As a replacement for denying myself during the 40 Days of Lent, I intend to add something: some personal quiet time for reflection. It may mean walking by myself, or some reflecting that results in clearing up 'paper clutter', or something I will discover along the way.
On the first day of Lent, a one hour walk through the hills of my neighborhood, in 55 deg temp, did more to improve my blood pressure than the same amount of time at the indoor track.
Lenten Reflection 1.)
In my deepest self, my soul, I'm an Introvert AND I haven't been giving myself quality personal alone time.

I have to confess. I'm getting a little long winded on Facebook and perhaps it isn't the right place to post thoughts other than 'status updates.' A lot of factors may be causing me to think a little deeper about 'things,' but, waiting for the birth of a Granddaughter, Cassidy Rayne, due on March 9th, has got to be near the top of the list.
So, I'm intending a slight shift in the focus of my notes here. Up to now, this blog has been a kind of Commonplace Book where I collect the images, words and ideas that, for some reason, feel 'congruent' at the moment. I'm intending to shift the focus slightly to more clearly make this a sort of Values Will. No, except for the irregular heart rhythm that is well managed, now, I'm in good health. But, I do want to state what I've come to value and why they are important to me.
So, I hope you will stay tuned and take time to leave a word or two of your thoughts. One value that I'm learning is important, is to always be open to new perspectives. As Dirty Harry once said to a bad guy, "A Man's got to know his limitations". I may need you to remind me to 'lighten up.'
