Experiments in Truth

here we are.

i am FINALLY going to get this party started!

here in san francisco, i am a part of a local community/non-profit called reimagine.  tonight began one of our yearly learning labs called “Experiments in Truth”.  here is the description:

The master invites us to rethink or reimagine our whole lives in light of the Maker’s dream of greater wholeness for our world. This Learning Lab explores the physicality of spiritual formation. If I change what I do in my mind and body, how will it effect my capacity to flow with the creators energy & love? (what I eat? How I spend my time? The media I consume? How I use my money? Who I spend my time with?) This practical workshop seeks to deal with the disparity we often feel between how we want to live and how we actually live. Jesus spent 40 days in the wilderness fasting and facing his greatest shadows and temptations. Participants in this Learning Lab will engage in practices aimed at confronting our own shadows and obstacles to the spiritual life through “experiments in truth.”

one of my experiments in truth is a “creative” experiment: to begin a blog and upload one photo to it each day.  now, most of these will be via my iphone, but occasionally i will upload a shot or two from a camera other than my phone.  in addition to this “creative” experiment, i will be working on doing a little more crafting, at least 2 days a week.  i will also post my progression in that area.

please feel free to comment on anything you see here.  and check out some other people’s blogs who are posting their experiments on there!  (in the link menu bar!)

love and peace to you all,

    One thing I always found interesting, was to keep a journal that you only write in during the first 15 minutes that you’re awake in the morning. I did this for like 4-5 weeks, and the shit you actually write in there is crazy. You barely remember writing it, and its one of those things where you think to yourself, “did I really write that?” You can’t reread it until the entire 4 weeks is up… Try it, its crazy…. (I like to call it, writing with your monkey brains).

Nothing like a bonafide snow day in LA! ❄️
#wildercobalt #abbotkinney I made this little beauty the other day! It sure does bring a little something special to my living room! 🌲✨ .
#wreathmaking ✨we finished the tree tonight!✨
#wildercobalt 🎄 We got our Christmas tree tonight with this adorable, grumpy (?sometimes?) toddler. In typical 2-going-on-3 fashion, he went from “I DON’T WANT TO GET A TREE” to “ONLY ME AND DADDY GET A TREE” (which was so odd for him) to “YAY CHRISTMAS! JINGLE BELLS! CHRISTMAS TREES!” And went between the first and last of those about 20x, before finally landing on happiness. 🙄 We also did our first ever advent reading as a family, which was really special. Even with the rollercoaster 🎢 of emotions a toddler brings to the table (for all of us), I wouldn’t change a thing! #wildercobalt #3rdchristmas #christmastraditions Travel day with this buddy. He’s a good one. 🧒🏼 #wildercobalt My little elf is ready for Christmas! & I’m ready to give him a fun month full of activities to get him in the spirit! 🎄💫⛄️🎅🏻
#wildercobalt #3rdchristmas Today, Wilder had a perfect day of little boy-ness. Riding on a train, picking up leaves and sticks, running barefoot through a forest...it was an afternoon for the books! #wildercobalt #childhoodisbarefoot He may have had 3 ice creams, some 
gummy bears, & chocolates all between the hours of 4:30 and 5:30pm, but hey, 🤷🏻‍♀️. It was the #museumoficecream for goodness sake! Such a fun afternoon! 🍦🍧🍭 #wildercobalt I’m so sad I missed this beautiful beach adventure @_derekhansen & #wildercobalt had this morning! Looks like my kiddo is busting some serious moves on this sand dune! 🕺🏼 Love you, my wild boy!
📷: @_derekhansen Wilder was pretty sad to take down the Halloween decorations, so I pulled out some of my paper scraps from @urbanic and threw together a little Thanksgiving craft to hopefully start to get him excited for the next round of holidays! 🦃🎄🎅🏻 Of course I ended up doing 90% it it myself, but...🤷🏻‍♀️
