like a fairytale, epic, funny and sad, and then happy.
Once upon a time.
from my talk on sewing organization, aka manage your mess
E for Ergonomics, which is all about you.
So your space is for you. My space is for me. My home studio is not open to public, in fact my public mailing address is a UPS store. So this is a whole new world--but I still have a real physical place.
Best way to keep your space clean, don't use it much and hire an assistant to help you clean up before you have play date with an LA based designer.
I love this silly phrase. Joints meant bars or hang out places, a term not used much today. Joints are part of the body that help us move. I've played sports, and gotten hurt, and healed. The best advice came from my father in law--works for knees, ankles, elbows, hips.
We are all busy, running around doing good for the world and sometimes we forget that answers can be simple. Applying those simple solutions is the hard part.
I know it's not fun to be on the DL. But before you are allowed to whine on the disabled list (and yes, there is no whining allowed anyway), you best be doing the simple stuff, and getting some support.
Channelling my inner Yoda--take care of your crude matter. I know that we are luminous beings, but these vehicles we travel around in, they aren't so sturdy.
Not my will, but your will does not mean that we don't protect our body's from ankle sprains, or evil.

With the same care and respect as when I shared them with my mother-in-law, I share them with you. Speak Softly and Carry a Lot of Love; the volume (value) of a message is not measured in decibels.

Do you ever find yourself giving advice and realize that the words that you just have said words that are the very ones you yourself need to hear? Today found myself saying "we don't need to understand, we need to trust God, don't worry or be nervous, do your part and trust God, He's in charge".
Also without having heard the sad news of the day, I said the following to my mother-in-law we need "good news" reports, then I broke into my very best serious news anchor way "Today 4 tall men visited their mom who they love very much, and breaking news, her daughter-in-law loves to hug her and do silly newscasts"
Be the good in the world and sometimes it means be the "goof"!
love and peace to you all!
Humbly, I say thanks to Facebook for that On this Day memory and the conversation that followed:

Thanks for being you

Yup. The good outweighs the bad; the bad is just louder sometimes.

Cyndi Zacheis Souder--yes indeed! As I write my Recipes for Teaching, I would love to quote your "The good outweighs the bad; the bad is just louder sometimes." in my chapter of Speak Softly and Carry a Lot of Love; the volume (value) of a message is not measured in decibels. May I have your permission to use that quote?
Cyndi Zacheis Souder replied:
Absolutely. Thanks for asking.
Praying for all those affected by the Boston Marathon bombing of 2013.
