Writing, sock design, and wanting to paint

Remembered today that I was supposed to have begun again, if only temporarily, a daily seated meditation since the last new moon. That was last Saturday and I haven’t sat once. Oops. Next one is February 4th. I’ll try again. That’s been my repeating theme in life since I moved. I’m in a slightly better mood about it today than I’ve been lately, especially last Monday. I … Continue reading Writing, sock design, and wanting to paint

Yet another job option emailed me back for an interview I can’t make

Not reading my cover letter that clearly states I’m in Portland, at the moment. As I’ve known for years, my location is the problem. The most likely place I’ll find the regular, employment is back in sock design, and that is almost entirely in or around New York. Also no companies pay relocation unless you’re a corporate manager in the 130-150K range. I tell them … Continue reading Yet another job option emailed me back for an interview I can’t make

Funny that the people interested in saving me are those I haven’t seen in 30+ years

One of them is a liberal intellectual, more like myself. The other’s a cocaine dealer. The former wanted to marry me in first grade, and is now a VP at a Massachusetts based startup.  It’s a bit hypothetical at the moment, but he’s got enough clout to possibly secure a “support based” gig for me at his company. I’d be making less than half what … Continue reading Funny that the people interested in saving me are those I haven’t seen in 30+ years

Feeling a bit better now

I just needed to 1) self isolate and 2) vent. It’ll be good to see my friend too, tomorrow, even if I’d been hoping to eat turkey. She’s unlike most of the locals in that she both plans and communicates clearly. She is also doing an all vegan holiday. My friend Maria, in Connecticut, already has her table set, and beautifully, a day ahead of … Continue reading Feeling a bit better now

List making #virgorising

My body clock has already been reset to wake between 5:30 and 5:45. Having two cats already used to getting breakfast just past 6am helps in this! I’ve been getting organised. Things accomplished before 10am on Saturday Unpacked art bag. Picked out a WO for the afternoon. Earmarked an inspirational / witchy YouTube clip, by one of my favourites, to watch later. Initial pass through … Continue reading List making #virgorising

Meditation, study, killing time

Headache has persisted through 40min sit, pranayama & LBRP, but I just ate something so took Advil immediately. Am about halfway through one of JM’s “casual conversation” videos. Parts of them come off “witchcraft bro”, but that’s 90-95% the guests. Anyway I find them motivating in some ways. Today I decided to sit for 40min, rather than just 22. I used to do that all … Continue reading Meditation, study, killing time
