We’re in the midst of it. It started last month, and I expect it will peak in July.
I laugh easier and louder, I smile more. I have a lightness within that doesn’t get darkened by much, and only goes out intermittently, sure to be brightened by day’s end.
All of this is to say, I’m quite happy. I know nothing lasts forever, but that’s the beauty of life, isn’t it? The ebbs and flows, the modulations, the patterns, appreciating the lows and the highs and everything in between.
Here, a super cheesy shot of me when I was in a similar place in Weissensee, Germany:
But let’s bring things back to the present.
Look! How can I feel anything but fantastic when it’s walking-barefoot-in-the-river weather!?
I’m not sure I’ve ever been as excited about the future as I have been lately. I’m eager for things to come and possibility and love multiplied, community and growth and chances to get to know myself better.
Good things: freelance writing! Summer plans! Dog love! Garden and frequent friendly hangouts! Blog boosts! Being in love with my husband! Possibility!
P.S. I decided to discontinue the A to Z Challenge. I wasn’t that into it, and chose to let myself off the hook because I put myself under oh-so-much pressure! Now I can go back to writing what I want, when I want, and I won’t be pigeon-holed by making sure a day’s topic matches up with a darn letter. Wahoo!
Night falls like people into love. We generate our own light to compensate for the lack of light from above.
And i’ve got myself a new mantra
it says: “don’t forget to have a good time”
don’t let the sellers of stuff
to rob you of your grace
love is all over the place
there’s nothing wrong with your face
love is all over the place.
