21 more things = 42

The last post was the 21 things I KNOW at 42. At the end I said I'd consider writing 21 more things to make it 42 in total & then ...

Tuesday

Guess Who's Bi-zack!!

I come through here from time to time in search of pieces of myself that I've left in this space. I never expect to find you here because the posts aren't new & the activity level on my part has come to a crashing stop. There was the goal of relocating, but much like packing to move from 1 home to the next, the work diminishes the potential excitement of fresh starts. There were too many other things going on that demanded my attention that I never actually got around to boxing this space up & moving to new digs. Initially that felt like it was just time to let this go but I've come to learn & get reminded often that this is what I do to breathe. Ironically, it's the struggle for air that has brought me back here now, erroneously thinking that I couldn't actually take the necessary time to breathe, that it would somehow happen on its own without my involvement. I mistook this breath for the kind I take without thinking. The body is an amazing machine, but the mind requires something else.

When I started this--whatever year that was--I was all about practicing this skill & committed to a certain number of posts a week. I can't approach this the same way again. I make no promises. There are no guarantees. All I have is the need to hang out here when the air gets too thick & my thoughts won't slow down, or when something happening in the world is tugging at my hem & won't leave me alone. So, I'll return with the thing that people speak to me about the most: Shoe Personality of the Week. Sundays will still be the day & I look forward to hanging out with y'all again.

Thank you for participating in encouraging me to return to the thing I literally can not live without.

Watch me move.
