reading :: on my stack these days... Divergent for fun, Amor and Psyche for learning, Open for both ;) and always oodles of magazines including Bust, Real Simple, and Whole Living.
writing :: daily gratitude in my journal, working on three blog posts simultaneously (not including this one), a final submission to Mabel Magazine, and juicy email correspondence with old friends and new acquaintances.
making :: a giant painting on a piece of raw plywood, art journal pages filled with colors and words, lots of new vegetarian recipes since my husband stopped eating meat, new alchemy cards to add to my deck, an "open marriage" Pinterest board for resources and anecdotes (cuz there's not much out there).
watching :: season 1 of Girls (genius and hilarious!), food network shows - Heartland Table and Pioneer Woman current faves, the morning light shift deep in to the east, so many birds coming to feed in our backyard feeders... starlings, mockingbirds, cardinals, chickadees and others who's names I don't know.
learning :: about mythology and the feminine psyche, to prioritize my own self care, about the place between friendship and romance and the landscape of modern dating in general.
planning :: an exciting collaboration with one of my most favorite word crushes, a juicy weekend with Sabrina Ward Harrison in June, for an un-fun but necessary surgery the end of April, and for the new rhythm of soccer and T-ball and sunshine (<----- oh, please please) soon to be.
gathering :: little treats to fill Easter baskets, stories and snippets for future work, seeds for spring planting, giftie ideas for all the spring celebrations, and more inspiration for StudioFemme.
