Thanks to Val Utgaren for the photos. As I said in my post yesterday, I didn’t dare take my camera out – I think you can plainly see why. But there we are – all colourful and snow-covered at the top of Mount Beattie.
Today I’ve been waiting to see about the storm that is supposed to develop, which will determine whether I go skiing tomorrow. I am currently thinking not.
It has been a productive day. I’ve done the cleaning, and laundry and am baking sourdough – shopping, dog walking – all that stuff. I am also in the process of developing a new WordPress site dedicated to only one thing: my short stories.
As I said – still in progress. That’s where technology comes in: its never as simple as it purports to be and it always takes more time than you think it will. It’s just the way it is. The only way to overcome it is to develop a Zen-like attitude.
We have a house showing next week.
Ok – tackling the other subject in my headline here: blogging. I’ve been thinking about this a good deal today. I strive to be open, honest and vulnerable in my blog. But I am often not – especially of late. I find that if I am less than happy, I only report on the silver linings – oh sure, I whine a lot – but not early as much as what is going on inside.
This carries on into my life where I don’t want to talk about anything negative (perceived negative) that is going on inside me. Instead, I go inward and look at my feelings and thoughts form every angle I can. I look for ways to counteract negativity – a word I despise by the way. I think I’d prefer to use something like downness? sadness? not-upness?
At any rate, I’ve been deep inside for a while now. I know that it isolates me but I consider that a better option than throwing out stuff that is less than rainbows and puppy dogs. Maybe I’m wrong but at the moment, that’s how I feel.
I have great confidence in my abilities to get through my internal process.
