Who is this person and when did she start inhabiting my body?

I've been just taking it a bit easy spiritually, letting myself go with the flow, more and more enjoying this path I'm on.  I decided to gather up all my books about Ancient Greece and Rome so I could have them all in one place should I decide to pursue this path further.  I have about 25 books that I've found so far.  It makes me think this path has been waiting for me to take it.

I've been dealing with a lot of snow shoveling so I haven't done as much reading and crafting as I wish so I plan on fixing that starting tomorrow.  Which means I need to spend less time online again.  I just keep getting sucked into it, seductive little wench that the internet is. 

I'm finding that my spiritual practices are becoming more personal and private of late.  I'm not sure what to make of that, but it's a new facet of myself I didn't know existed.  I'm usually very open about religion and spirituality.  Maybe it's just part of the journey I need to focus on right now.  So if I'm silent from time to time, don't forsake me.  I'll be around.  I just might have times when I have nothing to say.  And not talking when I have nothing to say is another new facet of myself.  I've been known to blather on for pages about nothing.

I'm still feeling good on my path, feeling more focused and less stressed.  I like this new person inhabiting my body right now.  She isn't pressuring me to read the end of the story, just letting me enjoy the tale.

Off to eat a late supper and take these aching bones and joints to bed.  I fiercely battled large and monstrous piles of snow today.  I think the snow won.


  1. I totally relate to where you're at right now. Silence. Yep. Yep.

  2. When my Spirituality became more quiet, I felt as though I had more room for growth. Less time talking more time listening. Why did I just sound like the dude from Karate Kid? ; )

  3. Thanks, Tana. I knew you could relate. We're such odd friends who can stay that way even during the silences. Hugs.

    Dark Mother, I love it. Wax on. Wax off. But I get what you're saying. It's exactly how I feel right now. I don't even talk to Zach much about it anymore. I'm content to just absorb it rather than my previous need to sort it all out. In fact, I don't even feel the need to figure out why I'm feeling this way. I'm just going to go with it. But it's good to know that it's a good thing and that others go through it, too.

    Thanks, both of you!
