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).

Even when peonies are falling apart and on their last leg, they are still so lovely. Perhaps there's a lesson here? 🙃 You could definitely say we have stationery fever. I'm ok with it. 📝 💛🗒🖋💌 We saw the best, most beautiful shades of pink today wandering around magical NYC. Head over to @urbanic's feed for her slideshow of pink! 👛🌸💕 New life goal: become the "Brunch Lady"
🍳💁🏻 #nss2017 I'm the worst today! It's my loving and wonderful husband's birthday today. I'm out of town, and he is home celebrating with sweet Wilder. They went to Disneyland, and I'm sure had the best time. Though I'm sad I'm not with him today, I'm so glad these two get some precious one-on-one time together. I'm thankful to have this man as my partner in life, and for all he does to support me/our little family. Happy birthday, @_derekhansen! ❤️ This beautiful Mother's Day arrangement was lovingly foraged from around the neighborhood by @_derekhansen & #wildercobalt. Those two are master flower arrangers! I'm so lucky. ❤️🌷 This morning was the annual fire fighters pancake breakfast, where you get to eat pancakes and climb on the fire truck. Fortunately for us, those are Wilder's 2 favorite things in life (he requests pancakes literally every day). He had the BIGGEST grin on this face the whole time we were there, AND he added another favorite thing to his list...bounce houses. This kid can JUMP. It was such a delight to get to see him so joyous and in his element completely. Thankful to be this boy's momma. #wildercobalt 🚒🥞❤️ My little Wilder is growing into such an amazing little being. The way he says "ok, mama" when I ask him to do something melts my heart every dang time. Or how he randomly says "I forgot" when it makes no sense at all in context. Or my favorite as of late - "mama, what you doing?" 😍 I mean, what!?! His language skills are beyond incredible, and right there with it is his dexterity (see my Instagram story of him opening a Babybel cheese by himself) and coordination. He is so dang smart and blows me away daily with what he observes and how clearly he sees the world. 
Wilder, you special boy, you are my world, and I love you endlessly. #wildercobalt These flowers by @hellohoneyflowerco for the #amylovesurbanic event the other night were bananas! ✨🌸 We got to look at some pretty poppies this morning! This little guy has been very into flowers lately, so this was a special treat for him -- too bad (for him) he wasn't allowed to pick any! 🌼 #wildercobalt
