Written Friday, posted Saturday

After I figured out what I'd done wrong yesterday, I have this to add today:

It’s Friday already. Sigh. I had one of those afternoons yesterday when I finished a task and had some time before starting dinner. What to tackle next? Since I no longer have wee ones demanding my attention every waking moment, it’s a bit harder to say what’s most important. The ole checklist (food, clothing, shelter) for survival doesn’t take long to work through. Then what????

I know, I know….if I really were buying into my resolve to get these tatting patterns out of my brain, into thread, and published I wouldn’t have to ask what next.

So what did I end up picking up? The Kathleen Norris Book (Cloister Walk). And what did I read? “The Benedictines … insist that there is time in each day for prayer, for work, for study, and for play.” Sigh. Perhaps it is time to walk on the beach and let the ocean center me.

  1. Oh, you have ocean near wonderful...the free wind at the seaside and the silence therein could free your brain for new steps...just live the moment when it's there...
