To my faithful readers,
I am going to break from blogging for the summer. I need to go quiet for a few months. Summer, of all the seasons, should feel slow and languorous. I want to give myself fully and freely to my kids, to this season.
Also, my mind needs to rest. I have shared a lot of words and thoughts here in the last nine months. Many conversations have ensued–on Facebook, in person, and in the comments. I look forward to resuming that writing and conversing in September.
I need to take some time now, though, to germinate rather than produce. I want to turn my mental energy back to reading and thinking for awhile.
As I get busy germinating, I invite you to send along book recommendations and ideas for future blog posts, if you have any. Let’s keep talking but at a more summer-y pace.
Sunscreen, bug spray, sand.
Long evenings, lemonade, scents.
Take a deep breath. Feel the air.
Help! Mom is in charge.
Find a soft rhythm without
daily school routines.
Plants dripping with fruit,
Fresh, bright colored vegetables,
What could be better?
