Every night I go to bed, I have thoughts swirling in my head. Things to do. Scrapbook pages I want to create. Gifts I want to make. Skills I want to learn. And, of course, daily happenings that I don't want to forget, but invariably will by tomorrow morning, only to pop up in a random thought weeks down the road. So, here I am. I may use this blog daily to empty my head and heart before cuddling up in my duvet, or as it may be, I may write in it once a month. Who knows. It is for me, but perhaps something I write or learn may spark a fire in someone else. Perhaps it may quiet a mind or make you feel like you are not alone out there. It is for me. But perhaps it is for you.

Wandering Day

This looks like a perfect start to a wandering day...

I subscribe to a newsletter from one of my favourite artists, Ali Edwards, called 52 Creative Lifts.  She recently wrote about The Fine Art of Wandering, in which she quoted from a children's book Best Friends For Frances by Russell Hoban.

"Let's play baseball," said Frances.

"I can't," said Albert.

"Today is my wandering day. "

"Where do you wander?" said Frances.

"I just go around until I get hungry," said Albert. "Then I eat my lunch."

As a planner, this might be stressful for me, but it sounds fun, so maybe I'll give it a try...
Have you ever just wandered?
