Grateful for my 2 kids, 2 granddaughters, 2 brothers and their wives and step-families, granddog, friends, and Brother David
I would do my technical writing without all the angst and pain and procrastination. There. That was easy.
Dear Holly and Ose and all, I think my main ongoing creativity now is looking at the improv quilt I’m creating, which is lying on the spare bed, along with lots of fabric scraps. So I see it many times a day, and sometimes I get an idea for where to go next.
I’m seeking ways to voice my concerns about climate change, without much success yet.
Lighting candles on gratefulness helps me – this allows me to let go of my angst about the situation. Then I can act, perhaps with an email, without clouding my actions with angst of my own. After lighting my last 2 candles, I sent emails to both people and then received nice emails in reply.
‘Love it, Marnie – thank you 🤗😘
Thank you, Mike –
Wow, Holly – what a gift – and so timely 👻🎃💀
At first I thought the girl in the attic[?] was watching on her laptop 😜
Dear Holly, at my advanced age, I’m starting to get into enjoying the stuff I’ve accumulated, instead of leaving so much of it stored away. It’s fun 🙂
Thank you, Katrina 🤗
That’s wonderful, Holly. Eeeww – there’s a spider on my fridge!
Thanks, Miichele – I haaven’t tried the e-cards but will do so 🙂
I’m fine, too, Maurice – thanks 😊
Smiles to you, sunnypatti – 🤗🥰🙃😊😘😄
How are you, Maurice? 🙂
White squirrels – of course you all celebrate them – Enjoy, Holly!
I was actually relieved that my granddaughters weren’t horribly worried about climate change, like the book seemed to think they should be. So be it.
Dear Holly, “Psychological Roots of the Climate Crisis” comes to mind, as I read about your concern with the climate. I got one useful idea from it, about holding something dear to me; but so much of it is a downer. My teen and tween granddaughters don’t seem to be worried about the climate, for better and worse.
You deserve it, Ose 🤗🥰
That’s wonderful, Carla – congratulations 🎊 🎉 🎈
Dear Stormy Weather, I’m enjoying Jill Bolte Taylor’s book, ‘Whole Brain Living,’ which tells about 4 parts of the brain and how to work with them to deal with negative feelings. Brother David Steindl-Rast has books that I read long ago, such as ‘Gratefulness, the Heart of Prayer.’
