End of the Line...

Small change for those who regularly read the blog...I am moving all of my future blogposts to my Tumblr account.  For those who aren't aware, I currently write five blogs, in five different voices, it seems.  I'm hoping to consolidate all to one voice, at one location.

It should probably also be noted that my online presence will start to be more streamlined, too, at least for the holiday season (and I'm hoping beyond).  At present I post all over the map, constantly trying to catch up, constantly trying to remind others that I'm still there and still listening.  My life has turned into more of what "it looks like" than "what it is."  Moving forward, most of my postings will be on Tumblr, and even those will be limited.

I'm still here, reading everyone else.  Believe it or don't.  I'm also out finding life.  The mentality that I might "miss something on the 'net if I don't tune in" has moved to "I might miss life if I don't limit my internet time."

Thanks for reading.  Onward.

Light Bulb Moment

I was able to change two bulbs in a bathroom fixture this morning.  The fixture was in an awkward position, and I had no experience with it.  I trusted that the glass would not fall on my head.

The act gave me such a feeling of accomplishment, I felt invincible for the first time in weeks.

Teacher. There Are Things...

When I have mornings like this, calm with coffee in a balcony garden, my brother's music from a speaker behind me, I am surprised to find this:

I need to trust my happiness when it comes.  I need to trust my sadness when it prevails.  I need to allow myself both to go on.

Simple, no?

Simple = no.

Write on.

Snapped Shut

Ah, sweet laptop...

I wring you dry with writing and sharing, searching and singing, and then...

Snap you shut to capture more juice for the next day's nourishment, like collecting dew to drink.
