Shame On Me


The last time I posted was February??

Shame on me. I’ve been distracted by the new job, overwhelmed by everything in my head that wants to be stabbed into existence, and sick (nothing serious, just ick)…still no excuse for ignoring the blog. I will try to do better.

NEW PROJECT-I’ve decided to create a number of Heads in Jars ala Futurama, and am taking suggestions for the heads to be created. Thus far, I will be stabbing the following heads into existence: Trump, Brownback (governor of KS), Kobach (sec. of state KS), Hillary, The Koch Bros (as cojoined heads, or a double headed serpent, can’t decide), David Cameron, Prince, and a Kardashian of my choice.

Who do YOU want me to create?

POLITICS-I’m still all Bernie, still prepared to vote all the KS legislature out of office, am calling for Option 4 as a way to save our beautiful state from the arrogant and ill-advised poor excuse for a governor we have in Kansas. We just need to be kind and to do the right thing instead of lording our choices over others. Agree to disagree, but don’t legislate who can love who, where they can go pee, or how/who/if they believe in a higher power. I, for one, am on God’s team, and I try to live my life according to the commandments Jesus confirmed to the Pharisees as the most important: love God with all my heart, soul and mind; love my neighbors as myself. I don’t have all the answers, and anyone who says they do, doesn’t either.

CLASSES-I’ll be scheduling classes as soon as I confirm a location. While my usual spot at Potwin Presbyterian as a member of the Potwin Fiber Artisans is still available, it does present challenges that make teaching classes more difficult for me, aka lugging cases of materials and supplies up a flight of stairs, through the sanctuary, up another couple of steps and into a beautiful room. The room is great-getting there with all my stuff is not so fun. So I am looking at other options within Topeka, and you’ll be the first to know when I have it confirmed!

PERSONAL-Life is good, hoping to be house hunting before the end of the year (and yes, I’ll be looking for studio/classroom space as part of that new home), hoping to launch a couple of young men into their lives. For those of you that pray, I always accept them, especially over my boys, and my grandson. Still have areas where I am walking in faith that all will be sorted out and reconciled someday, but know that I’m trying to do the right thing. I posted something on FB this week, and I’m holding on to it tightly on those days when I am caught by memories:

My hope is that they will remember mommy tried.

Even when she was tired, even when she was stressed. I hope they will know that I did it all for them. That I had every intention of being great, good, and grand, but some days all I could be was okay.
