costumes.
I am wearing
comfy blue shorts and a comfy pink shirt
I am reading (read) /watching (watched) / listening to
Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer (reading)
Indie stations (Google Music)
I recently sat down and watched one of my all time favourite movies, Coraline.
for a bit of peace in this maelstrom I call my life.
to practice my spirituality each and every day, even if what I do is small.
we are working with my Sun on his reading – he is not much of a reader, but he is showing progress.
we are still working on getting the garden started. my friend has a few lovely plants growing in her kitchen, and they need to be transplanted here shortly.
“Sometimes I wish I could photosynthesize so that just by being, just by shimmering at the meadow’s edge or floating lazily on a pond, I could be doing the work of the world while standing silent in the sun.”
– Robin Wall Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass.
A moment from my day
taken on 13 May 2017, during a maternity photo session I was hired for. I love the desert. <3
I want everyone to know that I have not forgotten about this blog, that I have not forgotten my work as a writer, that I have not lost touch with anyone or anything. I am, however, dealing with severe health issues, both mental and physical, and dealing with moving and all of the changes that separation causes. I will come back, with my head screwed on a bit tighter, I just need a while to reassess life and words and beliefs and concepts. I hope that you will all check in with me throughout this process because your support truly means the world to me <3
