If you check out the Contact, About, Quotations pages above, you'll see I've added to them. Oh, I've added another page too, Testimon-ials. You can get an idea of my personality and the nature of how I work with others and who I am, there. If you are nosey about your innkeeper.
But that isn't why I've been absent. I've been exhausted. Friday-Sunday, I was in class---no, not traffic school. Upping my credentials and training, in San Francisco, I was. Two of those days I rode from Alameda, on my bike to South San Francisco, near the airport. Whew!
The new Bay Bridge has a bike path to Treasure Island, allowing me to make my way there. I caught a bus to SF from the island and rode through the City to the airport for a total 25 miles (40.23 km). There was no ferry service over the weekend from Alameda Island to So. San Francisco, so I went the long way, Friday and Saturday, to class.
It looks like I could give a workshop in August for the organization that taught me this weekend. They're interested in my talking about the seven modalities I use when working with clients and the exercises I have them do, when we are together. I have to think about that.
My Gratitudes for This Day:
1. It was an experience, being in a class this weekend. There were plenty of nice people there. Many intense conversations. Too many. I was depleted by 4:00 p.m. No energy left for postings here. But still, it was a change, being with many of a similar bent.
2. Friday, I had a two-hour conversation with a dear friend. I needed that, especially good was reading poetry together. I hadn't seen this friend in awhile; it was nice.
3. Last week I completed a poem, my second since November. This, after not having written a poem in ten years. It was good doing it. Better, was what motivated me. :-> Creating a poem strengthens my writing. Poetry is all about economy, a good quality to develop as a scribe.
4. Seeing my skill sets grow is fulfilling. That happened, this weekend. I am grateful when my effectiveness increases.
