Making :commitments to myself
Cooking : wontons in bone broth
Drinking : nettle, sage and yarrow tea
Reading: knitting patterns and blogs about knitting, Kingdom of Kammebornia, hello cool weather handcrafts
Wanting: to have as many arms as Durga so I can do all my tasks at once, and hug my family, garden and still knit…
Looking: at the tree line against the incredible blue sky, at what grows when you give
Playing: Harmonium, piano, accordian, Set, Chinese checkers
Wasting: energy worrying about all that I shall not accomplish today. I shall stop now.
Sewing: a quilt very slowly but I better hurry up for the birthday
Wishing: I had a few more me’s or a few less interests!
Enjoying: expanding out into the world, being employed in an area I totally love and get to use and share skills my family don’t request from me. Knowing I’m going away to see my family really soon!
Waiting: for seeds to sprout, ideas to bloom, kettle to boil, to let go
Liking: that I am learning, yes I am, to go at my own pace a bit more!
Wondering: if I can just keep on nurturing that second of time before habitual response, that allows me to look below words to the unmet needs of another instead of taking things so personally
Loving: laying on the ground, half in the gentler sun of the season, feeling supported
Hoping:it will rain, my children will grow through to adulthood with good inner and outer health
Marvelling: at Cedar riding a bike so happily and strongly suddenly!
Wishing: for some tips on what I could do, see, eat and hear when I go to Melbourne solo soon!
Needing: continuity, rain, sea, to express myself, camping, fire, flowers
Smelling: geranium oil, sawdust, sunshine
Wearing: a gift from my mama
Following: my nose to the blossoming tamarillo tree! Wow .
Noticing: the changing light, the cosy nights, a tall adolescent,
Knowing: this too shall pass.
Thinking: I’m ready for all this change
Bookmarking: poetry by Timothy McLaughlin
Opening: my eyes before the sun
Giggling: with a beautiful bearded fellow
Feeling: grateful, anticipation, loss, tolerance
