Laughter and Conversation
Whynot Pottery's 30 Year Celebration and New Earth Fabrication's Open House were both great fun this past weekend. We had beautiful weather for the show at Whynot. Many folks came out to be the first to try Four Saints St. Nicholas Christmas Ale, and do some shopping too. There weren't a huge amount of people at the Open House, but those that were there were quality folks! Chuck Brodsky never fails to delight me with his wonderful music, stage presence, and all around niceness. A group of young farm interns were great fun, some of the funniest folks I've met in quite a while. We let the pups out while they were still here, and it was a delight to watch them all together around the bonfire. I can't remember the last time I laughed so much.
I've been pondering this space here, wondering if I should continue this blog. It seems the blogs with dedicated, commenting followers have fairly consistent content, whether that's gardening, recipes, artful endeavors, beautiful photography, homemaking, etc. I realize this blog is eclectic, rather much like my life. One post may be about the garden, another on my latest craft project, yet another on New Earth's latest biofuel project, the pond, or the pups. Or maybe all of those rolled into one.
I read something that struck a chord on Maya's lovely blog, and it is that she intends for her blog to be a conversation, rather than a journal. That's it exactly. I know how busy we all are these days. And I think you know I believe it's all good. I've just learned to pay attention to where the energy flows in my life, and it feels as though this space is lacking in energy at this point. I'm sure there will be things I want to share here, but I'm going to let go of any idea of how often that needs to be. There are plenty of things in my life that could use an influx of good energy, and so for now, that feels right. If you have thoughts about what you'd especially like to see here, or things you wouldn't care if you never saw again, feel free to comment.
