Here we are, together again, with October all around. Can you believe it? Could there be a better time and place than this venue of autumn with its flinging of golden confetti in which to celebrate our connection with each other again?
I love how, in fall, morning fog covers the landscape in mystery, how its veil reveals just a glimpse. It zings my heart every morning that I see a shroud of fog beyond my windows as darkness turns to dawn. The same view is there, as there is every morning, but now it’s draped in a perspective completely new. Something of a metaphor, it seems. We may only see an outline of what’s ahead, this beautiful landscape before us. But, though it may be foggy and hard to define, it’s still fully there, waiting for us to go to it, experience it, capture it, and live it.
My time away from the regular work of planning, producing, and publishing content on the blog and social media has been so beautiful, so necessary for health, for growth, for perspective. Quieting the outward noise and focusing inward. Experiencing life and listening to my own creative influence has been restorative, an infusion of energy that has felt like life itself. Here is where I find clarity and peace. Where I find inspiration. Where the ideas flow.
Then, at the end of rest, it’s good to come back. Back to the beauty of creating. To the beauty of words. To the beauty of connection. Back to you.
I’m excited to be alive right now. To be a creative right now. To be living well in beauty, humbled by its strength, nurtured by its grace. To understand what that is; to have no idea, ever a student of things deeper than I.
I have more for you, loves, but today, I just wanted to say hello.
It’s good to be back.
Here, I write on living well. Where tasteful design and simple living meet in an inspired, organic way.
