August Musings

There's been alot of musing going on in my little head lately...

It's been a whole year this month since quite a big change of lifestyle happened in my world, breaking, amending, changing habits and outlooks that I had been used to for the last 10 years and leaving me quite outside a large community of people who I had shared many rites and rituals with.  It's not necessarily a bad thing, but it has been a strange and sometimes difficult year.

I feel a bit like I have strayed away from my personal path a little, or maybe alot, but I know it's not permanent, more of an exploration of what's right and wrong for me, losing connections, and finding new ones in my own way.  I guess this might be reflected within the pages of this blog now that it is nearly 2 years old.  In my first year here I spent alot of time writing about nature and green issues, and this year, as I have delved deeper and deeper into my own creativity, the blog has taken a turn in direction away from those types of issue.  It was intentional as I always wanted this to be a crafty blog, rather than a 'lifestyle' blog, but at the same time, I wanted the whole thing to reflect my outlook on life, the universe and everything. 

I am thinking of perhaps starting another blog later this year, to focus more on matters of the spirit, in order to share the wonder of teachings I have been given over the years.  

In the meantime, it's a good job that Emma and Rachel have created a new blog, That Little Bit Greener which gives members the opportunity to write every second Wednesday, about the green issues which affect their lives and which they can share with the wider community.  There are already lots of links on my blog in each sidebar, to ideas and opinions on green ways and light living, but it will be nice to have the opportunity  to focus on these again here, perhaps in a slightly less militant fashion than I did in the past!

In the meantime, it's been such a lovely weekend weatherwise, that we've been down on The Marmalade Patch again.  Check it out!

August...the end of summer and the doorway to autumn I find, and always a great time for reflection. As autumn arrives I've always felt it the real new year. Your past year sound challenging, but in a good way. Sometimes we must make serious changes to discover our greatest potential--be it in matter of life or spirit. But it sounds like you are slowly finding your way, and that is good. Be still and know, trust who you are and what you believe and have the courage to share it with other. Very exciting your idea for a new, spiritual blog! I enjoy all topics you share here. :o) (((HUGS))

I know just what you mean, there has been a lot of self realisation recently and I too have joined a little bit greener... I am not sure I will write another blog I think its good to stick to the same one and just diversify and change... but perhaps this leads to a muddled blog? I am not sure after all these things are going on inside me and I am one thing... so perhaps muddled is the norm! another one of lifes mysteries... ;D
