i've been outside in the hot sunshine, taking photos, writing more in paper journals and less in blogland, digging my fingers into the dirt, planning paint colours for the house trim and new steps, plotting out whether we can afford the new back deck this year and figuring we probably can, laughing with family and lunching with friends, working and spending more time away from the computer, it is good i think :)

I am learning to be silent. To sit in meditation. To live fully and alone. I'm riding my bike and baking cranberry bread in the toaster oven out on the patio. I'm preparing for the onslaught of an Arizona summer. I'm listening to friends and to myself and handing all I hear to that higher power who can do something about it. I'm planning a new knitting project and cleaning off my desk. I'm reading the Abby of the Arts website and blog. I am being humbled by the amazing poetry I read. I am signing up for classes in writing and art. I am climbing out of this crusty cocoon hoping my wings will open.
