It's great to read what others have to share from their lives. Come visit! Hope everyone is beginning a terrific week!
My One Little Word is "wander", and while I haven't really been out of town, I have been trying a few new things. I am still weaving, but the new work at school has taken more of my time. I am traveling in a little while to visit my son, daughter-in-law and grandson, and I have plenty of terrific plans for the summer.
However, now that it is definitely spring, and the weather is wonderful, it's also time to get outside, to look for "other" kinds of wandering. I live near a huge wetlands, and have been trying to 'wander' over to do a little sketching and journaling. Also, since I can't go anywhere far, I've also been sketching from a few postcards and photos I have from past journeys. Here's a quote I put at the beginning of recent journals, and a couple of sketches, now recently a slice of my life.
from The Literary Traveler, Larry Dark, ed.
But one thing is certain: Those travelers who take their own small worlds with them wherever they go might just as well stay home. For only when we put aside our narrow expectations and rigid preconceptions can we discover the wonders of the world outside ourselves, and within.
