From Calm To Clamor

Last year I spent searching for engrossments. Ways to connect and feel purposeful, alive. 

Labor day I visited close friends and others in November. I decluttered the house. I went shopping at Kris Kinder, helped with Lonely Tower's 12th Night Event and attended the Clothiers Symposium. I started this blog, took up Tai Chi and found my way through spring. 

Then boom. The last six weeks have been nuts. I've had as many things to do as I did the previous six months.

Since April 1, I traveled to visit family and friends, revamped my craft room, created an award scroll, taught a class and helped with another class. I had good out-of-town friends visit

I still have a poster to make, catch up the Lonely Tower Roll of Arms and prepare for camping at Calontir's Lilies War. All by mid-June.

Of course, neither time period discussed includes daily life things like funerals and family holiday celebrations, taking dogs to the groomer, walking two miles most days, my doctor visits, and occasionally being a Granny-Nanny. Those just happen.


Thankfully, I have learned to pace myself. Barring any major intrusive event, I will survive and thrive.
