Life as a Hermit – Day 8

It was nice to be among people for awhile yesterday. I am not the only one who lives “Out” as they like to call us, those who come in periodically and stock up on supplies, to disappear again for days or weeks at a time.  I appreciate that I am not technically a hermit, butContinue reading “Life as a Hermit – Day 8”

Life as a Hermit – Day 7

I miss Chet. Even a staring, expressionless punching bag is better than being utterly alone. Well, maybe not. At least I have my dog. I spent the morning cutting and sanding one of the larch stumps that came out of the cabin footprint when I built it. It sat outside over the winter but has driedContinue reading “Life as a Hermit – Day 7”

Life as a Hermit – Day 5

Today is quiet. Too quiet. I wonder if I should head into town today. It is sunny but cool as spring days can be. I could check on the bees or work on the henhouse but I feel more like going to sit at a coffee shop and letting the idle chatter of other humansContinue reading “Life as a Hermit – Day 5”

A grocery list to sum up an inspired, serendipitous, unexpected year

I can’t believe I haven’t posted anything since October. I have been back in school taking Creative Writing at the University of Montana. It has been inspiring, fun, invigorating, and, occasionally, still terrifying. I have met new friends, who already feel like old friends. I have discovered and been buoyed by the support of existingContinue reading “A grocery list to sum up an inspired, serendipitous, unexpected year”

Recent randomness I could not make up if I tried

  Just a brief summary of my week: Go on Tinder – meet a real human being. Weird. Go to Missoula with kids – look at a rental house that I can`t walk all the way into because of the bad energy I feel and go running out.  I am now convinced that a. reincarnationContinue reading “Recent randomness I could not make up if I tried”

Transformations

I have lived my entire life in Canada. Since I can remember, I have known that the climate is not for me. But life offers sometimes inexplicable paths, and today I am prepared to believe that it is nothing more nefarious than that. The path has led me here, after all. I have struggled. IContinue reading “Transformations”

The Universe is Yelling at me

Sometimes this is a good thing.  We as humans have been taught to ignore our instincts, to devalue them, to look down our noses at people who do follow their instincts. And I honestly don`t know what force is at work. But I do know that I now stop and listen when the universe yells. BecauseContinue reading “The Universe is Yelling at me”

Inner Good Girl, GET THEE BEHIND ME!

Each time I think that I can’t handle any more instability, every time I think I have thrown off the last shackle of convention, I see myself in the mirror, and I say: REALLY? I have that much further to go? Today (again), I was ready to give up. I’m broke. I mean really broke. BorrowingContinue reading “Inner Good Girl, GET THEE BEHIND ME!”
