Hi steppers,

It's May One. I think Elaine has an idea for opening this month's tread.

And IS, thank you for your kind words. I'm currently just barely healthy (sniffles for days) and know a day here (Wed.) and a couple of days there (Weekend) and I'll recharge.

Today I'm really feeling into letting go while going on. Interesting currents: alternating, direct, and off. Very Taoist sense.

Decided no email till after 10 am (it's 10:15 now, made it).

Decided to warm up here.

And with my first couple of hours I played with my Do It Yourself calendar. And for the fourth time in three weeks, laid out my commitments running to the middle of June. It's very clear now to me that I'm grabbing 3 days over the Holiday weekend. Prefer staycations as conferences and trips drained my energy.

And I allowed a few minutes to read for pleasure. I just finished a collection of John Gardner's book reviews. Crystal clear writer whatever his comments on the work he looked at. Per usual, reading one book generates 6 more to look up!

And I'm dabbling in Arthur Kleinman's "What Really Matters: Living a Moral Life amidst Uncertainty and Danger." I am a fan of Mr AK's work in general. At heart, he's a moral philosopher disguised as a doctor. I'm also in a conversation with a friend about this very topic. It just happened that it showed up via papberback swap and I ordered it sent last week.

And from the Little Free Libraries I found John O'Donohue's "Beauty: Rediscovering the True Source of Compassion, Serenity, and Hope." I just love his work, too. One is his quotes from years ago in the Sun sparked a major rewrite of my live's story. Spiritual advisor in a book.

Plus, the first comment he makes in the opening pages offered an idea for a workshop I'm to lead next week!

Now to track down Shake it Up by the Cars.

See everyone in the May thread,
