Artful Living

for goodness sakes

It has been awhile since my last blog entry. I do want to get back on the blog as it is a wonderful way for me to be held accountable as well as serve as a time capsule.

Who would have thought the year 2020 would ever have been wrought with so much heartache. I look back over this the last several months and wonder what take-aways will be my learning curve.

My Grandmother Elizabeth used to shake her head and utter phrases, “for goodness sakes” – or “mercy me.” I find myself uttering similar words yet at the same time, I am full of gratitude for so much. While, we are all missing being close to family and friends, how grateful for this digital world to be able to connect via face time, zoom and all the various platforms where we can share, learn and keep one another laughing.

I started a fun weekly class hosted by Jeanne Stafford and Dion Flynn. The class is “Improvisors mindset” and I look forward to every week as we learn new ways to communicate by engaging in improv. It has taught me to look for ways to enter every day with a Yes mindset in a world that seems to be telling us No. Wash your hands, wear a mask, use hand sanitizer signs are everywhere and even signs to tell us where to stand.
