gratitude monday 7/14

I am up. I am awake. Early Monday morning.

I had a wonderful weekend. Lots of activity. Friends. Witchsters. Family. Lots of life happening. I am grateful.

Rowan’s brilliant help—my pa’u is printed! It looks just lovely. An afternoon in the garden prepping and block printing 4.5 yards of muslin.

Then an evening in Rowan’s kitchen with Melissa and Ladybug and Kismet and laughter and bonding.

I’m a barely tamed hippie, sage, seasoned, sarcastic (not all the time any more, but still). I’m a mom, a daughter, sister, a neighbor, and a friend. I’ve been on this meandering journey — like you, probably — seeking a better connection to and experience of peace, harmony, and fun in every bit of life. I’m single, quite good at it, and mostly love it. I’m here for the conversations I get to have with you, which these days center on exploring the mystery and beauty of life, work, health, aging, and creative expression.
