I realize that I am a Creator more than anything else in the world. More than any of my labels I identify with this one the most. So March is the moment for creation, budding green underneath the dreary rain. So, here's a neat quote to start off my adventure, "Life is a great big canvas; throw all the paint on it you can." (Anon.)
March 2nd: I finished and submitted a review/summary of the webinar (about Digital Preservation) I attended back in December. It was 4 pages long! A normal review is half a page, but this webinar was 2 hours long and the transcript ran up to 20 pages. I was lucky to summarize it all in that amount.
That night I attended my Storytelling Guild meeting, where we collectively brainstormed for various upcoming events. On the way, I had an inspiration for a personal story called "The Monkey, the Owl, the Fish, and the Raven" about the long, hard recovery I had over my ex and the men who played a large role in getting from "All boys are stupid" to "Boys without spines are stupid," which is a much healthier outlook on life.
March 3rd: I finished my God Box. I had attended a multi-media class back in November and made a prayer box
dedicated to Mary. In it I've put little trinkets to represent the passions I'm trusting to Universe. When I went back to the class in December I began a box dedicated to the masculine God. Unfortunately, I didn't finish, but 3 months later and on this New Moon night, I completed this creation. I have pictures of the bottom & inside on my <a href="http://www.29gifts.org/profile/ChristiU">blog</a>.
March 4th: I had a storytelling gig where I convinced most of an audience of small children that my family has a genetic line of faery with the story, "The Selkie's Skin".
March 6th: My friends Chelsea & D.C. had a baby and suddenly I was a press agent for the new arrival. Granted, Mommy had asked me to take on the honour of passing the word along the day before Baby Blueberry popped into the world. I have to admit, though, I was having fun turning each new detail into a full-on feature article. My old journalism professors would have been proud.
March 7th: I've been knitting on my first pair of socks since late summer. This evening I began the finishing touches of the 2nd one- binding off.
March 8th: Yet another Baby Blueberry article.
March 9th: Today is Lent and I came up with a most ingenious way to keep my holy sacrifice vow- pretend that all bread has bacon hidden within it. If that has kept True to vegetarianism since I was 18, surely I can use it to get through 40 days without wheat.
March 10th: I've started two sets of writing projects- a new story about Anansi the Spider for next month's 4 storytelling gigs and a review of the Keith Richards' memoir, <i> Life </i>.
