Come little leaves
said the wind one day
come to the meadows
with me and play :
put on your dresses
of red and gold ,
for summer is past
and the days grow cold.
and another autumn arrived.
It's been a while since I was here.
It's never because I do not want
to write a new blog .
Maybe it is because I like
it most to write about processes.
about development , progress ,
and that's not always simple.
For example ..... interior-design
and gardening are
subjects I love to READ about .
but I am not an expert to write about it .
I do love to tell and share about
how I search in life .
This autumn I realise how I have grown
I still think about it as my new life.
The life being retired from work
( kindergartenteacher at a Waldorf school )
the life living on my own since
my four children grew up and left the house
I can say now , afterwards
It's been a lot !
maybe that's the reason why there was so much
that needed attention , afterwards .
the greatest gift has been that
there was TIME ..... lots of time .
In my previous blog I told about
the things I have been doing
to keep creative , busy .
While my hands were making colorful beauty
my head could organise a lot and
was able to let go .....
Meanwhile I have also been very busy as
a grandmother .
My new and wonderful activity....
My one and only grandchild keeps me busy.
In being a grandmother all seems to come
my experience as a mother and a teacher .
on a whole new level .
much more in harmony .
It shows me who I am and have always been .
I always thought I did what I did
because I had to .
I had to do my best , as a mother and as a teacher.
But I did not realize
how much I did it my way .
That's really a bit sad ....afterwards
but that's how it was .
So..... in this part I had a lot to make up for .
Going through my house
and ordening all I kept ......
was very therapeutic .
Another thing that happened and
is very important now is :
Blogging , Facebook Pinterest Instagram
New digital ways to connect .
It is a wonderful way to get to know yourself
in new ways .
I am still very much a BOOKperson.
Love to buy a book that helps me ....
guides me to learn and understand more.
My latest gain has a very original
layout and I found out
I love that too
