October review


Well, I’ve practiced and reflected for a whole month on letting go. Has my load gotten any lighter? (I did lose a couple of pounds.) Truthfully, I did not get rid of all the useless junk around my house. I did not clean all my bookshelves. I still carry some—well, maybe many—prejudices, grudges, fears and deleterious attitudes. But my grasp has loosened a tiny bit. The positives for this month of letting go have been: awareness of the many things to which I cling; a growth in willingness to let go; and a growing hope that one day I will truly be free of all that binds me in order to live in the vivid magnificence of every moment. Isn’t that what heaven is all about?

Since retiring from Northwest Airlines and moving to the Pacific Northwest, I have more time to devote to writing. My first novel, "Tales of Two Sisters" was published over a year ago. I have been writing poetry for a long time and am attempting to collate my poetry into a short book, with pictures. A sequel to "Tales of Two Sisters" should be getting closer to completion soon. Gardening and tending the vineyard take a lot of time in the summer. Even though I love the outdoors, these activities do cut down on my writing. So I appreciate that wintertime allows me time to write. Writing, for me, is what brings things into focus and helps me to make sense of the things that life brings. It is a gift to me and I hope that it will be to you also.
