I spent a few days with family and lifelong friends in Michigan. We again celebrated birthdays with laughter and it became a reunion of sorts with neighbors too. My sons also were able to join the event. Now, back to my adventures here in my ‘neck of the woods’. All photos by Wanda Callagy
At times I make the effort to plan a few things. I attempt to add a little structure. It hasn’t been going as I thought it might lately.
I must accept.
I have a “See how it goes’ existence and live in a ‘wait and see world’ at this very moment. This is what my life is all about. I really thought I could accept total ambiguity. Hogwash.
It is exciting and scary at the same time. Wild. Not What I Thought. But I wonder to myself, is living in the moment, not knowing what is ahead for me really so bad?
So, for now, I just cleaned my house. I am off to an adventure when I wake up in the morning.
A sense of humor is in order. And I will play some music, all the way along.
I enjoy a woodsy space where I have two flower beds and a small raised organic bed with just a handful of edible food.. The simple act of moving the soil, pulling weeds and harvesting results is an indescribable comfort. Such beauty and healthy too! Tomorrow my agenda includes blueberry picking..
“Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things.’
See what is new and a little of what GERHARDS GUITARWORKS in Windham is all about. Alana and Cue gave me a tour of their relocated facility which highlights the art and their passion that goes in to this labor of love.
Then, read about the upcoming benefit for the Pat Tiernan Scholarship Fund. Music will be @ Stout in
Albany from Noon until 8 PM on August 9th. In remembrance of and to celebrate Pat’s life, a student each year is chosen from his high school to receive money toward majoring in music.

Yup, Black Eyed Susans. I picked up a plant today to add to a corner. It is amazing how this plant reproduces and adds this color this time of year. Jane there at Hillhaven Farmstand and I agree that these flowers are special..”they make you happy.” I agree. Coffee and conversation with friends and several hugs from Trenton and later a long walk was my day worth mentioning.
