Reflection & Resolutions

 Reflection:

Part of moving forward is clarifying the process.  I have read some of my past posts and it was difficult to recall the confusion I was in. Well if one is unable to choose a lane, so to speak, the universe will give you a nudge. Not so long story short.....  The ultimate decision was forced on me within a split second.  Nameless, decided not to work any longer and wished to find himself.  Okay, and what is your plan, said me, the logical one.  No plan, but talks with his sister, have been whispered for sometime, so I made the plan, and executed it all within days. I dropped him off at a halfway point everyone agreed to, nonsense promises spewing everywhere. I returned to what was home, with a WTF fog in my head. I packed up personal possessions, the rest donated.  Know further discussions since .

Back and forth between my adult children homes, then hit with Bells Palsy, last Nov.2020, and let us not forget the on going Pandemic, life has made me pay attention to Me.  Not a familiar subject.

I am recovering, not as quickly as I would like, but I am not as young as I once was.  So patience and peace is the pursuit everyday.  I share$ a larger apartment with my daughter / grandson, in my hometown.   The town is now a huge city and unrecognizable, so adjustments must be made as I figure out the remaining life ahead.

Resolution:

Which led me Here!,  where I loved to be, creatively, and virtually meeting very interesting and supportive  people. (She Who Seeks, blog on my Blog list) Thank you Deb!

Sharing our passions, and caring about what keeps our imaginations VIVID!  I am sharing creative mail with several virtual friends and I have a place to your right,> to enter your name ect. if you wish to join in.  Who does not like to receive, FUN mail!  Especially during the Magical Times of the year!

I always enjoy book suggestions, and will share mine as well.  Occasional Surprise Events and maybe even a Vlog post, who knows how adventurous I become.  

My new laptop is a bundle of surprises and I love my little mouse guiding me through the maze of tech possibilities.  

Now the path has been laid out,  thank you for visiting and be kind, Especially to yourself!

Let Us Gather our End of Year Projects!

 Sounds easy? right!  Well I am full of bright ideas, very little demands on me but low on talent. So I am struggling to find that creative person from not so very long ago and do it!  

I have stocked up on yarn , needles and my favorite knitting book. (Saltwater Mittens) I am blessed with one grandchild who will dress for the colder temperatures.  The three older ones think wearing socks in their shoes! not boots, is an inconvenience.

  Next, I really like to journal, toss paint about and doodle fine art. hahahahha! That has lead me to a quick and snappy Art class, online and at my own pace.  Good, I have the attention span of a toddler lately


Next, my favorite escape from this reality to one of my choosing...........Reading! Yes I am waiting on the next Crone Wars story, but I need distraction.  I finished " The Chelsea Girls" Fiona Davis which stirred my political bone. Not good, but I fought through.  The story of two women, the determination to follow their own paths, stand up to a male ego driven time, encouraged me to read on. The attraction I have to the Chelsea Hotel, with the history of artists who haunt it, blocked out that creativity sucking topic and I now have a companion for my other Favorite Chelsea Hotel tale. Fiona Davis mentioned Patti's book in the Acknowledgements, both timelines run into each other.  My library appreciates that.



If you enjoyed the "Winter of the Witch" trilogy, Katherine Arden, holding your breath as Vasilisa would head into danger at every chance , then you may enjoy my next folklore tale, "The Sisters of the Winter Wood" Rena Rossner.  While it is 35C outside it is minus that or more in the story.


                  

Attention all my " Fabulous Fun October FRiends"  If you do not already know, Alice Hoffman, has a NEW book coming out Oct 5? I could be wrong, it is the last of the Practical Magic series.  Yes! mine is on pre-order!



Oh! My! look at the time.  Ice Creme Time!  Yes!  when , where and as many times a day as I like!  Please share with me what projects of distraction  you have planned?  I will share more next time, keep safe!  Enjoy each day, remember, here in Canada, our winters stay past their expiry date!  xoxoxoxoxo
