Testing the water...

Ah, me.  Absent again.  It has been a rough winter, with two kids and two adults seemingly cycling from one illness to the next.  I've felt closed off.  Constricted.  All about the putting out of the fires and not about the savoring the bits of life.  It's a vicious circle - as I've pulled in, I can feel my self-talk gremlins speaking up.  You've got nothing to write about...  nothing to talk about...  nothing to do but complain...

And so I don't write, and I don't get to feel creative, and the tides pull me under one more time.

This needs to change.  Daniel is almost out of school for the summer.  I want this to be a summer of fun, for me and all three of my boys.

sometimes pulling in is just so necessary. we all have these times where we need to cocoon and regroup. go gently..xo

It can be so hard to be in that space, yet know that it is space we all fall into. Know though that words do live inside of you and sometimes they just take some nurturing to release them. Holding your hand as you stand in this space.
