I’m beginning to set some intentions to get a few things back into progress once the kids go back to school on Wednesday.
I stopped the singing practice I had begun when my mum died, that’s one thing I want to try and start again. I have sung a few odds and ends since mum died but I haven’t done any serious singing practice since then. I know Mum loved my singing and I know she wanted me to sing more. I have tears running down my face writing this and it’s not easy to sing when you are close to tears or crying but it’s time to try and sing more again.
I also stopped my attempts to write a book on my experiences as a polytheist. The last things I wrote were about the festival of Beltane and I wasn’t satisfied with what I had written on that topic. I have chapters planned on the deities I have devotional relationships with as well as sections on other festivals. Mum was keen for me to write and wanted to introduce me to her current publisher. I wasn’t ready for that stage, I’m still not, but I’ve been in touch with mum’s publisher about mum’s books anyway. I need to try and get back to my writing again. It might be slow but I need to try. Mum would have wanted me to keep going with it and to try and get it published when I get it to that stage.
And I will still be going to the RDA Glasgow Group stables on a regular basis. I can’t imagine my life without going there regularly now.
All these are things I’ve been thinking about for a couple of weeks now. Setting them out like this will hopefully help me to move forward.
