Christmas Time is Here

I’m pretty much guaranteed to be happy whenever I see a new post from Josepha — I simply think she is super-smart and also a very aware and sensitive person towards the people around her:

What are you particularly grateful for?

Happy Thanksgiving! | Shedding Light (josepha.blog)

Too many things to mention, but obviously:

  1. Josepha
  2. Matt (Mullenweg)
  3. The WordPress community
  4. In particular (and also beyond the WP community): people who are not only open to collaboration, but even seek out to collaborate on projects … and here I mean particularly the willingness to engage in work with potential for rewards other the plain and simply monetary / financial interests. Granted, this requires a great deal of experience, wisdom, insight and such… so when it does show up, I do acknowledge what a great treasure and wonderful thing it is.
  5. These are just a few things I wish to mention here. There are also many more things I am also grateful for — for example: Holly Cole.

Those we rely on to support our decision making, to help us do a better job at work, to answer our technical questions, to share our knowledge of a new innovation on a project – all of these circles have shrunk

Keywords: knowledge , resilience , adaptability , connections , engagement , knowledge management , mindset

Our diversity of accessible knowledge we trust – that has lessened.

Not deliberately, but gradually and unknowingly – I feel I am poorer.

I’d bet most of us work in jobs that are inherently about our knowledge and experiences. Gaining more knowledge and experience leads us to more fulfilling work, maybe promotions, maybe different roles – a sense of purpose and worth. Sharing these with others for their benefit and the benefit of their work often gives us joy. Now the source of those gains is smaller, now our capacity to share is reduced are we still growing and developing as we want to?

I am often attracted to the people who have held the key to my expansion

Keywords: {0}

This is the first separation where I don’t feel wronged by another person. In fact, I am wondering about the magic that exists in this space. It’s just, melancholy. With a feeling of having been seen, heard, loved and accepted in your fullness. It invokes a sense of respect for another, and a sense of surrender in oneself. That’s a blessing to me.

I’ll keep looking and try to decide

Keywords: design , weaving , colour combinations in weaving , echo and iris , echo weave

But I can’t decide what colours I want in the warp! I have a bunch of bright colours and there are a million combinations. I have narrowed down to three warps. Help me choose! Below I show examples of them with a variety of different possible wefts. Once I get a warp, I can play with all of them, plus combinations of them for double weave.
