The Blog of Change
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!
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.
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 do really love documentaries and watch them often. Some of my favorite topics including Cults/Religious Life, True Crime, Tudor Royalty, Food History and Drag
Bob's Burgers What We do in the Shadows Vera RPDR Dragula
I'm not into television a lot but when I commit to a show - it is true love only. lol
I've never been very good at crafts but I definitely appreciate peoples' talent and hard work.
Are the following things crafts? Baking Gardening Letter-writing without mail art Thrifting
Because if they are - then I guess I am crafty! :)
Crystals, Aromatherapy Oils, Coffee, Stained Glass, things that look like they were owned by a Grandmother, Lavender, Vinyl, Spotify, Raspberries, Lace Curtains. I just moved to a new place in NC and I'm learning that with each new place comes a new opportunity to repurpose what I own and make a house a home (d'awwwww). I've found that my stuff does fit pretty seamlessly and that my palette for this place is falling into emerald green, lemon yellow, magenta and orchid. Yeah - I don't know either.
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.
Here is a brief synopsis of what live music was like for me when you go see live music (someday, it will happen again)
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.
I like to swap in flat mailing most of all - because the creativity of what fits into a envelope is fun. But, I also really just want, more than anything, a thoughtful letter. It can be any stationery with any handwriting and I will appreciate that you've taken the time to share your thoughts and your life. And in turn, that's what I'm intending on giving. But, I do like to share postcards and silly inclusions when the mood strikes.
I'm thinking about more email swaps again, but we'll see - as I spend so much time emailing not for fun. lol
