I Will Look Different When I Return

I am heading northwards in the morning, for a pre-birthday soak in solitude, a hard reset on my brain via a cedar compost steep, a pilgrimage to various artists' altars, and to sample the culinary fruits of a nuclear-free zone. I hope to return with a quieter mind and the ability to once again draw full, deep breaths -- the better to hit 40 head-on come Monday.

In the meantime, have a loverly Saturday. I'll leave you with Mali and her alfabeto. She is enjoying Spanish immersion greatly and is already wielding her pidgin Spanglish like a bastanada -- though she is irritated that everyone treats her like a muñeca because she's so teeny. So sometimes she still punches them. Working on that.

  1. Enjoy! and happy happy birthday, my friend. I wish we lived closer. I draw great strength from all the ways in which you are able to draw deep, full breaths. I've loved getting to know you better this last year.

  2. Happy Birthday. I loved turning 40-found my 40s intensely liberating.

    BTW-gorgeous, bright, adorable kindergartener you have there.

  3. I love brainy and beautiful girls! Most impressive, and only a month.
