My great grandfather’s boat, last steamboat in inland waterway.
I didn’t include the new fridge. A week from today we close, at 2 p.m., on our refinance so we can keep the house in the family.
It’s spring and the deck needs staining, trimp touch up, landscaping, garden planted.
But at least this is as it should be.
It’s raining, germinating all the wild flowers I just planted. Thyme, oregano, parsley, chives, and even leaf lettuce are coming up from last year.
A mild winter. It’s quiet here in winter, anyway.
Thai food for those guys and probably steaks and eggs for me tomorrow. Some lovely dark brewed coffee. My heart is bouncing around–had it checked and it’s not the type of irregularity they worry about. Though basically the increase in red meat has made me feel much better.
Now if I could get some sleep. Not much of that lately.
I love words so I write them. I’ve been doing that since I was old enough to read. I am a published literary writer and I was an adjunct English professor at Northern Michigan University for many years. I write and live and love off the grid on 35 acres and a trout stream in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula with my son, Joshua, who has Down Syndrome, and with an English Shepherd dog named Maggie, and with my husband when he can make it here which isn’t often. This blog started out being about my work, and it will continue to be. ( I’m working on a novel about premonitions and dreams.) But this blog is also about living off the grid and about my experimentation with diet—most recently the Carnivore Diet. I started on the Ketogenic diet, but have moved into Carnivore. How long, I don’t know. But I’ve become interest in the effects of diet on not just my health, but on creativity. And I’m interested in the effects of the diet on my dreams.
Ah, dreams... The day before my son was born, my mother “dreamed” or was told my son would have Down Syndrome, something she told my brother ahead of time. I’ve never known what to make of that. So I’m interested in prophetic dreams, lucid dreaming, creativity and dreams, night terrors. Who isn't interested in that? I’m interested in Freud (more Jung) and Einstein’s theories of time and how their ideas inform my dreams. I’m interested in mining a deeper relationship with a dream world not confined to daytime experiences, and how the night might inform a more fully imagined daytime “reality.” And vice-versa. Which is the dream?? I’m exploring dreams of all sorts. Come explore with me…
