Feel Free

Learning by Example

sing it ...lean on me....

There was a storm.  A small branch fell from an overhead tree to the deck below.  The young morning glory, previously supported by a wooden skewer was hanging down, knocked over by the heavy rain. I stuck the branch into the soil, for it to lean on, before going to bed.  In the morning, this.

it rests, in growth

I really like looking at Freedom over Grow.   And how it seems to have become some sort of personal  medicine wheel.

It seems as wet here as it is dry elsewhere.  This has me reconsidering balance without the normal selfishness that accompanies it.

You Tube, where all my class videos hang out,  just announced changes that will instantly make all my videos private.  WordPress made changes that conflict with my theme.  And TypePad, well...they just locked me out and we are working on that.  Is it really worth the time I have left, to deal with all this shit?  That is the question for today.

Anyway, Happy July.

    I love the connection that the plant has reached out to make with the twig…..holding on!
    The quilt is beautiful, perfectly balanced 👌💕
    The constant changes that all of these platforms are making are frustrating, I have a blog, I don’t blog anymore, I have fb but I dislike posting on it, I have flikr and don’t post on it anymore, I tried to begin a website to have everything in thd one place, I gave up! It stressed so much, demanded more time than I could devote and then I questioned it’s need??….now since I started really posting and connecting via Instagram it works for me, it’s enough, time is precious.

    I love your videos and being able to listen to you talk as you stitch. They are quite a body of work! It would be nice if you could keep them available.

    I am a BIG fan of simplifying. It feels good. It is also good to have options. I do not blog or have a website and I am new to Instagram. That said, Instagram seems to be pretty friendly and simple. You have my respect whatever you decide to do. I Will continue to look forward to hearing from you … whenever it feels right.

      It is simple. Easy. Mobile. But it is also a bit like a shopping mall. I am just here, there and a little too much everywhere. Now I am laughing and that’s good

  4. a farm blog i love….just stopped posting …. 6 months. appeared today…she’s gone to instagram.

    i guess a lot of people like that better

    Well…I feel that way about cleaning. That’s why a tiny house seems appealing to me, less to take care of. 🙂

  6. Well all I know is I would miss hearing from you ..so maybe it is worth it. I am 67 . I hate everything about computers, except when they bring me the beauty of your words, and the pictures of your work. Keep at it 🤗

    ….lean on me, when you’re not strong, and I’ll be your friend, I’ll help you carry on…
    Nature is always finds a way.
    Hopefully, you (we) can too…
    Technology–ugh! HA.

    I can’t get into WordPress anymore so never comment on several blogs. Mo is one of them.. I don’t have the google thing and hate typepad. I just have mostly given. up on commenting. Even this one is limiting me. Makes me a stalker.. I would miss you but I don’t blog because of the frustration. Don’t blame you

just share what moves through you...
