where i stand . early july 2010
as afternoon began to fade toward evening, the thoughts tumbled a bit after two conversations with friends. because ellie was still napping, i came to my laptop and clicked to my email and read the nicest words about me and my work from someone who doesn't even really know me and then i felt tears tap the back of my eyeballs.
because this is what i know: even when life is full of the "oh my goodness things are crazy around here" kind of stuff, it is full of so much beauty.
but the only way i can see the beauty is if i give myself the space to see myself.
and then some words began to rush together in my mind, so i turned on the microphone to catch them (for you...for me).
