Things I have noticed #1

The longer I travel the journey of life, the more I notice that things do not stay the same. But right now I am finding that the rate of change is increasing; there are more and more things about which I do not feel the same as I did, say, two, three or five years ago.

Some are significant because they are huge shifts in my thinking or my outlook; some are significant because they occupy a small but regular part in my daily life.

Things I have noticed which are changing include:

1. I cannot write with music on in the background.

2. I cannot get the hang of A Game of Thrones.

3. I find a great deal of inspiration in the Divine Feminine¹.

4. I am becoming a vegan.

5. I am becoming more and more fascinated by the historical Jesus.

6. I am losing my taste for coffee.

7. I sometimes find it difficult to hold onto my concept of the God of the Christian faith². 

8. I find it hard to listen to loud music for more than a few minutes at a time.

9. I get excited by the Spring leaves on trees.

10. I feel that I own far more things than I need.

¹ Brigid and the Old Testament figure of Wisdom are currently very important to me.
² I don't know why this is happening. It worries me.

I think that ten items will do for now, though there are more!


  1. Sounds similar in a way in the journey that I have been through over the last twenty years, although I am still enjoying coffee. Beliefs and wants change over time and what we think is rigid turns out to be fluid. Enjoy the change!

    1. Hi fredspoon/Phil! Thanks for your comment. I didn't know you followed my blog, but thanks for doing so! (You may be the only person who does!) Thanks for what you said: glad to know I'm not the only one on such a journey! (And glad that you still enjoy a nice cuff of cot hoppee!)
