As I sit down to write this, the words halt in my throat. It's been a year, hasn't it? There's no doubt that 2020 will forever be imprinted upon our hearts + minds. Each of us has been altered by its strife, hardship + grief. And yet… in some miraculous way, the light still finds its way in.
That is the wisdom and wonder of this life. Each of us has the capacity to experience joy + grief simultaneously, in a single breath, in a single moment. Time will never stand still, and beauty + joy will forever be hardship's most enduring companions.
As the long days of summer begin to wane, we are called to the water’s edge, where the elements converge + the water swallows the sky. Here, in this liminal space, our spirits cleave tighter to the magic hour, which holds us captive as the sun paints the earth in hues of gold + copper.
Perhaps, now is the perfect time to spread our arms wide, reaching together towards the sun. Perhaps now is the time to gather all the light we can hold within us.
Sending light + love…
