I am Calm

I keep saying it: I am calm, I am calm. Breathe in, breathe out.

Yesterday I went through all our clothes, washed, spot-cleaned and mended where necessary, then starched (!) and ironed. 2am found me looking at ‘How to Pack’ clips on youtube, very informative they were too. Today spotify is delighting me with the entire playlist of Charles Trenet while I polish off orders, and Stefan has been doing the cooking.

I am not worrying if my new bra is too pointy, my hair too long, and whether to wear glasses or contacts. Too late for all that! I do wonder about 50,000 people for four days when I am so accustomed to the tranquility of this backwater in all senses of the word… I am an introvert. I wonder how many other bloggers are too, so happy with the manageable intimacy of blogging?

    I think as we become older and wiser we enjoy our own company and our homes. I have noticed that about myself also. I can just see you puttzing in your cabin on the water, ironing away, sounds like a lovely day to me too,Kathysue

  2. I’m a complete extrovert so it all sounds wonderful to me! ;-) Enjoy your trip!

    Good luck and bon voyage! I thought there were some very pertinent items in this post. It’s funny how this medium has given a wonderful new dimension to our lives.

  4. You are probably in the thick of it by now… look forward to hearing all about it :)

  5. It will be great Tricia. If I were home in Westchester I would head right into the city to see you. Best of luck, Lynn

    I am an introvert too. No suprise there…being an artist and all. Most artists are. I do like to be in near the city because I do like to be in the midst of diverse people. I used to think I would like to live on a farm with neighbors far away until we tried to buy land in the midwest out in the middle of nowhere. I backed out of the deal, because I realized I just couldn’t do it. I prefer my own space but want to go out and meander through the crowds too. Blogging is a sweet community to be connected with others but still able to wear jammies all day while I paint!
