My absence in this space has been the result of a self-moratorium on spinning my wheels. It was way overdue.
I made a list, (using an actual pencil and piece of paper) of the things I’ve neglected, the things on my ‘to-do’ list, the things I wanted to achieve in the short term, and oddly enough, not one of those things involved blogging, logging on to the www or scrolling through the facebook feed…
I found I needed to put some space between me and distractions. I needed some breathing room… so I’ve taken to reading ACTUAL books…those things that have hard covers and pages that need turning.
I’m walking 5 miles a day whether I need it or not.
I’m using the phone to actually make Calls to those whose voices I haven’t heard in much too long.
I’m exploring and taking snapshots and getting out in nature more.
So far, so good.
Happy First day of Autumn, Y’all. 🙂 Don’t forget to take care of you, first and foremost….the rest can wait.
“Maybe this is why we read, and why in moments of darkness we return to books: to find words for what we already know.”
