I enjoyed Vlog #4 very much and having it as a premier gave me the chance to interact for half an hour or so. This is a new challenge for me but in many ways not so different to what I already do in writing my blog, being at one with nature and then interacting with the people I have never met before. Every day I am out and about talking to people in my life here in Abingdon. I always say hello to other cyclists, runners (that always pass me) and then the walkers with and without dogs. I met someone lately who is a potter and we chatted for some time as she worked at a new job. I asked her why this job and not just pottery. She said she spent far too much time on her own and it made me think how a craft centre for crafting artisans usually alone could share workspace and thereby gain the interaction they really need beyond and within their own craft arena. Hannah now shares my workspace and makes woodworking work in a small area of about 3 metres by 3 metres (10′ by 10′). In our case she is still training and learning, but much of her work is now less needy of my interjection. We get to spend valuable time together and this provision enables her to set up shop in a way that his increased interaction with others. Makes me want to buy a building for mixed media crafting artisans working with hand methods. An application based body if you like.
The vlog this week was about the closing of seasons and then the opening of others. How they affect us when we go with the one thing that we seem unable to change except , as is proved, by the negative impact our greed has played on it. Thankful we have to accept seasons and all that they bring. Whether its nature or our choices to change things, they all have a dramatic affect on our wellbeing, but along the way we need to help others achieve their own wholeness and that often happens not so much in big things but small and friendly things we can input and make happen.
Anyway, take a look at the vlog and suggest it to others if you like it. I must say, I m loving it!
