Share Your World #20

When do you feel most connected with others?
I don’t easily find connection with others. To me, feeling the most connected is based on seeing things in the same way. This is likely what drives me to seek out other artistic people.


What daily habit would you like to introduce to your life?
My life is already filled with daily habits and rituals. I’d like mornings that belong to me. Utter quiet to write in. The only way I can have this kind of morning is to wake at four or some shit, and so I do not. I would if I knew I could sleep in the afternoon, if I knew someone else would field doorbells, calls, and texts, but the world truly does not give a fuck when or if their Joey sleeps. Ever. Yes, it is a conspiracy! How else would you explain it?!


What one mini-little-adventure would you like to have in the coming week?
I think it’d be nice if it were warm and sunny (I cannot believe I just typed that.) so that I could have an epic DoorScursion. It is mid-May and yet I cannot recall when I last felt the sun on my face or felt warm to the bone.


List things or events that changed your Life: It could be as simple as a book or meeting a certain person?
Good gravy. Skipping influential people, books, and music will surely save 50000 words…My ACE score is 7, so maybe we should focus on adulthood…Then we’ll remove the negatives because this post already reads like a pity party…

1. I fell madly in love, which I still think is more like being hit over the head and dragged into a cave, but I cannot deny that it’s the most satisfying delusional experience I’ve ever had.
2. Not getting a job I badly wanted turned out to be one of the best worst things ever.
3. My body finally grew a baby. It turns out I hate growing babies, but I am truly amazed by the baby herself.
4. My body got so good at growing babies that it couldn’t wait to grow another baby, so I got the best surprise ever.
5. I rescued my dog, Sadie, and she rescued me.
6. I got to move home. I didn’t have to die in Georgia. Look at all the pretty trees! And there are squirrels and grasses and corn and ferns and birds and acorns and buckeyes and maple propellers and flowers! It snows and rains and the leaves change colors! And did I mention grass and trees?
7. We bought this house. I love our house.
8. Thanks to Bonnie Blue, my freedom-giving car, I am no longer at the mercy of others and especially not school buses.



Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

Last week was fabulous, and for that, I am so grateful. It was sincerely sexy, tasty, funny, and full of good news. This week Sassy has a concert, Moo has a run, and we will join friends for dinner on Saturday.

    I am with you. I need to feel the sun on my face.I need to feel some warmth on these old bones I also need to get into the habit of going to the gym at least 3 days per week,like I did before the winter set in. You live with some truly lovely trees.

      My trees are the best! Going to the gym sounds awful. There are people there and it’s hot. But then, I guess you don’t mind those things 🙂
      I guess next week it’ll be warm and maybe we’ll get warm, too.

    Really hope you get that bit of space to write in. It’s not easy when you’ve got kids. I can really relate to that struggle to fit everything in.

    I love seeing the four seasons in that gallery, and I really love: “I rescued my dog, Sadie, and she rescued me.” Good dog Sadie.

    hey joey – I wish your blog allow us to view the post in the reader – and I know some folks have the setting set to where we only get part of it – but I sometimes have to skip posts from blogs I love because if I exit the reader it messes up when I am out – if that makes sense –
    anyhow – hint hint….

    oh and I love the photos here – and 2 and 5 we have in common on the list.
    further, do you know what I like about the tone over here at your blog?
    you are grateful.
    you are a grateful person –
    and witty….
    anyhow, have a good day

      I understand, but I prefer it the way it is. No pressure. I wish everyone had email subscription available so I could read at my own pace without the Reader. I visit those who don’t when I have time, and some of those people are my faves, too 🙂

  13. This is wonderful! I can relate to seeking out artistic people. The first writing course I took, I burst out crying when I got back into the car, because I had found my people!

    “I didn’t have to die in Georgia.” Hahaha! My husband said it’d almost be worth never vacationing in Florida again just to never have to go through Georgia again.

    I adore your photo montage of trees throughout the seasons. Perfect. Makes me happy to look at it.

  17. I love all the green, as well. I love your tree photos. Those I take of trees come out really good. I have winter trees, autumn trees, winter trees with snow, some even dominated by the snow. I’ve even done some of a tree while lying on my back on the ground. I’ll have to look. I may have done a tree segment on my photo blog. I’ll have to send you the link, once I find it. Ok, just created a new one at:

  18. Sounds like life is good, Joey. 🙂 I’m gardening, getting ready to camp, working on a medicinal garden for a local museum, read two great books this week and am working on a third with a fourth waiting. Ah, the sun is shining and life is good here too. 🙂
