I miss writing about “important stuff” here on my personal site, so while I once viewed NaBloPoMo as a true challenge, and a total commitment to the discipline that writing requires, I am now undertaking a month of posting every single day right here on Reason Creek out of needing to write for the love of writing. Working on my site for Boomer and early Gen X women is fun but it is a structured task and an editorial and business venture, so… I sort of miss just writing. So this month I will be posting here for the love of it and I might even follow some of the prompts for the monthly writing challenge.
Today's prompt at BlogHer's NaBloPoMo is: The last time you said I love you. I thought about taking this prompt up, and talking about true LAST times I said I love you to someone. But that did not sound like fun, at all. Nor did it seem like it would provide any opportunity for spiritual growth. So I will just say, I learned that lesson long ago. The last time I said I love you to my husband was this morning. The last time I said I love you to my daughter and brothers was when I last spoke to them on the phone.
But the last time I articulated all the things I love, if one can actually love a thing, is a long time ago. So I think I will do that today, just for fun.
Activities I Love
- Cuddling with my kitties
- Taking a long, deep, hot, epsom salt bath preferably with jets
- Quiet walks in ancient places
Things I Love
- Fresh warm linens straight out of the drier
- 11 circuit labyrinths
- Things worn smooth with age and use
Places I Love
- The tiny creek just north of the farm house where I grew up
- The oldest part of my home in Tucson built in 1929
- Deserted places where land and water meet
Scents I Love
- hot apple pie
- alpine air
This was good. I needed this. It is calming and comforting to think of all these things.
