At “That got me thinking…” I post thoughts on areas where life is currently very focused.
Parenting: As my children are now in middle school and high 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.
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.
Pedagogy: I am on an educational journey with my children. We have homeschooled, been at Plumfield Academy and are on a very positive 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 a trained Spiritual Director.
Produce (or phood): My interest in slow food, whole food, gardening, environmental impact and all the rest has ebbed and flowed in recent years. I strive for better (not perfect) and am inspired to photograph food in my kitchen.
Photography: I enjoy taking photos; 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. I’ve also ventured out with my husband to start a business on the side. Learn more about Drum Drum Photo, and certainly be in touch if you’d like to book a session!
