Weekend Wanderings: Quietly Now

After breaking plans to go to Boston, and then breaking more plans to go to Storm King, I had a much-needed quiet weekend. Lots of knitting, some grocery shopping, and the requisite Mad Men episode, and just like that, it was over. I'd hoped that a weekend of rest would settle me a bit, but I'm feeling as unsettled as before. It is, perhaps, a stage, or perhaps just a sign that I need to accept the unsettledness of life again. Either way, I'm grateful to have had it, and grateful that next weekend should be a bit busy again. In the meanwhile, I think I might start taking yoga classes at our library.

In place of tantalizing stories of weekend events, here's a song I've been loving today:

For some reason, it's just exactly the moment I'm looking for.


  1. I've always wanted to go to Storm King...

  2. that's such a good song for this morning. thanks!

    my weekends have been slipping through my fingers. i'm going to try to really savor this coming one.

  3. Danielle - I have a friend at work who went up last weekend and she says it's absolutely wonderful. We'll definitely be making the trip up sometime this fall.

    Allison - Glad you liked the song. I hope you were able to savor your weekend! I also often wonder where the time goes, especially in the summer. Writing it all down helps me remember it, and relive it.
