Remember this photo post? I think I did it in the new year last year. If anyone would like to join in a photo post showing us a little bit of your world — just let me know in the comments and I’ll post a link in an update (I’ve never figured out the linky thing).
I have a few posts brewing: one about the new year and balance — and writing. I have to let something loosen; I spend a lot of time feeling like I am not mothering well enough, not keeping a “good” house, not connecting enough with friends or my spouse, not, essentially living the life I want to inhabit — so I’m trying to give some serious thought to what I am capable of changing.
My husband has pleaded with me not to write the next post in the queue — which should be entitled “Why Did No One Mention My Daughter’s Dream School was Esoteric Spritual Mid-Wifery” or something to the effect — there’s a whole host of reasons, long and complicated, why I haven’t written about it earlier — it’s going to take a bit more time because there is a very vocal community online that counters any criticism one might have for Waldorf education and before I throw myself into the fray I want to really build a strong post. While you wait for that one I’d ask you to ask yourself what your own impressions are of Steiner/Waldorf (if any at all). Hold on to your comments for the post though — I sense it might cause a dust-up — not with regulars on this blog but with proponents of it. I’m heartbroken really — and I needed some time to sit with the information that I learned and how I felt about what was and wasn’t transmitted to me as a prospective/involved parent (we were there for a for a year and a half.)
I’ve planned on writing about running, about the fascinating topic of why I’m going GF … I guess if I write enough about what I plan to write that I might actually write a post — even though in order to do it Z is staring at the children’s channel while pouring cheerios onto the seat of the stationary bike.
Anyway… What It’s Like Here 2013

Rex — I met Rex through Eden — and we’ve caught glimpses of one another’s world through both our blogs and Instagram — and, if I ever get my act together, she’s promised to be my pen-pal –the old-fashioned way. I see in her world and life so much I recognize — wholly different, but somehow entirely familliar … it is indeed a miraculous world sometimes… and there is the miracle of connection… if you are paying attention. You have to read her blog — and visit her world at A Sculptured Life
