Be joyful even though you have considered all the facts...practice resurrection. -Wendell Berry

I am feeling a little full today.  Full of the experiences of these past few weeks, full of world news, full of things that are working themselves out, or not.

So, I headed to the kitchen, for some meditation.  And what a bummer. I managed to produce a failed batch of chocolate pudding, using one of my favorite recipes (Enchanted Broccoli Forest, by Mollie Katzen).  So I vacuumed the downstairs and cleaned the bathroom.  Hmmm...that was fun.

Being temporarily adrift is not an earth shattering problem, I know.  I live a charmed life and I do not take it for granted. I think I just need a little grey space to process all that's going on in my head and heart. 

I will take a walk this weekend, that always helps.  Look for signs of spring along the way!  And maybe I can squeeze in hour in my studio after lunch today. 

Life is an adventure, eh?

Faith and doubt, both are needed.
 -Lillian Smith

There lives more faith in honest doubt than in half the creeds.

  1. ((Karen)) (those are hug thingies) You're probably also physically tired from all that traveling and mentally tired from processing all the new places, people, etc. Sad that the healing chocolate pudding didn't work! A walk outdoors and some studio time both sound like excellent ideas. Also just a cup of your favorite warm beverage and losing yourself in a fun book for a little while.
