Feeling ready to hatch. Finishing up things for the show*. Entering my last week of this blog. Looking forward to a long weekend away with my sister, free from my everyday responsibilities and full of the silliness that usually ensues when we're together. Knowing, however, that I'll be ready to come back at the end of it. Thinking about swimming in my favorite river, about discovering wildflowers in the gorge, about berry season, about gin and tonics on the porch. Imagining life once my kids are out of school, contemplating having them never return. Feeling grateful. Trying to live life as slow as possible during a busy time.
* the opening is may 4th from 7-10 at doe for those of you who are asking.
