Right now I am doing a tiny little project that involves zippers. I have only once made something (successfully) with a zipper before. I stitched it in by hand. Today, I am using the machine. Don't laugh too hard, but I am very proud of this.
Last night, I spent some time doing some writing exercises. I love writing long hand with a nice pen on paper that is a little scratchy. I love words flowing onto paper and watching my handwriting as it gets prettier and prettier the more I write. I love seeing the ideas that I didn't know were in there. I love it when a little phrase or idea writes itself across a page with grace and beauty. It is a great place to find the flow and pour the heart and calm the racing mind.
And oh, I am full of racing heart and mind. My chest is full of fluttery anticipation. Each day bringing us closer to things I don't fully understand (is there anything we can fully understand? ever?) Answers and questions that come out at the same time. Hopes and dreams that travel right alongside every day realities.
