Well, hello there. I’ve missed you. And this space. Though the break has been good…some time to allow myself to carry on free of rules and expectations (that I set upon myself). And, unlike my last post (which took me a while to allow), this post today has come spontaneously. I haven’t been thinking carefully about my return to this space, other than to consider waiting till the beginning of August, maybe September. But just now…well, I feel like I want to be here, with you. And so here I am.
I was out in the garden a bit ago. I wrote last summer about allowing myself to play (and plant) freely in the garden. That’s what happened again this year. There are a few tomato plants, jalapeno, basil, onions. But mostly, you guessed it…flowers. Planted willy nilly (I share about that approach here). Just the other day, the zinnia appeared. And then the cosmos. The sunflowers aren’t blooming, but their stalks are growing strong. Things might need a little thinning. Or not. For now, things are thick with growth. Green, so green. And the pops of color have definitely arrived. Which makes me happy.
And so, as I pop in to say hello, I hope there are things making you happy in your world too. Maybe, like me, you have flowers growing. Or some zucchini. Maybe there’s a delicious latte in your hands. Maybe you’ve enjoyed the hug of a dear one. Or maybe a stranger smiled at you as you sidled down the grocery store aisle. I hope there’s something.
Yes, there must be.
Sending a little love your way, m
