A Month of Lists: June 5

Ways I Treat Myself

Occasional handmade chocolates 

Browsing antique stores
(my favorite collection is my stash 
of lace-edged white handkerchiefs)

Walking along the edge of the ocean --
that liminal space where you get giddy
from all the ions in the air --
and listening to the crash of the waves.

Creating and eating beautiful,healthy food.

Buying and arranging fresh flowers.
I especially love lilacs, sweet peas, sunflowers,
and peonies.

Shopping at my favorite garden nurseries.

Making sure my space is aesthetically pleasing.

Taking time to delight in the world around me.

Things that intrigue me

Doors. So symbolic!

The artistic process

History (and herstory).

Why people built houses and farmed
on breath-takingly steep slopes.

Wondering who lived here and why they left.

What cats think when they're just sitting there, chillin'

The wisdom of the ancients.

A Month of Lists: June 3

Things you might not know about me.

I'm always thinking, scanning my body, listening to my emotions
in order to figure out if I'm centered and taking right action.

The breakup of my marriage was the most traumatic,
painful experience of my life

I use my lawyer skills virtually every day,
but I don't practice any longer.

 I've been known to iron sheets, pillowcases, and tea towels
when I'm bored.

Every morning, I fix myself a cup of chai and pick a mug
with a message that I want to guide my day.

I rarely drink, but when I do,
make mine a Margarita.

I love the order and abundance
in grocery stores.

I'm pretty adept at family history research
(those lawyer skills come in handy, as does the experience
I got deciphering weird handwriting when I taught fourth grade).
