Charlie's Bird

living the dream with Charlie and Thandi and chirping all the way back to the nest.


… the rhythms of life. For a long long time, my sea has been stormy, and trying to get a rhythm going has been difficult. I don’t want to jinx things, but it is feeling less stormy (despite broken bones). I’m not sure if it’s because work goes through a traditional slowing down now (medical aids are kaput, no one has money to care for themselves) or because I am just in a better place. 

I’ve had a good 10 days of running, balancing my work and the things that fill my tank – reading, painting, sewing. We’ve also almost gone into hibernation, we’ve been socializing far less, just being ourselves at home. 

It feels good.

Sometimes you just need to withdraw from the hub-bub of everyday life and not try to pack so many things into each day (hibernating).
Off the subject Did you know bears don’t pee when they hibernate? Amazing, thanks Grade 2, haha. Wish I didn’t have to pee after going to sleep

Glad your world is making sense again… Sometimes you need to press re-set (whatever that looks like to you). For me, it’s trying to return to my writing albeit for only just one day a week… but Oh the difference!
