Existential Examen - Day 6

 The more research I'm doing about become more myself, and less who others think I should be -- even at this late stage in life! -- the more I'm becoming aware of the role creativity plays in this.  Not just for me; for each one of us.

Today, I'm grateful that each and every one of us has innate creativity, which we can choose to express -- or not -- and I am grateful that in choosing to express my particular creativity, I am learning to accept the opinions and perceptions of others as just that -- theirs, owned by them.  Moreover, ve-e-e-r-r-ry slowly, I'm learning that I can't control the perceptions and opinions of others.  

It's mind over matter.  As someone once quipped: "If I don't mind, it doesn't matter!"  😉

Wow, wow, wow! Your Fallen log looks fabulous. I feel like I could reach out and feel the snow and the bark. How about a wee bit of lichen for the natural dyers out there? LOL Well done, Margaret.
