The Great One-Eighty

I am in the process of doing a reboot of my living space. I started in the bedroom and will circle outward. I know that I cannot keep life at a minimal state unless I do this. I can remind myself hourly of the rules governing minimal living, but unless I get in there and…

Welcome Back; Now Stay at Home…AGAIN

I have a fairly stationary life. I don’t go far from home and that is OK with me. I have said before here that the shelter-at-home months were a joy, not a hardship for me. But this weekend, I had to travel 5+ hours to another state for a funeral. Not a funeral of someone…

In Pursuit of the Perfect Planner

If you know me at all, you know that my minimalist tendencies run deep. It is hard to say, but I am about to act like anything but a minimalist, because I HAVE to find a planner that works. I have tried so many already, but I have made the decision to go planner wild…

The Re-entry

I feel as if an official re-entry is taking place. All things are going back to the way they were before the quarantine at an alarming rate. Too alarming, as we have already seen in the re-closure of some things. I was reading today about Myrtle Beach and the decision to return to a more…

Refocus

After a long time of posting, I am thinking it is time to do a little evaluation of all things here. It is too diverse and unfocused to gain anyone’s attention. I am not at all content here, as I once was. In the recent past I have spend too much time wondering about things;…

Things I Have Learned in a Month

Not a calendar month, mind you, but in a matter of 30 collective days. I was a lot less educated about a lot of things just 30 short days ago. And I am still working to categorize into some semblance of order much of my new knowledge. I am a little concerned that my sieve-like…

Worrisome Days

The end of May is the time of year that I plan my Summer Challenge. In years past that involved others joining in and eating raw for the months of June, July and August. This year I am not there. I am half way through the figuring out process for eating intuitively. And the one…

Wrestling in a Place

In my intentional meandering through the whole Bible, I am currently in Jeremiah. So much good stuff there in light of current life, not just as it applied to Jeremiah and his contemporaries. The people of God were backslidden. They had moved from devotion to being astray; far away from the God who led them…

Tech Troubles

In these crazy days of quarantine, it is funny to watch other crazy things occur. And crazy quarantine days keep the other crazy things from having as deep of an impact as they otherwise might have had. I have been seeing this happen over and over. Let’s take the weather for a very simple example….

Quarantine Day 5203

As I browse the posts on WordPress, I am struck by the great number which are claiming to be from people who are losing their ability to focus deeply. My guess is that the vast majority are dealing with that same issue. And many more. Like,  these: who is telling the truth and who is…
