|Last Section of my Creative Vision Board....|
warm with a sweater a good book and a cup of tea
in grossed in words, stories and day dreams.
I love books....the covers, the pages, the smells and the knowledge in them that I struggle sometimes to grasp and have to use other ways to comprehend them so it really sinks in. I also love making books as of journals. I know there are whole lot of other that like them too.
This morning NPR sent out a email that I snag on to now and then this morning it was about What is Dyslexia and also the audio Unlocking Dyslexia
Amazing being a dyslexic person...which is hard for people sometimes to believe, I've had to over come many obstacles and still have flashbacks and fears around it.
I sit in the morning hours before most people wake in the homestead here. Alone at the kitchen table with the sounds of the house and the light of a candle.
I'm reading stories from The 13 Original Clan Mothers, following the months.
Kent Nerburn's book-Calm Surrender- Walking the Path of Forgiveness,
Seven Philosophies for Native American Woman,
Studio Stories-Illuminating Our Lives Through Art.
The Artist's Rule-Share this with my book club...over the past year,
And my personal spiritual studies....
Besides reading them I underline things as a way to help me comprehend, looking words up for better understanding and listening to the word being said when I use the internet/google...then I will type out these areas that I've underlined. (got files saved on many books I've read) And if I find a willing soul I'll share the notes with them...Like we can connect this way? ...but what I'm finding out this is a complex way I've found to help myself learn...and not everyone is or chooses to read and study like this.
It's all good because what is most important is there are many ways to learn and feed my need for knowledge and despite the dyslexia it's my mountain to climb and while I'm doing that as the quote from Rosa Macaulay shared the Richness this all brings to my life.
Filling my well of many topics, be it personal and bigger then I....the point of this blog post was the relationship on my vision board with the woman, book and a cup of tea or coffee. How despite the complexities of reading and writing I still hungry for the words, audio or writing....And when listening to the Audio of NPR this one surely speaks loudly...luckily know that my son has dyslexia early lead us on a path like the little girl in this segment.
OK rambling but also exploring....feeding my needs I guess you say.
