May 21, 2021. 5. CLUTTER.

Turns out we are spending more time at the farm these days. Lots to do.

Just this morning in my inbox: "Throughout life we must cope with blockages that impede our forward momentum. Whether these obstacles are of a personal, professional, or societal nature, our first instinct may be to push against the obstruction. But the simplest way to alleviate resistance is to approach it gently, with a soft manner and kind intentions. Struggle and strife can find no foothold when confronted with gentleness because conflict can only exist when fed by two opposing forces."  ~ Daily OM.

Blackflies are out and, as I work gardens outside, almost welcome the burning stings of the flies on my expose wrists, dirt settling under fingernails, staining the guitar calluses on my left hand fingers, birds sing, bees hum by, our 3 remaining chickens eagerly picking around my fingers, helping weed, scoring the occasional nightcrawler. 

When heat and flies become too annoying, I'm weeding the inside of the house, culling what no longer fits life's picture. Recently I have become overwhelmed with thirty plus years of accumulated clutter. It stifles my creativity (I now realize) and makes me feel paralyzed and plain miserable. Out with the old, in with the new.  

At this point in the game all I want to do is write, work on music and nothing else really. So why am I not..? Back to clutter. Chores piling up. Low energy (because of that!). Time to tackle. 

On a successful note, I am super PLEASED with myself having successfully installed and downloaded this interface and Audible software all by myself. Big deal, as I loath technicalities on computers. I just don't have the patience. But then.. I have! I did it. Not sure when I actually have time to dive into it, but for now, this suffices.  

My daily yoga practice really truly helps to 'focus rite'.  Here's to Adriene!
