goodbye, May. hello, June!

No comments

Even when I feel life has been taken over by the mundane and the just-getting-by and I’ve had to put aside so many things that bring me joy (this blog included) to make space for other priorities, it’s rewarding to reflect on a month and find that there were pockets of good stuff. It wasn’t all about work (even though my mind was certainly focused on that)  and memories were made. Even the seemingly mundane has meaning — if we just take the time to recognize. And, for that, I am grateful.


“Most adults claim not to believe in magic, but Klara knows better. Why else would anyone play at permanence–fall in love, have children, buy a house–in the face of all evidence there’s no such thing?”
― Chloe Benjamin, The Immortalists
