a spring manifesto

pentax ME super - kodak 800
tara wrote a spring manifesto and that seemed like a good thing...

~ plant things.
~ be more aware of the moon.
~ dare.
~ worry less and do more.
~ eat lunch in the garden.
~ learn to crochet.
~ build.
~ banish negativity.
~ use the stash.
~ do something scary at least once a week (includes phone calls and taking shots only on film).
~ help husband with the garden house.
~ acquire a goat.
~ and more bunnies.
~ shoot film.
~ get in touch with my inner viking.
~ dress up. for no reason.

this is starting to sound a whole lot like resolutions and we know i'm not so keen on those, but i want spring to be full of growth and writing is the new praying, so consider this a prayer of sorts.

What a wonderful idea, a spring manifesto. I may have to do this!
I like your intentions, especially 'do something scary once a week' and 'dress up more for no reason'. I may have to adopt that one!

Wonderful manifesto. I think I may have to partake. I feel stuck right now, even as Spring seeps into the world.

don't think of them as resolutions, think of them as prompts. :)

That is awesome! I'm going to work on one myself and I'm starting with "dare". Love that.
Cheers, jj

I'm for springing forward to summer and a lawn chair and a beer or two ... and maybe a sandwich and some cole slaw and a dill pickle.

As for dressing up - t-shirt, shorts, sandals and cap - that's just fine with me.

And never doing stupid stuff like mowing lawns or standing in front of dumb shrubs watering 'em with a garden hose.

And no mosquitos either.

Hello Julie

Funny to read that you want a goat--I was asking Mr G if we could get one and once again he told me "NO"!

I am reading a book called The Complete Idiot's Guide to Raising Goats--good book even though I will never raise a goat(but who knows).

Take care


Tracy :)
