Putting Winslow in daycare has felt more emotionally painful than the physical pains of giving birth to him. We spent last fall riding bikes, sitting by the river and having adventures in the forest together. Bumming around all day with this kid tops my list of favorite things to do, partly because he’s so enchanting, and partly because I’ve learned so many things about life through getting to be with his wise, old, owl soul.
SHOULD YOU KEEP YOUR JOURNALS?
There is discussion (among journal keepers) on whether or not you should keep your journals over time. Some suggest getting rid of old journals because keeping them around is like hanging on to old energy and to the past.
Some say that keeping journals is sacred and rather important because it documents the unique life path that you are on, and re-reading your journals after you’ve written them can offer perspective.
GET UP THERE AND SING...OR WRITE!
I’d love to be a musician who can sing at the top of my lungs or from the depth of my soul with such beauty and abandon that the audience responds with jaleos, hallelujahs or untamable cheers. Who wouldn’t want to be a songwriter capable of crafting lyrics and notes so compelling that, upon hearing them played, everyone in the room simultaneously finds themselves bursting at the seams?
