Part of a Den, reading Women Who Run With the Wolves

I have joined a DEN of women seeking to find their wild selves. This is happening on facebook and I love that we are reading this book! We are taking it chapter by chapter, with discussion in between. I found my ma’s old copy and now I can write in the margins too. It can be a tough read, but when done this way in a group, it’s making it a pleasant and intuitive experience!

After reading the first chapter I felt compelled to draw a bit…and in the book no less! So here is my simple rendering!

Depicts me or can by either one of my daughters, seeking a path that will lead her to her bones. Plan on updating here after each chapter!

The Car Wash Song! and a lesson learned!

The day before a big road trip to Northern California, my girls decided to wash my car. It was a gorgeous, sunny day here in Los Osos so the plan was a go and marked one item off our summer fun list! They decided they would take care of everything, and I could go on working and preparing for our trip. Well, in a series of what is to be considered, stalls, they finally got to the car washing part. But first they couldn’t find the sponges, then they couldn’t find the soap or the bucket! But eventually, all the tools were ready. And while I was frantic about the day getting away from me, my youngest daughter decided a song was in order.

This made all the interruptions worth while….and made me realize……..the process is half the progress….so enjoy the process!!!!!! Take note and enjoy your process!
