Waiting Amidst Lovely Chaos – ROW80 Update, 5/26/13

Curious? Click here!

Yes, that is a reference to the brand-new, Kristen Lamb inspired, header up top there – but it’s more than that.

It defines my life– a lovely and passionate chaos, that, like wilderness, has a structure and sense that escape those who look too quickly, or assume too much.

For me, these last days, it has meant less focus, and more simply being:

  • I’ve watched several episodes of Enterprise, and discovered the joys of Amazon Prime HD on my Kindle.

  • I’ve added a great many programs to my watch list.

  • I’ve added a second suit to my Spider Solitaire app. Very challenging.

  • I’ve hung out with my family.

  • I’ve done some writing, and some blogging, and some hometending.

I didn’t post an update on Wednesday, or a Thursday’s Treat.

I meant to, but the time slipped away, and was gone, passed in other ways.

I needed a breather, and I had one. As I ease back into a place with a little more structure, I am feeling better and more creative. A little lovely chaos will do that for me, every time.

And I am contemplating the concept of lovely chaos, and feeling ideas surging, merging, and shifting, because of Enterprise….

And now, an accounting of this session:

Lovely chaos….


  1. I’m always so impressed with how much you manage to get done as well as making time for family and watching Enterprise episodes. 😉

    • Kate,

      I’m good at flitting from thing to thing, and at short bursts and tolerating interruptions, and I’m getting less interested in housework just for the sake of appearances. Theses people who live here with me are pretty cool, and i am calling Enterprise research, and wishing I had seen it when it first came out.

Take a chance! Type something in this box, and see what happens! =D
