I had a lovely mostly-at-home week between Christmas and New Year's, with a wonderful, alternately intense and mellow visit from [livejournal.com profile] lediva, as well as time with the usual suspects [livejournal.com profile] bard_bloom and [livejournal.com profile] projectmothra, and a New Year's Eve visit from Trish (whose LJ handle I seem to have forgotten) and her son. The visit from a sniffly, stuffy headcold is less wonderful, but tolerable.

I probably went on more of a vacation from the rest of life than I probably should have, so today I'm scrambling to get everything back under its usual level of control, possibly not in the most sensible order. My calendar shall be filled in correctly with all the things I have promised to people, everything that needs to get mailed and written will get mailed and written, and I will sit down and work through the list of things that need to get done.

I'm not making resolutions per se. But I do have a focus that I'd like to use as a touchpoint this year: being more of myself. I would like to remember to do more of the things that manifest who I am and satisfy me, and less of trying to be other people, likely not as well as they manage to be themselves. Sometimes I get the feeling that I used to be interesting, but that I'm not anymore, and I'd like to be in that space less often.

Doing this meme made me realize two things:
1) 2010 was an inexplicably long year, mentally. I feel like some of this stuff was way more than a year ago.

2) I really haven't been using LJ very much this year, a few times a month at most. I should really get back to it. Twitter is just such an entirely different thought process.

In any case, first sentence for first post of the month for each month in 2010. Some from locked posts.

Ten years ago on New Year's Eve, I was at Rowe Camp up in the Berkshires with [info]bard_bloom and a bunch of hippies and Buddhists, helping to lead a ritual that Margo Adler had to abandon at the last minute because NPR wanted her in the city to report in case Y2K exploded.

Voting has begun for the Rose and Bay Award, a new award honoring crowdfunded projects.

I'm planning to do another little order of Crowdsource Tarot decks in preparation for Morphicon, sometime this week.

This is a test of lj posting via Droid.

My bees seem to be mostly avoiding doing much with the honey supers, and the last few days way too many of them were hanging about outside the hive for my liking, so I went in today and replaced a frame of capped honey from the edge of the deep box with a frame of drawn but empty comb in the center.

Kid playing multiple players of a more-or-less mechanistic board game by himself. Perfectly reasonable, or rather odd?

I have this little black dress.

Apparently this mini-vacation from dealing with random crap and being a housewife consists of dealing with random crap and being a housewife in another household. :P

I just contacted my first birth client via the Doula Project, to find out that she had an emergency C-section two days ago and didn't choose to call us for support.

There are many many things I do not miss about the corporate world, but I have to admit that I miss the large holiday parties and the vendor swag.
