My morning today has been relatively quiet, but I wouldn't say silent. The birds chirp and the wind has picked up which, these days especially, makes me uneasy with the water so high...just means more churning and more beating against the fragile banks. I'm also hearing the all too familiar sound again of huge sideloader dump trucks bringing rock down the neighborhood road...down to the last couple houses, which have lost land and some of the rock put in last month. This doesn't bode well, considering we're only slightly into the 6-8 weeks of water releases at this level. Our downstairs remains dry and the sump pump continues to do it's job, coming on slightly more frequently each day. All these little reminders that things are not normal in my part of the world, as they are not in so many places these days. What is normal anyway?
I'm going to stretch my horizons and take a wire bending class at The Bead Co., a fun bead shop in Sioux Falls, this evening. Trying to think outside my own box....even as I make tinier collages, they can still make me feel larger as long as I'm breaking new ground, forging into new territory. I want to have something new on the horizon and I sense it's waiting out there....I just have to find it or perhaps conjure it up out of the depths!! And so, it's a new day...I'm taking them one at a time these days, as each one is quite enough unto itself.
Hope you're having a good one....think I'm going now to meet up with Google Reader, which told me yesterday that I am not following any blogs....what?!!!....what happened to the 100+ blogs I was following? I couldn't deal with it yesterday, but today I'm ready to take it on!
