|Brighid's Vigil ~ a spiritual practice.|
Blogging. I haven't been writing. Personal challenge: chronicle something daily either in words or images. Basic strategy: KISS ~ Keep it simple, Sweetpea.
Today, I'm on the second leg of a Vigil. The brick oven is calling and I'm mixing up some dough to live in the fridge awhile for either bread or pizzas. Various spinning tools are screaming for attention ~ especially now that I've got new wool from this past Sheep & Wool. I was actually in my studio painting after a month-long hiatus imposed by crazy life circumstances and daily busy-ness. (Nothing worth photographing though.) My journal is, of course, my touchstone for daily creativity and rumination. And then there's meditations with Susan Piver's Open Heart Project that have become a new, easier daily practice. No chanting. No words. Just sitting. I download the audio to my iPod for my nightly sittings before bed.
And so I leave you with random shots from around the abode.
