2021 ~ The Un-nameable Year

I don’t know what to say about 2021.

A year full of change,

a year spent in the woods,

the year the nest started to empty,

one daughter packed off to Lawrence,

one daughter packed off to college,

one daughter married,


friendships (old and new),

countless trips between here and Durham,

Eastern Seaboard Road Trip,

fancy forest picnics,

the building of wild garden beds,

continued waterfall hikes and visits to St. George,

walks in Savannah,

lazy summer days with long swims in the lake,

the year we brought the magnolias front and center,

a wonderful summer trip to visit family and friends across the midwest region,

wild, foraged mushrooms simmering in butter in the cast iron pan,

exotic, peaceful things growing in the Mary,

art being made in the workshop,

a year with many hours spent on the yoga mat, my heart surging forward, a growing readiness and hunger for flexibility, synchronicity, quiet and clarity.
