While this past weekend wasn’t my first trip to the Brushy Mountain summit, it was the first time I actually enjoyed the experience.
Asking for help is difficult, or at least is for me. I don’t want to be a burden on anyone. Nor do I like the feeling of something being beyond my control or ability.
Halloween never ranked high on our family holiday celebrations, or at least I don’t recall it being. I desperately wanted a store-bought costume with a mask and the body printed on those plastic hospital gown style covers.
Nearing the end of month, its once again time to consider some things from the past month. These snippets – four somethings – are a small look at how I’ve spent this beginning of autumn. My morning walks, which I started in July, have long since been abandoned. Like it or not, the days are getting shorter. All the more reason to cherish the small moments.
Currently I’m reading Walking on Water by Madeleine L’Engle. She insists all story is truth. Going beyond the genres of fiction and non-fiction, the heart of anything worth reading speaks truth into our lives.
My personality requires routine in most things, and writing is no exception. While I wanted to participate in the Write 31 challenge – posting something every day for the month of October – I also know my limitations.
I never got around to the August fun-times post, and while a part of me still hopes to, let’s be realistic. Perhaps I’ll find a casual way to throw in photos of me camping just outside the gates of a (decommissioned) prison after a stellar concert.
If not, I’ll learn to live, knowing I can still make memories even if the only people who know about them are me and Jay (and the random stranger friends I made along the way.)
I celebrated the deeper conversations #10thingstotellyou prompted, but we can’t always choose our talents.
I missed most of the 10 Things to Tell You prompt thanks to my visit to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando. I appreciate the call for deeper conversation on social media, and want to complete the prompts despite being outside the 10 days.
