I think it interesting how words seem to ebb and flow – there are times when the words clamor to be released from my brain into the world and I have to give in because I cannot contain them any longer. Then there are the times when there are no words.Instead there is a complete inability to come up with cohesive thoughts to share or comments to make. That’s where I have been for a few days, perhaps the result of working on a project that is not coming from my heart, but from a request. It seems my creativity is diminished when something isn’t coming from my heart.
In any event, I have decided to Play along with Cee . Perhaps this exercise will reawaken the words.
A class you wish you would have taken? I think I’m more of an independent learner, so when I decide there is something I want to learn to do, I read all I can find about it. Although I know in past years there are things I’ve wished I had studied, at this point in my life I rarely feel that drive.
Are you scared of heights? I think not so much heights as edges. I do fine high up if I have something that I feel protects or guards me – like a wall that is close to waist high. Edges, however – deadly. Someday I’d love to do the Sky Walk at the Grand Canyon, but I’m quite certain that one or two steps in, my heart would stop beating, or burst from my chest because it was beating too hard.
Are you a good cook? If so, do you consider yourself a chef? I am a decent cook when I try, but I absolutely have to have written instructions in the form of a recipe. My daughter is more an instinctive cook and I envy her that talent. So yes, I think I’m a reasonably good cook, but no, I am far from being a chef or even chef material.
What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. Despite my consistent complaining about the wildfire smoke in the air this past week (and some weeks preceding) I have appreciated the space and peace around me, and the freedom to spend my days more or less as I wish. Many things make me smile, including the fact that now both my son and daughter are in this country, even in the same time zone and my daughter is close enough with sufficient space in her home that I can visit her frequently. My son is a bit further away and does not have space, but I know he is near and there’s much comfort in that.
No photos this week, largely because our air quality has been keeping me mostly in the house. And then there’s that lack of interest that’s been lingering around me. So I shall simply wish you enough in each of your days.
