Sometimes you think of someone you haven’t thought about in a while, and you have a yen to talk to them. You pick up the phone, or send an email. Maybe there’s nothing really significant to say, or maybe you have news, or maybe it’s just an intuition that you want to connect.
That’s how I felt today when I thought about putting some words here in my blog. I just missed it here. I missed you. So I put my hands on the keyboard, and here I am.
The summer is passing, and I’ve been enjoying a personal retreat at a time of transition. It’s been many things — comforting, dramatic, healing, restorative, mundane, treasured, productive, frustrating, revealing…I have many more descriptors, all of which hold meaning.
But my writing today is not about any one word, or any one meaning. It is about this moment, this moment of missing being here and wishing to say hello. Perhaps I am dusting off the keyboard and preparing for a more consistent return; perhaps I’m just feeling a warm breeze of summer and wishing to share it with you.
I’d love it if you’d write back! Let me know you’re here — whether with a word, a whole comment, or something from your imagination.
