to myself.

Dear Amanda,

These are aspects of my life in which I find joy. Best of luck in the future with fulfilling your dreams.

Knitting, sewing, crocheting, cooking, organizing, gardening, canning.
Conversation, talk radio, learning (school/personal), new activities, travel, listening, reading, writing.
Family, girl friends, lovers, community, diversity, children.
Water, dirt, mountains, rivers, trees, tall grass, farm land, lakes/ponds/oceans, shade, sunshine, wind, the smell of alfalfa.
Bicycles, long drives, quiet walks, spandex, swimming, dance, nudity.
Tea, morning, skin, smiles, vision, dreams, scent, dresses, laughter, love, fresh produce.

I celebrate life daily. I have the desire to disappear from the radar for a while, hide in the shadows of great mountains and great people, reflecting on the work I have done and finding meaning of what is ahead. How can my life be better? What is fulfillment?

  1. I have enjoyed your recent posts as-of-late. They illuminate when things feel wrought and rained on (for me), but they remind me to look further on...
