There is always seed saving. For another day.
Here, Japanese Indigo.
I am using the wire basket from an air fryer somebody gave to me that never worked and I don't really need such a thing anyway. It's been a long growing season here and the indigo keeps making flowers, still a few stragglers. The basket is sitting on a dish towel on the big round table. I lay all the stalks here now, there are so many, give it a shake now and then. pick up the seeds one by one with a tweezer. Toss the crumbs out the window.
A slowing down before bedtime. Sometimes I sing.
One by one, just like stitches, or steps, you eventually get somewhere.
I will miss blogging here in a way, no glossary words, no categories or ways to organize. But hey, let's see how it works out. With the new platform, posts will come in full to your inbox. Maybe that is better in some ways for those who read.
I will put this site in maintenance mode, probably tomorrow, for a few days. Just to do what I need to do. And when it reopens it will basically be the Home for the Forever Zone, that is private teaching pages. Free Classes are not available at this time because of the TypePad issues. Free Enough Classes are no longer available for purchase. I suppose, in a way, my idea for Feel Free has transformed somewhat and it is more like Free Enough. But I feel the Free is still there in so many ways. If all goes well, I will be able to to put everything teaching related here in some organized way. And I will send out Forever Zone Newsletter by private mail, explaining any changes. Fingers Crossed.
Thank you all who have resubscribed over here. You can remain signed up here if you like, just in case, ha! I have some formatting to figure out over in the new blog place, so I will take a day or two to do that before continuing. So hey ho, let's just go.
Thank you to those who have chosen to remain Travelling Companions. Each time a change is made I lose a few stray folks, but the heart of the going seems to remain, a bit like seed saving really.
I hope it all works out–I really enjoy the contact–especially a sane one in this crazy world–or wurled ( as my friend India Flint says)
May THE FORCE be with you–and all of us. janet Wright
or we will just gently go.
Onward! Thank you for finding new ways when the old have too many flaws and can’t be mended any longer. Looking forward to further threads.
change is a kind of mending I guess…
It’s about the only kind of traveling I can do anymore. Happy to come along.
it’s nice how we can whirl around so easily, something positive about the technology…
That simple jar of seeds is so beautiful, so full of hope and promise.
aren’t they just wonderful?
Sure! I will follow! Kind wishes,
I love traveling with you — anywhere! 🙂
So glad to be a traveling rag mate. Thank you for every lovely thought, lovely photos and all the possible dreams!
I will follow. Onward!
here we go, it’s become like hide and seek, ha!
your blog and everything it holds has been a real life saver for me, so of course I have subscribed to your new blog, a new place to meet, love
big love back.
There is so much to miss these days. Wishing you ease in the transition. 💙
Not going to stay with missing, going to enjoy the journey instead.
I’ll miss the glossary words, and travelling along the journeys they take me on.
Way too wet here for days and days for any more seed gathering.
Have just come home from visiting a disused, (but still cared for), church, where I can sing at full volume with no one to hear me…the acoustics are so kind!
Love to you ❤️
well the glossary will still kick in in the Zone…
I love how sound flies in those big spaces.
I got my wandering shoes on.
I’ll travel along to be wherever you are planting and putting down roots. Growth: love that word and all that it means!
we learn every time.
magical seeds. how they lie dormant for a time. then go underground, become invisible ‘n re-emerge in a wonder-full new form. small steps. slow living. hey, ho, on we go!…
seeds are amazing
“Travlin’ along, singin’ a song, side-by-side…”
I’ve thought about switching to Substack too, but I’ve been on WordPress so long. I’ll be interested in hearing how you like it. I follow several people there.
Let you know… all new to me to me at this point
Let’s rest in the way things are. Arms around you — and see you in the new blog format.
Thanks so much for your persistence with technology challenge fixes. I got subscribed on the new platform and hope it works out for you easily.
I want to keep leaf-bird-selves crossing currents. The consistent nudge of my hyper-aware mother is gone now, and my daughter’s bloom into cronehood is unfolding. My journey within the currents alternates between formlessly absorbing them, and then capturing threads that unconsciously echo them. Thank you for your awareness and your seeds.
I love your words here.
What a beautiful way to describe your journey!
It’s what gives me hope…
so small, so big
The simplicty of this practice, a good balance for all of the rest, eh? xo
Let’s sew seeds if every kind(ness) everywhere!
I need to reacquaint myself w the private classes, I did one but never made it to the other two ( the outdoor season called to me instead)
The light is low, the days shorter, time to get back to the Teachings!
And I need to collect all my indigo seeds too!
Hey Jude, I’m sorry that things have become so complicated but grateful as always for everything you do, including the work behind the screen. I don’t seem to receive emails about the Forever Zone, but would very much like to stay on that mailing list please. All change opens new doors I find.
yeah, I need to keep reminding myself in my older age.
Good for you, going gently with the flow of change, since go with the flow we must. No point in screaming and kicking up a fuss! Thank you for persisting; best wishes with this new bend in the river.
“new bend in the river”…I will remember that. Thank you.
really, bitching gets us nowhere.
onward and upward !! xoxo
i feel like a leafbird
Best wishes in this new planting. I’ll be watching to see what comes up. Thank you. Upwards and Onward is always good
Yes, there are always seeds. I’ll see you in the new territory, Jude! 😉
seeds are great reminders
