When I finally started to feel drowsy I put on my meditation/hypnosis app. It was talking about imagining a feather… any feather… any size, and as I would breathe in and breathe out, it would rise and fall. Of all the feathers I could imagine, I imagined turkey feathers. When I was a kid we raised turkeys as an “experience”. I remember my dad saving the turkey feathers and coloring the ends black to use for Cub Scouts. Imagining a big turkey feather with the end colored black, as I breathed in and out, was strangely comforting.
I am a conservative, slightly old-fashioned crazy girl. I love to read, write, sew, scrapbook, cook, bake, do crafts, enjoy nature, take my car off-roading, ride my bike, and just stay busy.
