Emagene hates sweet potatos Loves music class! Grocery aisle
Her: 2 generations older than me, picking her trusted brands:
demonte and huntse
Me: picking my trusted organic brands: Muir Glen and Eden Same tomato-y outcome Birds- rain forest -spring Dog is antsy I'm antsy Just sitting and waiting 'nothing is impossible. The word itself says, 'I'm possible.'"
Right now march 26, 2012 I'm watching the washing blow in the wind Listening to the contented peeping of free ranging chicks Wearing freshly washed flip flops Not wearing shoes because they need to be washed again Amused by the ramblings of my 2-year old Watching the sun tea turn deep amber Waiting for news about the man's job Wondering how how many gallons are being pumped through the
sprinkler in the name of cooling,learning and over-watering
June 3, 2012
Look around you and see what excites you; explore that. What if everything excites me? Gardening, livestock, sustainably
using the land I live on, animation, theatre, lighting,
photography, traveling, doing nothing, doing everything,
dancing, connecting, yoga, sitting under trees, sitting
in trees, snuggling, painting,
it seems that my inner mind is distracted refereeing battles.
My Self now and my Self 10 years ago are constantly waging war
as to which life style brought me the most fulfillment.
Nothin highlights inner struggles quite like a seasonal shift
into winter with its focus on the home hearth and self, the
passing of loved ones or a meteor shower. And I have all three
at my disposal tonight!
Ah! My self of ten years ago would scoff at my self now. Giving
up a room above a pub in a busy neighborhood of London for a cozy
house on the outskirts of town surrounded by chickens and my own
child. The me now wishes I had saved some of that money I spent on
fun and paid more toward student loan avoidment. The me now giggles
because it seems fairly standard for women entering their mid-30s
to write a letter to their 20-year old self. What would the me now
tell the me back then? Don't leave London! You'll never make it
back across the border! You'll get stuck in America! Maybe. I
may say smart things like keep up the focus. Give up the awesome
trip to spain to be the 3rd AD on that low budget film. Maybe. But
I think I would mostly say: Good job following your heart, living
your dreams, exploring what you had access to, and keep on going.
No regrets! Create learning opportunities and your perseption will
keep changing for the positive.
