Thought you might like to read my first blog post ever. It was originally published on free2soar on June 27, 2010.
Free to soar . . .
Riding the currents high above the ground
Like a magnificent hot air balloon
Or an eagle gliding effortlessly.
While I soar . . .
Do I unwittingly send others plummeting to the ground?
Do I entangle them in ropes that hinder their flight?
Or do I simply leave them where they are?
As this adventure takes to the sky,
May we all fly a little higher
And help others do the same.
. . . they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint (Isaiah 40:31, ESV).
I found out some interesting things about my story during Camp NaNo, but July was definitely not the month to hit a 10,000 word fiction writing goal.
~ HopeStreamRadio contributions

~ finish reading/make significant headway in Desperate Measures by Sandra Orchard, My Life A.S. Is by Benjamin Collier, Once Upon a Sandbox by Carolyn Wilker, The Convict’s Thumbprint by Beverley Boissery, The Life Ready Woman by Shaunti Feldhahn and Robert Lewis, The Language of Sparrows by Rachel Phifer,

As you can see, I’ve crossed one book off the list . . . and added another. However, I’m pretty sure I’m not going to continue with Maccow’s book, at least night right now.
~ visit my ROW80 peeps once or twice per week except when I’m in the UK
It has been great to re-visit those I’ve connected with before . . . and visit some new ROWers as well.
~ walk from 3-5x per week (break in my hiking boots)
I’m taking the stairs two at a time. That’s gotta count for somethin’.
~ resistance training 2-3x per week
When I resist training, does that count?
~ eat better (hoping to get to the local farmers’ market weekly)
~ no trip to the market this week but yummy fajitas for supper on Saturday
~ drink more water
I’m drinking more than I have been. My large cup helps lots.
