I have been gone from the blogosphere for so long, I hardly know where to begin with this post. I can't yet fully articulate all of the changes that have been happening for me. These changes have a lot to do with why I haven't been blogging (or writing at all), but the other reason is simply that I've been extraordinarily busy.
Now, the semester is over, YouthFest (the sort-of major event I coordinated) is over, and I can ease back into my inner life, the part of myself that must be tended for anything to get written. Even as I write this, the words feel awkward; I've gotten rusty.
There is so much I want to share and explore in writing, but I have to begin where I am, in this tongue-tied place. All I can say is that everything has been expanding, opening up, becoming new. I guess you could call it a rebirth, and now I'm toddling into a new world. Great joy, passion, and inspiration light the way, even as I feel physically exhausted, emotionally stretched. I'm grateful for the opportunity I now have to putter around my house and garden and soul. To play with words again. To bake bread. To start taking my walks (and runs) again. And to reconnect with my blogging friends. I've missed you.
