It’s amazing what happens when you journal. I’ve never journaled before. I tried when I was younger, but my thoughts went too fast for my fingers. So I gave up. But now it seems to be different. It seems to be the right time.
A while ago, I stopped by my friend Lorraine’s farm to buy some wool. Lorraine and her husband, Gene, raise a Jacob sheep. Jacobs are a beautiful multi-horned breed, white with black or lilac (grey to brown) spots. Both males and females are horned with one or two pairs. And the ewes generally produce twins and lamb without requiring much assistance. Hand-spinners love this wool, as well as knitters! You can read more about their farm here:
We talked about so many things that morning, life, farming, spinning and knitting, and how we both ended up in Plumas County. Lorraine was a teacher in Davis but knew she and her husband wanted to make a change. She said “once we voiced our intentions we started making our way up to Plumas County…without even realizing it.”
It’s amazing to think how that happens. Once you say your intentions out loud it seems that each decision you make propels you to that decision. Small steps towards your larger goal. They are no longer just thoughts but actual tangible ideas. Ideas that can grow off the paper into real life.
So, where does that leave me? I have so many ideas, thoughts, goals that it’s hard to pick just one.
Right now, I think I’ll simply start with finishing the infinity scarves before my next show, December 10-11, Napa Expo!
