Some Things Just Can’t Be Finished

This is one of those things. I did finish this “shlanket” night before last. This is Outline by Beata Jezek from Hedgehog Fibres. Both of them are, the pink and blue one being the first I started knitting and the red/pink/gold one I like. The lightish one, no. Last night, while putzing around with it,…

Center

If you’ve read this blog for a long time, you know I practice mindfulness. At least I try to practice mindfulness ……. meditation, general mind control, centering myself when I’m off balance – all of those things. I can’t live outside my center. I am miserable when I’m in the midst of fear, anxiety, stress,…

Life Hums Along

Seriously folks, this has been a rough 11 weeks here in The Land of the Free and The Home of the Brave. Especially if you support our new president. Definitely if you support our new president. Absolutely if you support our new president. Naturally, I write about what is important to me, things I think…

Listening to God

It is said that prayer is talking to God and meditation is listening to God. Listening is the key. I can safely say that each of us, in our own way, are trying to find happiness. That feeling of content, the joy of simple things, the comfort of no anxiety or worries. It is a…

Someday I’m Going to be Happy

via Daily Prompt: Someday Many times I have said to myself, someday I’m going to be happy. As soon as I get that power job, have so much money in the bank, buy that new house, move to another city, quit working, after my husband retires, after I win the lottery …….. a lot of…

Simple Living

“Be as simple as you can be; you will be astonished to see how uncomplicated and happy your life can become.”  ― Paramahansa Yogananda Simple. An easy word and a lovely thought. How do we simplify our lives? It’s actually, well, simple. Accepting what is without fighting it gets us to a place where we are…

Crossing the Great Divide

via Daily Prompt: Crossing The great divide, the grape skin veil between the world of duality and confusion, the crossing over into the realization of the Infinite. How to cross that divide, that divide which is wide and horribly scary and which must be crossed before life can be lived with grace? How do we…

Plain Vanilla

I’ve written about the extreme level of hate flying around in the world-confusion these days. It’s getting worse by the minute. There is little civil discourse that doesn’t result in receiving a message of some sort on social media to the fact that you’re a fucking asshole and shut up. I’m tired of it. Enough…

Living Inside Out

via Daily Prompt: Interiorly I’ve always lived inside out. My inside hasn’t always been content, mindful and in agreement with my purpose though. I came from a home with talented people, but with emotionally scarred people too. My mother was a holy terror and constantly had the family in an uproar about something or other….

Year

via Daily Prompt: Year A year is 12 months. 364 days make up a year but months aren’t even because we have 30 in some 31 in the others and even 28 or 29 in one of them. The 28 or 29 one is the longest month of the year. I’m happy to say my…

Making It

This little beauty might look a bit busy to some, but to me it’s perfection. Luckily this top was pieced mostly from fabric that I dyed BEFORE I bought the fantastic cotton poplin that takes color like crazy but is so dense I can hardly quilt through it. I should be able to quilt through…

Almost A Year

It’s been almost exactly a year since I’ve posted anything. It was a fun year, full of making, planning, color. It was also a year I spent thinking. I have always thought too much and sometimes I wish I could remove my brain and give it a good clean. Sort of a disinfectant kind of…
