Day 25- June 8- writing identity

A weekend day. Light work. Hot as an oven. Hubby planned to go out to the shops in the morning but came back with wings on his feet. I am laughing to think of hubby as an angel- an angel with feet wings.

Lunch was leftovers heated up. Breakfast was the usual fare- rice and lentil pancakes with lentil curry. Seem to have a severe protein deficiency. So consuming hemp powder by the spoonful.

Going out now when the call for prayer goes out- this is a good time to be out- the traffic is in control and the roads are relatively empty. The days get longer and longer. No emails from college so far- no news is probably good news.

Hubby is worried about getting a job in the home country. Sometimes opportunities come and we don’t see them as opportunities but as obstacles when in fact they are disguised opportunities. The human mind is so idiotic – sometimes it takes decisions like letting sleeping dogs lie, liking the status quo when a good shake up of the status quo is just what we need. The status quo is good for the present but not good in the long term. Change is the order of the universe.

Write, write, write says Natalie Goldberg, the author who I am reading now. Write bookfuls of junk out of which junk will come up a lotus plant, tall and beautiful- that spreads its fragrance about it. Writing keeps us honest and honesty needs to come out of good writing. Often I write and then I edit because I think of how the writing might impact someone who reads it. What I have edited out is what I truly am.

The pursuit of who I truly am is my connection to the creator, God and my deeper self. Writing gives me the path to identify who I am, without any pretences. I hope to reach that inner space of honesty, the true me.

      1. Never blame yourself Susie …. there is a lot of craziness going on in this world. I had a very disgruntled day here. I made plans to walk in a 5K … it rained, it poured – I was angry at myself for signing up for it – almost $40.00 down the drain and I am a frugal person, so I could have registered today, but it was more. Rained and we have had nothing but rain. Then it stormed and poured – had housework to do, didn’t feel like it, piddled around the house without coming online as it was storming. I think a totally unproductive day, and now it is late and will stay here later than I should. The outside world is too much sometimes – it moves too fast for me most of the time.

      2. I am so sorry for the weather. I wish some of that wet weather came here. I do spend an unproductive weekend too- almost always. And I always blame the weather- either it is too hot or too cold or just right. Whatever it is it is not good enough for me.
        Wish everything would slow down too. It seems like there is a giant clock somewhere and someone is winding it up too fast and letting it go out too fast.

      3. I think now Susie that about 1/3 of the days are nice weather days and the rest are something that causes me to be a malcontent about – you and I are cut from the same cloth in that respect.
