Gearing Up for Summer
For us that means heading back to Maine to our wonderful little house on the island. I always look forward to returning and the ritual of opening the house and settling back in to our life there. The smell of sweetgrass, peonies, and lilacs. We have a wonderful community of friends and family. As much as I look forward to returning, this summer I have decided to take a little extra time before I go East. My husband will leave in a few days to fly back with our dog. I am going to stay in California for a few weeks for some much needed solitude. A few weeks of nothing to do but take care of my own well being. Days with nothing but my own company and my own rhythm.
A few weeks of painting, creating, exploring, and playing.
Time to just sit with my thoughts.
And time to just breathe.
I am still looking forward to going to Maine and having an awesome time. Just a little bit later this year.
