the flowers bend their bright bodies,
and tip their fragrance to the air,
their red stems holding
all that dampness and recklessness
gladly and lightly
~Mary Oliver, Peonies
2. My office space. Clearing it out, cleaning and decluttering, the opportunity to get clear about what I’m doing here and how best to support and inspire that.
3. Books. Oh how I love them. Susannah Conway is doing the most amazing giveaway.
4. Pie. Someone on Facebook this week asked me if I needed an intervention.
5. Eric, the one who makes me pie.
Bonus Joy: Another week with Dexter. His nose is bleeding this morning and I cancelled another trip I had planned because I don’t want to leave him, but he was at my feet playing with his baby ram and oh so happy to go on a walk. Tender and terrible, beautiful and brutal.
