Good morning friends! Yesterday never cleared, wind only slowly sheperding more & more rainsoaked clouds overhead—there was barely a break in the rain all day, & a few half-hearted growls of far off thunder. Today is still ambiguous, light diffuse through tall white clouds.
Feeling the heaviness of a pain hangover still from the damp, & a sluggish feeling of having to haul my limbs into action–have to learn over & over, patience is key.
May we have confidence in ourselves & our purpose today!
Good morning friends! A fair evening of slowly drifting clouds yesterday flows into another overcast morning today. Atmosphere feels dense, & my bones hurt from it, but not as overwhelmingly stuffy as a few days back. Already I think I feel a whispery breeze picking up.
Lethargy is less pronounced & feeling less gloomy—aiming to stay in this space, not caught up in self-interest or self-pity, where I can let my health be as it is w/o gnawing at it.
May we be thoughtful & ready to listen today!

Good morning friends! All day yesterday heat was like a hand pressing down, squeezing, omnipresent. A pressure-cooker feeling slowly built over the afternoon as clouds began to gather, & we sought a little relief by a nearby stream in the evening. After dark a gentle rain eased the heavy atmosphere.
Felt impossible to do much in that lvl of unaccustomed heat—this morning is overcast & cool again though so hopeful to dive back into my sketchbook & project.
May we find time to rest & heal today!
Good morning friends! Clouds kept breaking up, humid greenhouse feeling replaced in the afternoon by blazing bright blue heat—meadows all full of insect hum & regal late summer purple & gold. Bending my head I could smell the luscious perfume of sweating greenery.
Looks like a promising start for another bright breezy day. Probably a day to take slow & enjoy gently, b/c yesterday I pushed myself to walk my longest route.
May we be unafraid of failure & recognise the growth it represents today!
Good morning friends! Still long moments of caressing brightness rippling across the grass beneath a torn grey patchwork sky. Crickets & bees still thrumming in the grass, & a sweet lively wind keeping the clouds from closing up.
Humidity reasserting itself lead to a return of the swollen feeling in my joints & to restless sleep. I still managed to walk out a decent way yesterday, but it drained my energy far more thoroughly than it felt like in the moment.
May we find strength & agency today!
Good morning friends! Woke to a susurrus of fine cold rain. Though I'm feeling pretty sore it's a real relief from the squeezing humid weight of clouds hanging still & bloated overhead—& we had a better night's sleep w/the cooler air.
Now the pain & thickness is settling into my joints, so I'll eat & take some painkillers. I'll either get some breathing room to work later or it'll be another recuperation day.
May we we be kind to ourselves & recognise our worth outside of achievement today!
Good morning friends! Sporadic rain yesterday & last night—didn't drain the clouds away completely, but left them paler & patchy, less foreboding for now. Faint bluish cast to the morning light, sharpening the greens of the leaves & leaving everything else oddly muted.
Overnight rain has left me w/a slow & painful start, so the recuperation period is stretching out again—fallow seasons are just another part of the cycle.
May we be generous w/each other today, offering support wherever we can!
Good morning friends! Sky clearing out & closing up over & over has made it a sore, tiring few days. I've been staying close to home still, I really want to build up some level of energy reserve again–it's miserable feeling like every productive day leads to a week of recovery.
Not going out affords more time to inspect the many tiny wonders of the garden, the micro-scale sculptural wonderland of leaves & curious seedpods.
May we recognise our strengths & work to realise our potential today!
Weird Facebook filter stuff, parent
I use a filter system on Facebook, most people are 'acquaintances' & personal posts I put as 'friends except acquaintances'. I don't know why I did it this way but I did. My mum is an 'acquaintance'. Recently though when I go to set other custom filters on posts I can't find her when I search her name, so I can't exclude her from posts. It's v strange. We're still Facebook friends. I've had to just put her on 'restricted' instead. This worries me, a glitch?!
Good morning friends! Clouds simmering away again at last & the heat is a big relief. I'd thought the buddleia looming over our fence was flowering, but evidently that was just a prelude—now in full bloom & w/warmth distilling the perfume its sweet scent is a powerful, almost physical presence filling the garden like a bowl.
Heavy lethargy slowly lifting—aiming to be patient still, let recovery take its time.
May we recognise our own value today, & nurture ties w/those who treat us w/respect!
Good morning friends! Only scattered sparks of brightness recently. Low pressure system moping about stubbornly again this morning, making a vague damp whitish blur of the sun.
Stayed in yesterday, feeling like another moment to reevaluate what my body can take rather than following a furrow of routine. To come to a point where I actively miss walking even a small distance is a useful point of clarity by itself for how much progress I've made.
May we find & build supportive communities today!
