Thank you for all your comments on yesterday’s post … I replied to many of you about how much I love winter’s bare branches and the shadows they cast. Winter has a stark beauty that took me years to appreciate.
Somewhat switching gears … I took the photo above this afternoon. These two cherry trees are directly opposite the entrance to my neighborhood. They bloom in February. Yes BLOOM. and y’all – there are buds on those branches! I had Holly with me (and it was the end of the walk and she was ready for her cookies) so I couldn’t really get up close to show you. But I’m going to share a photo of those trees every Friday this month. Nothing says Hope like Spring. and of course blue skies and warmer temperatures are a huge help.
January was a tough month for a host of reasons. I’m glad to say Hello! to a new month. and a new month that starts on a Friday is even better.
Thinking hard about my privilege. I started Layla Saad’s Me and White Supremacy work this morning. I had the privilege of “scheduling” this 28 days of work into February … because it fit nicely into my calendar. I realized this morning what a privilege that was. and then I saw this post on Instagram. and now I’m also thinking hard about my voice.
Grateful for the time and energy to volunteer. I accompanied the knitters from my mom’s community on a field trip to a local yarn shop Wednesday morning. Everyone bought yarn! and everyone was excited about casting on a new project. (I’m a little worried I might’ve encouraged those ladies to bite off more than they’re comfortable with but my mom assures me it’s ok).
Interested to learn more about Enneagrams (and myself). My Friday morning group had its first meeting about The Sacred Enneagram today. If you know what your Enneagram type is I’d love to know! I’m still not sure what mine is …
Fascinated by Leonardo da Vinci. and ever so grateful to my church’s bookgroup for getting me to read the book!
Here’s to a good weekend and a good game.
