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,

melody

    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).

Today Wilder and I had a major @disneyland / @californiaadventurepark adventure. We got there before the park opened, and stayed until almost 7pm (super long day for us, since we are pass holders)! The parks weren't even packed, we waited no longer than 15 min for anything, and did as much as we could pack in. At the end of the day, Wilder still didn't want to leave, so I promised another visit soon. Taking a kid this young can be a challenge, but to me it's the most magical age so far and it just gets better every time. He loves it, and plays hard, excited around every little turn. We had the most fun today, I feel so happy. We said goodnight to each other with a huge, super tight hug and big kiss. My sweet boy. 🎈✨ #wildercobalt #californiaadventure #disneyland Getting to spend the week with my family was so lovely, despite that pesky hurricane canceling all of our plans. The quality time we got together was precious. •
PLUS...happy birthday sweet Jude! You are 3! 🎈🎈🎈

#judeemerson #wildercobalt ☔️S P L A S H💦 #irmageddon #wildercobalt He's ready. ⛈🌀💛#irmageddon #wildercobalt #florida We flew to Florida yesterday just in time. Granted, our original plans didn't include a hurricane, so that's too bad, but we are getting in some fun family time anyway. We got to see the moon in the sky on our way out of LA yesterday - I love this color palette. 💛 Today, I dropped my sweet boy off at his *first day of preschool*! He was so ready. He burst through the gate, running in, kicked his shoes off, and started playing with all the trucks immediately. I could barely get him to look up at me to give me a kiss goodbye. Then as I was leaving, he yelled out, "have a good day at work, momma!" 💔😍😭 He's gonna do so great. #wildercobalt #firstdayofpreschool #fbf to our vacation a couple weeks ago. Today Wilder stopped mid-bite at dinner, gasped, and said "where did my friends go?!" I asked him their names, and he said "Elsa and Faye!" I reminded him they are his cousins, and he just looked down sad and said, "yeah. I miss my cousins. I miss #beanheadfarm." 😔 So darn sweet. Wish we lived closer, @lyraburch & @elliotb13! Some amazing family memories were made this past week! Thankful we were able to take the time away! ❤️ #wildercobalt #beanheadfarm We just got back to LA from a truly rejuvenating family vacation. Off the grid (mostly), living in nature and spending every moment with some dearly loved family. Wilder got to experience camping in a tent for the very first time, and spent day in and day out chasing his big cousin Elsa around copying her every move. We couldn't have asked for a better week away! And we topped it off with this plane ride off the island before getting back to the mainland to head on home. #wildercobalt #beanheadfarm Wilder and @_derekhansen built a "farm" on the beach yesterday (with Elsa, who was much more helpful than Wilder). Wilder was mostly a "little pig" or "little cow". He begged to go in the freezing water, and we cooked out our dinner on the beach. A perfect evening with our family! #wildercobalt
