A rainy wash wednesday here...
we are grateful for the much needed rain
despite the laundry that will not get dried today.
Sweet gardenmama came close to a revolt, I suspect, when she announced that she was ending Wash Wednesday. So good of her to listen to the masses and bring it back. It seems a lot of us like to share our laundry. One of the things I treasure about Wash Wednesday is being able to see that many share my view of the sacredness of simple acts...like hanging laundry.
When I posted hanging laundry as a sacred act almost a year ago when so wabi sabi was just a hatchling (last Saturday was so wabi sabi's first birthday) I was not sure who would really understand what I was trying to share. But now it seems like I'm in very good company. After a year of blogging my life, I have finally shed all inhibitions at sharing how I weave spirituality into my everyday life, and I am grateful to have found a tribe who 'gets it'. So thank you for all you have given me this year!
I am a week behind announcing that the summer edition of Rhythm of the Home launched June 1st, and I am honored to have an article called 'Clothesline Meditation' featured. If you are looking for simple ways to weave sacredness into your everyday life, you might find some of the meditation suggestions I offer helpful. I try to incorporate mindful breaths, a little qigong, and prayers of gratitude throughout my day as I do all kinds of mundane activities from washing dishes to working in the garden to sweeping the floor. It keeps me connected and grounded and keeps the chi flowing.
And I am very excited to announce that we are offering a free on-line workshop called Mindful Mothering over at Threading Light which will begin June, 21st. Sign ups start now! I hope you will consider joining us and spend a week discovering what Mindful Mothering means to you. We will be offering daily meditation suggestions, ways to incorporate mindful practices into your daily life, and a lot of encouragement too. Lisa and I can't wait!
