Walking Slowly Forward

Walking Slowly Forward

I don’t know why I can’t do things I enjoy. They have to have a purpose (like putting things away–I enjoy that AND it achieves something necessary). Not just BE the purpose.

We are healed from suffering only by experiencing it to the full. Marcel Proust

We are healed from suffering only by experiencing it to the full. Marcel Proust

I guess my word for 2013 would be …tribulation? adversity? The prompt for this first day of Reverb13 is …Where did you start 2013? Wow. It’s pretty horrible, but then 2013 has been a pretty horrible year. I can say some things are better. Em’s  school is SO much better. She doesn’t dread every day. […]

And Memories Fade

Sometimes there are moments there are songs. Things that make you feel  something. And  you hear a song. It’s odd how much that song encapsulates everything that you were and everything that you are in your secret heart. I got together with two friends that hadn’t seen each other in over 20 years and friends […]

Home is a place you grow up wanting to leave, and grow old wanting to get back to~John Ed Pearce

Well then, I almost forgot to write this. I guess I should do it before think about it too much to make any sense. I was thinking and talking tonight to my friend L about how friendships change. And this is probably a deeper subject than I’m capable of dealing with right now. Honestly I […]

The great thing about getting older is that you don’t lose all the other ages you’ve been. ~Madeleine L’Engle

  One of the ways I prepare my thoughts for what I’m going to write is once the topic is lodged in my brain I look for a quote that fits the feeling I’m feeling. Usually I stay with the quote, sometimes—like the last entry I don’t. I started off with Mr. T’s quote about […]

“How did it get so late so soon? Its night before its afternoon. December is here before its June. My goodness how the time has flown. How did it get so late so soon?” Dr. Seuss

I thought I could back track through to the beginning of January to participate in a year long photo project of one a week, but all my pictures early in January are of school maintenance projects or equipment that needs to be checked. I can add these though. I did cut my hair off. I’m […]

Sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast. Lewis Carroll

DECEMBER 24 – EVERYTHING’S OK What was the best moment that could serve as proof that everything is going to be alright? And how will you incorporate that discovery into the year ahead? (Author: Kate Inglis)   Hmmm…Well this year and as I’ve gotten older I’ve figured out that while everything may not be ok—indeed […]

When I stand before thee at the day’s end, thou shalt see my scars and know that I had my wounds and also my healing. Rabindranath Tagore

December 19 – Healing What healed you this year? Was it sudden, or a drip-by-drip evolution? How would you like to be healed in 2011? (Author: Leonie Allan)   I don’t know that I healed from much. Some of my scars are as healed as they get.  I’ll always have nightmares, that’s the nature of […]

Do Overs

Have you ever wanted a Do Over? Some time in your life– either a pivotal moment or a series of events that might have been turned around that you’d just like to roll back. I have some of those. But I wonder, how far can you go with that and still keep the good that […]

youth

And I’m sitting here supposed to be writing. And I find I have less and less blog entries in me anymore. Some of this is that time in life. Words fail when your entire being is going through such huge changes I guess. At least that is one theory. It certainly isn’t that things aren’t […]
