We are lucky enough to open our eyes to this in the morning. In February, cold as it is... a privilege to witness morning, every morning in fact. With a view. Another unseen frosting of snow last night. But with the dawn, it was obvious the sun would be out today. And the snow would be sneaking away soon.
I caught it. That secret snow. In between. Retreating . On the old patio. A patchwork of old slate.
And I am content today, knowing that I caught the thought from yesterday in stitch. A little what- if- i- do that? While I can...
The truth is, life has changed. As it does. And I have some new things to tend to. And I am mending plans to fit. Because that is what we do. The nature of mending is to never really to be done. It is Just to keep Going, patching here and there, carefully renewing to maintain usefulness. Knowing there is a beauty in that. Accepting that as enough.
I want to keep teaching. Because I have a sense that it is a way for me to be useful. I have consolidated my future teaching plans into One Thing. The What If Series. This includes What If Diaries (6 months- interactive) , the What If Mini Series ( smaller focus-work on your own) and the What If blog. Spirit Cloth Diaries part 1, is coming to a close in a couple of weeks. Part 2 (which would normally continue from part 1) has become the What If Diaries #1. A slightly different format allowing for smaller multiple focus units. A patchwork of little questions and answers and how they might become something more. Because they do.
What If Diaries is a stand alone 6 month chunk of What-Iffing. You might work along with me, work on your own, subscribe any time, whatever. Recorded as I go with the option to participate in a forum ( not mandatory). #1 is scheduled to start in March and run through August.
The What If Mini Series - stand alone focused units available through the What If blog (sidebar) which will directly tie into my wanderings.
All my existing classes will remain available as work on your own. Access to class materials is Forever. I love saying that. If you are a newcomer, may I suggest 101 as an introduction? A little of everything including my philosophy.
Please note, that over the next 3 week I will be living at Mom's, leaving the Man behind to keep the fire going. I may have to adjust the start date for all of this a bit, depending on how it goes. I am aiming for March 1.
All of this will begin to grow into something cohesive with Spring, for sure. Like things do.
