Summer program

Good day to you all.
I've been busy, 
lots,
bubbling,
in that,
caldron mind,
of mine.

I have been,
reading,
reflecting,
praying,
spent time in the company,
of friends,
went on a recent road trip.

Spring is finally here,
rainy, chilly,
but, also sunny and hopeful.

Been thinking,
what I will do this Summer,
my part time gig is on hiatus in the Summer
I would like to take some time,
to work on various projects,
and not just squander the time away,
or work at some crappy job,
rest, relax, recharge but not squander.
I want to read more and write more.

I have a long reading list,
fiction, history, theology, biography.
I find I read less than I used to,
I spend lots of time on social media,
I consider connection to people,
live and virtual,
important, essential,
but,
I need to step away from the screen,
much more often.
And I will.

I also want to spend more time,
walking, contemplating, in peaceful settings.
Part of writing, to me, 
requires-
quiet

Most of my life is quite,
social.
I love to talk, I love to discuss,
I love to learn and argue.
I love people.
I also yearn for silent time,
on my own.

So the Spring and Summer program,
for the blog,
will be,
to write three times a week.
Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday.
The plan, is to write one post,
on a spiritual theme,
one on reading,
one on what has got me,
thinking, grumbling, cheering,
my basic rambling blog.

Today is the 1 st of May,
I love May,
it is my birth month,
it is a beautiful month,
of flowers,
of hope,
a month of longer light.

Happy May day, you all,
dear comrades

Be well

Later girls,
BB
