Sparks from a summer campfire.
Thank you so, so much for such beautiful, kind, shining responses to my last post. They made me a bit weepy and caused my heart to overflow with gratitude and love. I am so blessed to know such an incredible group of people!
It's been a busy week, as I've been preparing to move back to campus in just a few days. Classes begin on Monday, and then begins a landslide of deadlines, research, sleep deprivation, and general intensity. While I'm looking forward to cooler nights and the trees put on their annual fiery display, I will miss so much about summer: bare feet, glowing skin kissed by the sun, diving into a cool swimming pool, the hum of cicadas and katydids in the warm night, and regular blogging.
Last winter I did my best to keep up My Peacetree in the midst of my academic year, but time flies so quickly when there are endless papers to write and articles to read that my posts were sparse. I must be honest with myself and see that the possibility of this happening again is not unrealistic.
I love so much about this space: the presence of beautiful, creative, kind people; discovery, exploration, and growth in so many spheres; a place to share my artistic journey and to hear from others on the same path. I love connecting, creating, dreaming, photographing, musing, celebrating, overcoming, learning, and stretching. I love this space so dearly, just as I love each and every one of you who help to make this incredible community.
While the next few months seem daunting at the moment, I will do my best to find moments here and there to share all that's happening in my world. I have a few posts already written, and if you are interested in doing a guest post, I'd love to hear your ideas! You can contact me here or send me an email at mypeacetree2 (at) gmail (dot) com. Woohoo!
Oh yes, and happy Friday! What deliciousness are you up to this weekend?
