By Dawn Sully Pile | Aug 1, 2022 |

In the northeast we are definitely living more intense “dog days of summer” as we often call the hottest days in July and August. This year, it is pretty much every day!   With the dog days in mind, I thought I’d choose a well that feels easier than some.   Many have to walk…

The Well of Not Knowing: A Beautiful July Reminder

By Dawn Sully Pile | Jul 29, 2022 |

I know this has been shared many times over, but I do not tire of watching and listening and of feeling all that is present in words and music.   What an apt closure to the month of dipping into the Well of Not Knowing and reflection on those two words, “not knowing.”   I…

The Well of Not Knowing: Until the Next Time

By Dawn Sully Pile | Jul 25, 2022 |

Last evening I was sitting in the shade under big maple branches. There was a lovely breeze floating through them, leaves dancing above me.   I was thinking about how to bookmark the writing about this well for now.   Over decades I have bought hundreds of non-fiction books.   I have bought most with…

Friday Musing: What the Sky Is Teaching Me

By Dawn Sully Pile | Jul 22, 2022 |

There are spectacularly gorgeous patterns of all kinds in our lives. There are also the ones that want keep us tethered, that keep us going back even when it is time to let them go. When I am in a place of not knowing, the pattern of going to the same ways, places, resources or…

By Dawn Sully Pile | Jul 19, 2022 |

This week, Tuesday is the new Monday for my blog, one that is a bit random. Yesterday began with not knowing, which in the whole scheme of things was minor. It was the first time in visits to dentists since childhood that I was anxious. There were definite unknowns about the potential risks of the…

Friday Musing: A Companion to Not Knowing

By Dawn Sully Pile | Jul 15, 2022 |

I am looking out my living room window to the clear sky, clear outlines of the thousands of leaves on the big tree, clear curvy posts on the little balcony railing and thinking about how astoundingly clear I feel in this space.   At the park where I often walk there is a path one…

The Well of Not Knowing: Recognizing Early Influences

By Dawn Sully Pile | Jul 11, 2022 |

Intro   In a light-hearted spirit, I continue to discover there is so much to this topic that I “don’t know” quite how to sort it out myself. I know the well is exactly the place to be. I can dip and let it provide me with perspectives and musings that do not have to…

Friday Musing

By Dawn Sully Pile | Jul 8, 2022 |

Several weeks ago now, returning a lampshade, I was taken with the overhead light display in the store, every inch of the ceiling holding a different fixture. While the owner processed my return I stood looking at  the hundreds of fixtures, fascinated. I was taken with how completely different they were and wondered how I…

The Well of Not Knowing

By Dawn Sully Pile | Jul 4, 2022 |

Not too long before March 2020, I was browsing a local bookstore, a favorite haunt. Every so often it feels a book pushes itself a bit off the shelf so I do not miss it. This also happens at home with books I have not yet read. They seem to choose the right time to…

Forever Lights of Friends

By Dawn Sully Pile | Jul 1, 2022 |

Yesterday I learned of the passing of a beloved colleague and friend of many years, though it has been some time since we were together. Early onset of Alzheimer’s altered what her life would have otherwise been for the past decade or so. I do not even know exactly how many years; I know it…
