December - au revoir 2019
Incredibly we have not melted, though the daily sweating makes it feel like we are as we endure the oppressive heat and dryness. I upgraded the air-conditioning but try to take advantage of any breezes, letting light and air flow in rather than close everything up.
Not only a year, a whole decade has whizzed by! (though I'm told 2020 is actually the last year of the decade, I'm going to start at zero). It has been full of surprises, travel and adventure, unexpected changes, emotional challenges, work and play, routines, learning, rituals, understanding, creativity, goals and achievements.
Most of my mingling was at work as well as book club, embassy arts, creative workshops, travel and visits. I seem to spend most of my home time alone especially now A&A have moved.
exhausting roller coaster, unexpected situations and outcomes, uncertainty, hesitation, upset, hurt, release, freedom, awe, elation, the whole mix!
I have been exploring where my curiosity leads me, delving into and enjoying renewing old esoteric interests in tarot, astrology, numerology and meditation. Asking questions and feeling fascinated by the connectedness of everything.
How would I cope without it? A focus on bookbinding, I love the process as much as the finished result. My daily weekly monthly goals and journaling/blogging continued slowly and steadily, with a definite energy shift, which is more of a self discipline issue and despite regularity, I've not been well placed emotionally this year - much worry and distraction and feeling like I let myself get caught up in these spaces.
Overall, reading, bookbinding, monthly adventures and RAK have flowed fairly consistently. Poetry, sewing, letter writing and my unfinished pile barely have a don't in them! Clean outs and improved routines needed, goal setting and list making good, motivation fluctuating, inspiration overloaded, action and energy needed.
Health, safety, comfort, work, support - family and friends, creativity, opportunity, possibilities, travel, freedom. Feeling blessed.

For me, it seems there is not much difference between wondering and wandering. It has always helped me find inspiration. Creative dabbling is good for the soul, I couldn't imagine life without it and often surprise myself by what I come up with.
