Home Sweet Hive, about my housebuilding/off-grid adventure, I've sorely neglected this one.
It's been interesting to have a blog that's so very different from this one, with different subject matter and a new variety of virtual community. But I've missed those of you who I used to connect with through The Whole Blooming World, and I've missed blogging about the kinds of things I've written about here. I'm about to move back to town for the winter and one of my jobs is about to end, so I'm planning to spend more time here over the next few months, and to make time once again to read my "old" friends' blogs.
I love the fact that picking a color/theme for the year came out of
blogging. This green year has reflected "greenness" in a variety of
ways. Reflecting on it lately, I've been thinking about the Green Tara,
and how she stands for "enlightened activity." This has definitely
been a year of activity, of outward movement and energy. It's been
great: challenging and rewarding in ways very new to me. Fulfilling.
But now I find myself thirsting for the inwardness of fall and
winter, taking the time to retreat and rest a bit and process all that has
happened, all that I've learned and done. I look forward to sharing some of that here.
