My Row of Ducks

So it has been with audio editing. I have been learning a new software, and it is a bit slow going for reasons beyond my control. Ahhh..beyond my control. Life lessons. Again.

As such, I’ve been doing the best I can and this week with MindFULL conversations, I am posting my last round of MindFULL Musings. Today’s episode is on favorite podcasts that hold thoughtful knowings for this week of gatherings. Tomorrow’s episode is on music and playlists to bring a new score to the background of the week. Wednesday is about a movie I saw a few Thanksgivings ago, called Joy, that still holds some allure. Thursday has Gentle Reminders for navigating life and Friday ends with a few thoughts on Courageous Conversations.

So, as you gather your ducks and put them in a row for the Holiday season, I hope you’ll find a MindFULL Musing that helps lighten your load.

Happy Holidays everyone.

You can find MindFULL conversations here. Please give a listen, and if you like what you hear, rate, review and share with a friend. Let’s mindfully fill each others’ minds!

MindFULL Musings – Week 2

Well, I made it through the first week of NaPodPoMo, National Podcasters Promotion Month’s November Challenge! Now, I’m on to the second! My challenge is 5 episodes per week for the month of November. That’s alot of episodes, so I have been thinking of ways to frame the challenge so I can stretch, and still reach. I came up with MindFULL Musings – they are mini episodes between 5-10 mins long.

This week’s MindFULL Musings riff off of full length MindFull conversations. I share a story I wrote about my hair for Nancy Sharp’s Guided Autobiography class (Nancy’s MindFULL conversation episode here), I ask Addie to clarify what the heck an NFT is (Addie’s MindFULL conversation episode here), I chat with a stranger I see every day in the park (Strangers on A Plane MindFULL conversation episode here), I get travel packing tips from my friend, Ricki (Inspired by What the Borscht? from Ukraine, my MindFULL conversation with John Yackus here) and I ponder Imposter Syndrome (Cause Mrs. Abramovitz, who is so who she wonderfully is, delighted me. Mrs. Abramovitz’s MindFULL conversation is here).

All episodes continue to challenge my podcasting skills. I am keeping with it though. For as THEY say, (I just heard THEY are a bunch of old Jewish men sitting around a Deli table in Brooklyn) “ya gotta spend an hour a day pursuing your goal”. OK, that’s really from Earl Nightengale. Nontheless, I am doing it.

And… Special Thanks to Judith Cassel-Mamet for teaching me the trick of “clicking here” to a link. Learn more about Judith’s work, here.

Thanks for listening! You can find all of my MindFULL conversations here.

MindFULL Musings all November

Remember the old joke where a tourist is walking in NYC and asks an old man, “How do you get to Carnegie Hall?” He answers, “Pratice. Practice. Practice.”

Well, that’s kind of how I feel when it comes to audio editing. It’s a challenge. So, for the last month, I’ve sat on the fence when the challenge to not only learn to edit, but to upload an episode EVERYDAY for the month of November was posed. The November challenge is called NAPODPOMO (National Podcast Promotion Month). I decided that every day was too much, but instead of uploading an epside 2x a month on MindFULL Mondays, I would stretch myself and set a goal of 5/week – 5 minutes of MindFULL Musings, covering a range of things that fill my mind.

Once again, I strive to learn another piece of editing software. I won’t go into my opinion here about how it’s going, but suffice to say, I’ve learned more than how to edit. Patience, Letting Go, Projection and zipping my lips. I am focusing on what I can do and trusting that it will get easier as the month rolls on.

So, please consider following me and listening. I’d love your feedback. I am learning. And as we all know, we learn better with practice – and with love. At least that is one of the things I’ve learned so far this month.
