“It’s those difficult times that inform the next wonderful time, and it’s a series of trade-offs, of events, of wins and losses.” ~ Brad Pitt
“Difficult times disrupt your conventional ways of thinking and push you to forge better habits of thought, performance and being.” ~ Robin S. Sharma
I could use some peace right about now. How about you?
We’ve had some issues revamping my site, as you can see. My husband is helping me but he’s got to do some research before we can fix all the glitches. And, of course, life gets in the way. I hope we’ll have all the issues worked out by the end of August. We’ll see.
I’ve enjoyed my Story~Power chats and am looking forward to the next round which will be posted in the new year. I hope you are getting the notifications and enjoying the two which have aired so far. I’ve had many amazing conversations with my guests.
At the moment, I’m getting ready for a new semester of teaching at the college. It was touch and go as to whether I’d be teaching at all, but it looks like my very small classes will be offered. I’ll be teaching both classes using Zoom. Dave and I did teach acting that way at the end of last semester, but to do it for an entire semester is going to be really interesting. The other class dramatic structure won’t be affected that much.
But back to my opening statement, I don’t know about you, but I’ve been very emotional lately with everything that’s going on and then there was the explosion in Lebanon. That sent me into a tizzy. I’ve cranked up my spiritual practice of meditation, sending Reiki, journaling and the like just to maintain some balance. It takes me longer every day to finish this important work. At first I was feeling quite anxious about it, but then I remembered that if I’m going to make it through this time of upheaval, I must go within. That’s just as, if not more important, than any of my other creative work.
I hope you are all are keeping safe and sane. In my daily meditations, I send out love and light to all of you, and everyone on the planet. We must support each other in order to make it through these extremely difficult times. Here’s hoping we catch a break soon.
I hope to have a longer post next week.
Love and blessings to you all.
