229: Lifting the Lamp Once More

Let's just get this out of the way right now:

  

The New Colossus


Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

Strategy:

Failure. You need to make your peace with it because it is the first step to learning.

Put a Lid On It:

Still prepping for the next cherry harvest. It's time to start getting your materials and spices and supplies together for the spring canning.

My favorite books:

The Joy of Pickling
The Ball Book of Preserving Foods

Aw Shoot!

Still unhealed. Using My Fitness Pal app with good success, but I am thinking also of reviving my podcast "Running Dog" to prompt me to run again.

Various socks. Of interest: The repaired ones, after the Invasion of the Sock-Nibbling Vermin Mice!




Pussyhats.

Dizzy Blondes: 
 I now weave on the smallest of the Schacht Looms. All handspun so far.


Strategy:

If you MUST demand change from people, do it with a slow plan. Give them time to cope with changes, help them mourn the perceived losses, and wait for the moment when they see the improvement.


I cannot recommend these folks enough! 1-800-GOT-JUNK
