There is also a curious aspect I hadn’t thought of – that of writing facing the front of the house again. Our bedroom faces south, to the back garden – I am now adjacent to the north-facing window looking out onto the front garden. And, suddenly, there is a strange mental shift to being part of our village facing the front rather than the back.Notebook, Lydia Crow, 7th January 2023
As I mentioned a few days ago, I’m currently managing a tracking journal. There are twenty-one actions I’ve been tracking since early September, and I’m really pleased with my progress. Though not perfect (which I wasn’t expecting, especially given current circumstances), I feel my pencils reflect the measure of my success.
At the moment, I am keeping a form of tracking journal – I’m sure I’ll explain more over the coming weeks – and, if I leave it out on my desk and Auri sneaks into my room, I sometimes come back to find a little hand has used my fountain pen to carefully make a mark, and then coloured it in, just like I do.
