There’s so much external noise, sometimes it’s hard to hear myself think. Lately, I’ve been trying to make some space.
I’m not keeping score. Really, I’m not.
I’ve been cultivating a mediation practice for 7 years now. Wow. I only figured that out when I went to put away my 2014 meditation journal and realized I had a bunch of Moleskin notebooks already in storage.
Before I knew it, the weekend I’d been anticipating for so long had finally arrived. I was on a plane to Chicago for the 2014 Mindfulness Meditation Retreat, organized by Michele Gaspar, to see old friends and meet some new ones.
Call me a modern day pioneer woman.
For my birthday, I received a book called “Modern Pioneering“. The author, Georgia Pellegrini, is a cook, gardener, outdoor adventurer and do-it-yourself kind of gal. As someone who just got her own Leatherman multi-tool (the Charge AL model, just in case you were wondering), I can identify with her.
In the spirit of self-sufficiency, I’m making my own maple syrup. This is the third year that my husband and I have done it. So Canadian, eh?
I’d forgotten my iPhone in the front seat of the truck, which meant my husband had to turn around and drop it off to me at the train station. As he passed me the phone, he said “You’re going to work on your mindfulness this weekend, right?”. Yeah.
Just turned 100…my 100th blog post, that is! Can’t believe that I’ve been able to keep at this blogging thing for more than two years now.
