She’s… on the move.  Popping on to wave hello and to craft a super quick chicken.

Time for a lil Quick Draw…yes?

The Quick Chicken (The Doings that help me with the Being):

  • Write: 6/7
  • Move: 7/7
  • Matt/Sit: 2/7
  • Music: 2/7



Enjoy each moment…pay good attention.

Enjoy clearing spaces and the shiftings to let Spring in…

And… Enjoy the trip and all that it holds.  The faces of friends.  The land.  The sound of prayers rising up.


The Result:

Grand and… to be continued…


  • – Fretting about this and that…. what good is the fretting?  Yeesh.
  • – Car troubles.
  • – slipping into the sticky sticky “too many things at once” trap.


  • + my new “low tide” boots that allowed me to get out onto the river in the kayak while the ice was still on – withOUT freeeeeezing.  A tech miracle.  YAY MEC!
  • + Kayaking out into the ice and listening to the tinkling song of spring arriving on the river.  I can’t explain how magical, wonderful and …. healing those few hours were.

The Thing that needs Baking In MOST:

Take that time.  When the ice is coming off – go out and sit with it. 

It only comes once a year.

This has been baking in all winter.  Get outside when the sun is shining.  Shift the schedule to meet the day.  It is worth it.  And know that you will return and still get the “work” done.  It’s all good.


See above 😉

Short and sweet – but that’s it for me this week.

Twas quite fantastic.

And we had birthday fun too.

May your week be Full of Lovely Love and Giggles

Thanks so much for popping by.

go easy, friends


In homage to Havi’s Friday Chickens over on the The Fluent Self — This is the place I review my week – in an attempt to track some things – like progress on my novel and… living intentionally. I shake out my week and lay it out. Let the hard burn off and the good sink in. Call it an experiment in paying attention.

Comments are cherished here. Discussion is adored. If you’d rather talk in private – drop me a line.
