friday | fodder+folly

follies of the week:
-creatively constructing excuses to stop my creativity
-mind-numbing, brain-scattering internet hum-drums
-not sticking to the plan
-letting November fly by
-avoiding things both big and small

fodder for the soul:
-my dog curled up on the couch next to me as I write
-waking up to a sweet cat cleaning my face
-holding hands with the youngest
-creativity despite my excuses to do otherwise
-the oldest sharing his experience at the museum of tolerance
-watching my middle work extra hard on the violin

provender for the days ahead:
-a very autumn-like weekend in Los Angeles
-getting things done!
-listening to the wind blow through the trees and rattle the eaves
-finding quiet moments to be still and thankful
This is a friday series called fodder+folly. You are welcome to write along if you want, just leave a comment with your blog address if you decide to write one and I will be sure to come say hello. Would love if you "wrote along!" xxoo


  1. Good stuff there. I should spend some time thinking about this, but off the top of my head I'd say one folly was spending too much time lying down with a back spasm (so it wasn't really my fault). My fodder was a really, really good book to read while I was lying down (Wild, by Cheryl Strayed). My provender for the days ahead - focus on preparing for Thanksgiving, which is also my husband's 60th birthday!

    Have a lovely weekend!

  2. My November is flying by too … the year is almost over and it's speeding up on the downhill slope to the finish.
    I love how you creatively constructed excuses to stop your creativity … that's still very creative … so it must count for something.

  3. Lovely to read this Rebecca. I found November went too fast too, with not enough accomplished. I am trying to do better. I like to hold hands with my littlest boy too. So sweet.


hello there! I love it so when you leave a bit of a note to let me know how you are and what you are thinking. I always love to hear about the things inspiring you and moving you through your day.
