Pack to actively seeking penpals! It's been a weird journey of life and I would like to share it with people that can commiserate and celebrate the ups and downs!
Long story short: I'm divorced and I'm learning to nourish myself and I've gotten pretty good at it. I have so many interests that it is kind of baffling!
I totally miss the women that I met through swapping/pen-palling and I'm looking to gain some email/blog friends to empower and be empowered.
I've just moved out on my own after needing to find respite in my childhood home for a few years. Living with a cat roommate pretty much rules.
The Four Agreements. If you have not read this book...run to the nearest library or bookstore and do something about it. This is the only book that I have in both print and audiobook that I constantly go back to for reassurance of my path and I've met countless women that have really allowed themselves to be bathed in it's wisdom. This is a life-changing read.
There are others outside of the self-help rathole. I currently found a set of awesome European Culinaria books that I cannot stop looking at. I want to see every place, try every recipe and do every thing.
I also love cozy mysteries. There is something about a book you can finish in a few hours that I just love. It totally takes you to a place while you are on the treadmill or wherever. lol.
I'm not much of a movie buff, but I have some that I really love:
Moonstruck Lost in Translation The Witches of Eastwick Many selections from Mystery Science Theater 3000
I just saw this awesome documentary called, "We are X," and it totally blew me away! Check it out!
The only show that I make sure I have seen is, "Bob's Burgers." The rest is kind of background noise. That said, I will make an effort to watch Hercule Poirot when I can. I can't give up a good mystery!
I've kind of gotten away from crafting in this transitional period in my life, as I've tried desperately to reduce my clutter and possessions.
Now that I have needed to furnish my own place, I have started to cultivate a small collection of thrifted things that I really love. I find that treasure-hunting at thrift stores is really one of my favorite activities. Even if I don't buy these things, just sharing their presence is sometimes enough for me.
I've also found that the money that it saves is amazing! Can you believe that things cost when they're brand new?!
Is gardening a craft? I love planting and caring for plants so much. I am lucky enough to tend to many gardens. It really is a way to stay rooted to the Earth in a real way.
Crystals, Aromatherapy Oils, Coffee, Stained Glass, things that look like they were owned by a Grandmother, Lavender, Vinyl, Spotify, Raspberries, Lace Curtains.
I've recently really been into the colour yellow. I'm not sure that it necessary looks great on me, but yellow things have been slowly creeping their way into my life. Yellow is incredibly cheerful and even takes a spiritual meaning in some cultures. I'm probably going to dye my lace curtains yellow and let them greet me every morning. :)
I collect Classical, Opera, Classic Country, Bluegrass and Vocalist records. I could easily collect more, but honestly...every radio station in the world plays Classic Rock and the like...there is no need to own things that I hear every waking minute. One of the things that I am searching for most of the time when I am rooting is records from The Mills Brothers. There are thousands of different pressings from them but I enjoy looking and finding different sleeves. I'm slowly starting to amass a decent collection from them.
I also love going to live shows and try to get to as many as I can. I don't drink or smoke...so I guess this is the thing that I am willing to spend more money than I should doing. lol. This year, I have seen Marty Stuart, TSOL, Dead Kennedys, GBR, Placido Domingo in Luisa Miller (at the Met!), Judas Priest, various performances by the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, The Savoy Big Band. I am slated to go to a bluegrass festival this week (to see The Del McCoury Band, The Bluegrass Congress, Ricky Skaggs, etc.) and I'll be seeing Radiohead, The Foo Fighters, Steve Miller and hopefully Tenacious D through the rest of the year. Along with many others I haven't committed to yet.
I love talking about live music and would enjoy a penpal that loves it, too.
Penpal letters! I am not much a mail crafter, but I do like to send along flat prizes. I'm all about content and I hope that there are those that share that sentiment.
I look forward to hearing from you.
