Of birdsong that is!
Last spring I was so lost in the gray days that seemed to stretch on forever that I would just look outside in the morning, sigh, and prepare for another nothing day. But choosing happiness, I look out at the gray day, step outside and tune in to the natural world. The birds are returning at a furious rate and the songs have gone from a symphony to a battle of the bands. Stepping out on the deck I breathe in the cool mountain air, laugh at the cacophony and allow myself to feel the world around me reawakening.
A benefit of blogging is being able to compose on the computer, rather than in notebooks, which has been my customary practice. I still keep a journal at hand when I am reading just to jot down quotes or ideas that strike me, but I am able to move to the computer and do the real work here. As a result I am continuing to refine my workspace and bring together the items that allow my creativity to flow on to paper. This has been such a fun and exciting process, it keeps me focused on my goals and I look forward to the time I can spend on my projects.
Today is my WordPress class at the library, hopefully I can get some tips on making this blog more interesting and connected with the rest of the blogosphere. If not, I will run home and sign up for the adult education classes offered this spring.
Words to focus on today: mindfulness, joy, learning
