I'm almost 65, I don't know WTF anymore. In my generation we looked for a book, took a class, found an expert - somebody Anybody out there that could tell us How To Do It so that we did it Right.
So more than anything this is an experiment. I've been wanting to write forever. Probably since I had my first poem published in the local newspaper at 8. (Of course I have a copy of the paper somewhere). And I have poetry and websites (see links above). I long to put it together. I long to have it make a difference. But more than anything it is so much FUN! (And gives me the opportunity to procrastinate freezing the peaches).
Today is the first of September 2015. Such a good day to begin anew. Wayne Dyer passed away within the last couple of days and I found out today. Somehow that is significant of the times. I dug and found Heather Blakey, A writer, teacher, techie who has been my heroine for years. Her Descansos on Soul Food Cafe is a writing prompt having to do with the liminal moments in our life, the deaths and ways not taken. That is curious and interesting because I'm planning on taking Liminal Life Writing with Rayya Liebich at the end of October. It feels like I'm pulling the threads together.
I'm back on my Food Protocol Cleanse and at the weight I was when I paused on July 29 (after bad flu). Isn't that cool? This is significant for me because it is a completely new approach to losing weight, eating, life. And It's working! More on this soon but I will say that I'm taking herbal drops that make it very easy. I've lost 26 lbs so far and my goal is to lose that much more this round. Wonderful thing (besides not being hungry or depleted) is that in between rounds I'm learning what my body actually likes to eat and what makes it bloat up like a water balloon (alcohol).
I'm reading a book called "The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible" See this is why I have to do this online, in WP. My life - like everyone else's is So post post modern. Interconnected - woven - RICH - crazy - busy - going down the stream FAST. Let's Celebrate!
What if we could Trust? That it is all OK. That there is a Kind, Loving Universe out there. That I can write, that I have something to say that will pour out of me if I just find the right venue. So I've decided that this multi-media platform that allows me to link to my Pinterest, and favorites is the way to go! Can add my favorites! And report that at the end of day "Everyone is doing the Best they can!" as Christie Marie Sheldon says.
