When I sit down to write these posts, I have no idea what is going to come out. Some days I want to write something deep and meaningful and powerful. And it just doesn't happen. That's the weird thing about writing this blog - the more I think about what to write, the harder it … Continue reading Time
Today it rained and rained and rained. I'm in New Hampshire and found out that when it rains and rains and rains here, water comes into our basement. That's good to know. The river is flowing like crazy, so the water is light brown from the stirred up sand. The little sandy spot I planned … Continue reading Rain
It's the tulip time of year and today as I was driving I saw so many sweet and perfect tulips. My favorite were the beds in the Dunkin Donuts drive-thru. I was able to snap a photo. I spent the day updating signage for the farm. They're opening up this weekend for ice cream for … Continue reading Tulips
Downs and Ups
Yesterday Christian had four cords of wood delivered to the house. We have multiple giant piles of wood on our lawn. He's been prepping the shed area where we pile store it. The old wood has to come out to make room for the new wood to dry out. We didn't burn as much wood … Continue reading Downs and Ups
A new day.
After a good nights sleep, I woke up with a new perspective. I told myself, Pam, you don't have to do anything you don't want to do. And then I thought about that. I don't have to write a blog post, I don't have to do my morning pages. I don't have to be good. … Continue reading A new day.
I've been thinking about this blog and my patterns with writing for it. I always write at the end of the day. My days start early, between 4 and 5 a.m. and I typically sit down to write at 7:00 p.m. My brain is tired. I've noticed I am more free and open with what … Continue reading Kind lady.
Today I decided to have a little burning ceremony. I started a fire in the fire pit and then went upstairs and got a pile of my old journals. The plan was to read a little bit of each and then throw it in the fire. I didn't want to go to deep into the … Continue reading Burn it.
(As I drive around, I see the forsythia is in all it's yellow glory. Spring is here. Also allergies are here. And Zyrtec is here too. The Zyrtec is helping, but I still feel like I'm in a fog. So a fog-induced post is what I shall write.) What goes on inside of you is … Continue reading Inside
The Artist’s Way
The Artist's Way is a magical book. Our group just started week 8 and each week, it feels like Julia Cameron knows exactly what is coming up for me. She is talking directly to me about it. “One of the great misconceptions about the artistic life is that it entails great swaths of aimlessness. The … Continue reading The Artist’s Way
I’m in charge here.
I don't know whether to laugh or cry about this but I think I'm finally understanding what a boundary is. I've taken classes, read books, watched You Tube videos about boundaries. I knew I needed to work on "having boundaries" but I never could quite get there. The only way I can explain it is … Continue reading I’m in charge here.
