Shake and Bakes are my quarterly check-ins (CHICKENS!). They used to be weekly – but this year they are happening in line with the moon. I use these posts to … shake out the happenings of my work and my life in general in an attempt to Shake off the bad and Bake in the good. It’s about … gratitude, paying attention and now..living by the moon.
Last Quarter – Pike Moon
I find myself focusing on my progress on the novel again today as I think about my “progress.”
I am flying solo for a few weeks now, as The Raggedy Man is off on a sailing adventure in the Virgins Islands (LUCKY buggah). And I’m really feeling a desire to HUNKER DOWN and work.
That said… let’s get at ‘er so I can get back to work.
Θ (theta) earth – home – touch
Φ (phi) air – relationships – scent
Χ (chi) fire – work – vision
Ξ (ksi) water – health – taste
Ψ (psi) quintessence – spirit – hearing/listening
Any thoughts on this from fellow meditators?
I’d love to hear how often you sit, for how long and what technique works best for you.
Things to Wrap Up before the DARK moon
I would love love LOVE to finish up with this timeline work by Friday and be heading into “real” revision work by the new moon.
I know this is “real” work too – but I can now see a heap of new scenes that need writing and I’m itching to get at them.
If a scene lands in my lap – I will totally take the time to write it. But, overall, I plan to stick with what I am doing with the timeline/journeys/relationships and see it through to the end. I am finding so much… I think it is worth it… even if it feels like “drudge work” some days.
I’ll let you know how it turns out.
I’ve an urge to play Drift Away again for you… but let us embrace the Random instead.
Tom Russell’s fabulous song for Edith Piaf is playing right now on my Folk Roots station….It’s called Chocolate Cigarettes and it just might crack yer heart open.
I send it from me… and the Raggedy One…
Thanks for popping by.
Go easy ~p
