Rock Being By the Pond

Happy February! I’ve made a decision. I make many, and most never get out of the holding pen. This one just made it out into the WORLD! I have had a really hard time getting back to any kind of consistent “work” (read life affirming force), or to begin anew. I keep making the typical promises to myself. I will begin this Monday, when I get a good scan, when I feel 90% normal etc. It will never happen this way, just like those diets and new years resolutions don’t. My life is just not going to allow it for me, I will not allow it, so I made a decision.

It is February, the shortest month of the year, and I am going to post something on this blog for each of the 28 days. It may just be a photo or a quote, but something. Something to begin a new habit. I must.

Edit March 21st:

Another silly goal gone awry. Allow me to disabuse my own notions.

I will do what I can as I can whether it be writing this blog, creating brilliant art, or sitting in this chair making origami butterflies. If I return to a steady practice I will, and perhaps I won’t. I will do something no doubt, and it is time to stop predicting what that will be when my days are as unpredictable as the weather. Cloudy with a chance of spring BTW.

Today we see evidence of one of the wonderful things that has occurred since Cancer, yes there have been a few! The “Rock Fairy” aka Kim Mailhot just sent me this incredible “Rock Being”, in a handmade felt sack, in a handmade paper envelope. It is far more stunning than this photo allows, and one of more than a few wonderful mail surprises I’ve gotten! These gifts are far more valuable than anyone can know. A bright spot in an often very dark day. The walk down the drive to the mailbox is not so long, yet some days it looks miles long. It is worth it.

Thank You Kim! Thank You World!

PS I know it is February 2nd today. I will be a day delayed, so be it :-)

    You can do it! I look forward to your posts.

    Today is an even better day to start than yesterday, because I just read that Candlemas is a good day to dedicate yourself an intention. :)

    You know we love to hear from you – whatever you want to share – however little or much.
    I’m glad you’re pushing yourself a little bit (to do something that’s meaningful to you) but not so much as to stress you. (Short posts can be very powerful.)

    I missed this the first time round ! I am so glad you felt the love in this Rock Being. And I am glad it made you smile.
    Whatever you bring to the world on any given day is good stuff, Gwyn. Good living with, and in spite of, a really shitty deck.
    Sending you much love, Brave One !

    it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
