Of late I have been extricating myself from the news cycle. It not that what is being delivered is not ‘important’, but that it is not generally actionable. It’s way more noise than signal right now (if not always!). That said, there is a whole other set of information that is of major importance to me.
How is my family holding up? My dogs? Anyone need their meds? Have I dug into deciding what to do with the water softener yet (nope!)? Do I need to put some more tee-posts along the fence line to manage the winds here (yep!)? How is the shop doing? Do I owe anyone a design or quote? Is there any tool maintenance I should take care of?
Then there is the more personal stuff. Am I working out, stretching, and doing enough Somatics to keep myself functional and out of trouble? Am I playing enough guitar to keep me sane(r)? How’s my food? Am I eating for fuel and health or more poorly out of stress or emotional impulse? Am I meditating, doing my trance work?
How about spirit work? Am I making my offerings? Am I keeping my promises to the beasties? Am I doing practical magic for any and all of the above items where that seems like a viable support or path? Am I reading anything that helps my psychic state? And am I reading anything that is un-helping my psychic state? (Stop that shit!)
Which is all my list, or part of it. And it’s damn near Spring Equinox and I know that I at least have been slacking on much of the above. Which is not guilt or shame or self-recrimination, it’s just the facts. And the facts in this case are actionable intelligence. Stuff I can actually do that will actually help.
This weekend is the last Full Moon of Winter here in the Northern Hemisphere. Spring coming, it’s go time. How are you doing, outside of the noise? Are you taking the steps to make yourself and your people OK?
Blessings to you all.
