At “That got me thinking…” I post thoughts on areas where life is currently very focused.
Parenting: As my children are now (nearly) both in Middle School, the issues have changed, but the fundamental questions of how to interact with them remain. It’s a wonderful and terrifying phase, and we are all adjusting to new levels of freedom and independence.
Pedagogy: I am on an educational journey with my children. We have homeschooled, been at Plumfield Academy and are on a journey with the public school system.
Prayers: As a committed Christian and Anglican, my spiritual life revolves around using the Book of Common Prayer and practicing ancient disciplines of prayer, meditation, silence. I’m also currently in the process of doing the Exercises of St. Ignatius, which is a very intense and exciting journey.
Produce (or phood): My interest in slow food, whole food, gardening, environmental impact and all the rest has grown in recent years. Making responsible, healthy, sustainable fools choices has become a priority for me.
Poetry: Rediscovering my love of poetry has awakened some piece of me that I thought might have been left behind in high school. Imagine my surprise to discover the poet within has not given up the ghost, but has been beautifully hidden and growing; only now am I realizing that it’s the long planted and forgotten seeds emerging. Who knows what lovely shape they will take?
Photography: I’ve recently discovered that I enjoy taking photos, and that not only is the process fulfilling, but the outcomes are sometimes quite good. I’m enjoying having a place to share some of what I capture. Recently, I’ve been taking photos with a macro lens and posting those. Seems that I take lots of shots of flowers and of food! I’ve also ventured out with my husband, who is a truly amazing photographer, to start a business on the side.
