I’ve been away. I miss writing. I pledge to do it more in the next few months. I need the outlet. Lately my life has been flooded- in a good way- with people and events and the bustle of the summer. Our house seems almost constantly full, I’m always making a big pot of food or trying to quell the laundry/housework monster, the garden is starting to throw vegetables at me, and… I’ve been a little swept up in it all. Recently I’ve been thirsty for a little time to call my own, and writing always served to loosen that hinge just a little, allowing me some time to remember what it’s all about… I think there’s been so much on my mind that whenever I start to think about sitting down to write, the words start to overwhelm me and I can’t even begin. But, as with most of the good things in my life, it starts somewhere simple.
So for today, just a simple little peek into what makes me smile.
