Today is clear and bright and medium cold. At noon I will go to a nearby library for a free Visual Journaling workshop. I had thought of not going but was in the library yesterday and saw that only 6 people were signed up so I will go to support the teacher. Meanwhile my dreams are of gaping holes in the ground and malfunctioning septic systems. I think I need to watch "Cold Comfort Farms" to cheer my inner self up.
I awoke this morning with two clear thoughts. A) I want to travel. Possibly soon to go to NYCity to see the Bonnard show. But I also mean wider travel. B) I want to explore photography a bit more, get an upgraded camera. Although I have to confess that when I read about photography my brain closes down. So maybe I need to learn via a hands-on class.
I am worried about my son. But I see that something will always come up to worry me and distract me from my path. Mom, where to live, now my son. Previous to that my friend A. Previous to that my Dad. What I need to do is to refocus continually on what I need and want for myself. Not discarding, of course, doing what I can for those in need.
