Monday started slow
I voted from my couch (this is your gentle reminder to vote)
Mary Oliver guided me back to myself again
I lit a candle and sent lots of love across the miles as I listened to the news
I helped a two year old build a boat and felt like I really had it together as a mama for a little while
I worked on a new collection of jewelry inspired by the magic where the forest meets the sea along the Washington and Oregon coasts
This little girl made my heart grow bigger as I witnessed her joy in the simple moments
I found my way to rest
And I made space for in-person connection and had lunch with a new friend.
As the rain falls and we settle in for a Friday evening, I hope this weekend will be full of time to recharge and have fun and unplug and laugh and read poetry and maybe even go on a date.
May your weekend be full of lightness and ease...
