|Anchor Point, Alaska 6/10 by me, Lyn Drathring|
Just thought I'd start us out with a picture tonight.
I am needing to rise above and see the big picture before I get lost in the minutia.
I have yet to really get into the nitty gritty of my life/work change questions and issues. (I am using learning about the blog to sidetrack the topic). No, maybe that is not a fair statement, since running a blog, or several, is actually part of the hoped for bigger plan. One thing I know I need is a plan, that and to actually follow the plan. I can see how one can get easily distracted or off task. I plan on taking one or two more online courses, one about crafting a business plan (ugh, sounds so boring, but necessary), and the other on travel writing (definitely part of the plan). Truthfully, I generally plan on the go. Even when I have a solid plan down in writing it often changes as I move through the it. A plan is really just a guideline anyway, isn't it?!
For now I feel blessed by the support and encouragement of friends. Speaking of support and friends, I added a web links list tonight and my first entry is to the website of a good friend and very talented quilt artisan, not to mention a great photographer, too. I hope you stop in for a visit at ABBY-Q and view all the amazingly beautiful quilts and bags she has crafted.
I also added the online learning site I use. The other new thing tonight, although it isn't showing up yet, is a favorites list for books, movies, etc. I really love books and have many I would like to share with you. It will be tough to thin the list. One I was going to start with, I can't find. I am not sure I have the title just right and I don't have the author. So I'll put it here for now, Repacking Your Bags for the Rest of Your Life. This is a book I found and used back in the '90s, I think. It was essential at that time when I was making some other life choices about school and work. Hmmm, is this a trend? I'll save that discussion for another day.
Thank you my friends for stopping by. I am so glad you are with me on this journey.
