Oh lordy.  It's been ages.  
I'm ready to be back.
Ready to write.
But I'm giving myself some slack.  Taking it easy.  I know I won't bounce back in immediately.  There is much afoot.  Work, school, running the house, petting the cat, school.  School.  

I came across some of my old journals the other day - the NightOwl ones, the best for ideas and sketches and lectures and thoughts.  I think I just ordered my 7th or 8th one.  I love collecting quotes in my journals; here are some I collected in 2010 and one I just added (probably for the 2nd or 3rd time as it's a favorite.

"What is that Heart of Gold, anyway?
The love of your life?
Pure intent?
An awareness of life span and the ability
to make the most
of all possibilities."

"If I find in myself
desires which nothing 
in this world can 
satisfy, the only logical
explanation is that I 
was made for a 
different world."
-C.S. Lewis

"If you are not leaning into the crowd, then you must be destined to do other things." - Caru

"Allow your plants to co-mingle." - native plant lecture

"A thing is right when it tends to preserve the integrity, stability and beauty of the biotic community.  It is wrong when it tends otherwise." - Aldo Leopold


  1. Welcome back to writing!!!

    And also, I have to thank you for the huge gift you just gave to me. I started reading the first quote and stopped breathing and felt myself lifting with the weight of the words and then I realized, once I go to the bottom, that I WROTE IT. Good Lord! I didn't recognize my own words but they were just what I needed to read today. :)

    Also, that Clive Staples quote is one of my very favorites too.

    Be well, chickadee.


  2. Oh, I'm so glad! Serendipity :) Thanks for taking the time to say hello.

  3. I love the second quote:) Have a wonderfully cozy day, Emmy:) xoxo
