just a little longer.

The saturn return is spinning me dizzy! Persistence, is everything. It’s taken(ing) nearly all the zen I have, but I’m nearly there. I WILL go to Alchemy this year, I’ve decided. To celebrate my saturn return’s end. I wish my other August 30th Virgo man could join me, and that Tasha and all the many other people who have helped me through these last 5 years to dance around that fire….

Starting next round of ebays tomorrow, kids/family blog and updating the business blog. going to link everything, do some serious reading, get that painting *finally* finished and make myself sit down for atleast an hour and write, something, anything. Perhaps tomorrow will be early morning meditation and dog run. I WILL organize these blog thoughts and invoke some rhyme and reason. g’nightImage

skipping writing (briefly)

16 07 2012

this week, so far has been about research and discovery. Began my dancing lessons for teacher training today, and wow. Pole dancers should be Olympic athletes. Intense! I’m going to give it another go, but so far am fearing that it will require too much of my energy as madre de cuatro hijos, partner and entrepreneur/inventor/creator/artist. Will force myself to sit down and do a noon quick writing tomorrow, not sure how much I’m liking the plinky idea anymore, went for inspiration today and found 90% of the content sounds like it was written with the intention of creating a facebook quiz by teenagers. I think I will start a random wikipedia article or thesaurus word for inspiration for the noon quick writing exercises. At any rate, painting in the works, and about to get out the costume kit and work on the fascinators and at least one belly dance bra. Randomly asked by the owner of a shop in town to create some jewelry for her shop, going to get started on that and figure out some pricing. In general I need to focus on getting more organized at the moment, and creating a schedule to help balance the time as mama with time to get work done. I think I will be moving my office into the sun room (which is currently being used as the kid’s play area) and restructuring their play/art space so that I can get work done while they are having free play and art time. Sylvia has been creating loads of manga drawings lately, and Madelyn has been writing a lot of fables. Both girls have checked out a graphic novel with every novel each week at the library this summer, and they are beginning to show a real interest in writing and illustrating. I’ve decided to create them both monitored and parent filtered blogs for their writing and drawing, so that family and friends can keep us, as well as their very own email addresses (which will also be monitored and parent filtered). I’m rambling at this point, perhaps over compensation for my recent lack of blogging, so I will sign off. Time to go get some laundry, dinner and boy’s hair cuts done!

optional title

Today was filled with green smoothies, rain soaked in sunshine, aquamarine playdough and some further research in chinese medicine and macrobiotics. Since I slowly started eating more raw, vegan and macrobiotic and have nearly eliminated all caffeine, sugar and tobacco, I have felt a calm awareness that I forgot existed. I’m taking each day in strides with the growing heaps of projects, and with everyday that I am loving my body and mind deeper, I am less intimidated by all that lies ahead. Projects galore! I have just been offered a position as an apprentice dance instructor at an aerial and pole art studio. This will include intensive training over the next few weeks to begin teaching two one hour classes a day monday through friday within the next four to six weeks. I will also be constructing a fusion class combining what I am learning with what I already know. I get access to the studio for choreography, which I have been longing and lusting for immensely for quite some time now! There are some guerrilla playground children’s theater projects in the works, more on that later, though I will say: revamping and presentation of the ten principles in a suitable manner, cross culturally, through performances for children. Clown Cleanup Crew (C cubed) will follow each performance with a MOOP sweep of the playground area. But I digress, instead of listing all my projects I will just say that I am very proud of myself for not losing the patience or faith in the process, and for doing what I need for myself to keep on track and not feel intimidated. This is an interesting new chapter, and I am enjoying every moment. And now, kiddies, it’s that time again for the nearly five o’clock kid time and dinner prep, so I will end this with:
