A little time to sneak in some writing. Been patchy. The heat slows me down, and for good reason. Things take twice as long, standing in the heat with the sun baking my head.
I am glad to be my own boss. It's hot, I think, time to knock off. The weather is also my boss. Rain's coming tomorrow, I think, good day to plant. My mind, my hands, too slow in the heat. It doesn't get done.

Gender is in flux in the modern, western world, and likely always has been in many times and places.Read More
I forgot! I had planned to nix 30 day challenges in favor of following the moon. That was my plan, way back in December of last year. That plan didn't work out. I am not great at planning. I don't watch the clock very closely, and therefore, I am often late and stressed.Read More
It is on. The next 30 day challenge... because I need some new kinda kick (you get cred if you know who's lyrics those are). It's gonna be about my experience being a woman. And because I am woman and a mother, guess what, I am gonna start... tomorrow.
