Back to normal

Tuesday, January 21, 2020


(My friend, wise heron, watched me clean the beach.)


I'm all better now! Yesterday was horrible and lovely. Horrible because I fished out 5 gallons of garbage from a rather short section of shoreline. Lovely because afterward I had the whole beach and the salt water marsh to myself, except for a friendly heron and several robins and crows.

Afterward, I splurged on the calories and went to my favorite indie bookstore cafe for a blackberry-cardamon pastry and a mint tea. I spent some time journaling, and had a breakthrough on the anxiety front. I feel good again.

I got home to good news in my email box, too! I was accepted into a the North Puget Sound stewards program, so I have another steward notch to add to my belt. I'm really excited for this one, since I can work with shoreline ecosystems. My main passion is the plants and systems in high-risk communities, like those in alpine meadows, recovering burn areas, and, of course, shoreline species.

Be the good you want in the world. If enough of us are the good, perhaps we can finally push back all the bad.

Life should be back to normal today. It's windy, but temps will be in the 40s and possible 50s. No snow left at all. Classes are back to normal, just a big catch up game to play. It's my late start day, so I don't go in for a couple of hours. That gives me time for yoga and a bit of work!

Have a lovely Tuesday :)
