Where to begin… by reflecting

We have been gone for 2 weeks, traveling to the verdant valleys of Vermont and Coastal Maine.  It was lush and luscious, drinking in the green and being totally present to play with my little guy and (big guy), wandering the rivers, lakes and playgrounds without a care in the world.  Now that we are home our world has transformed too, from desert dry to jungle garden green.  I am so happy to be home, feeling like this is the start of a new year, fresh and ready to begin again….but with this renewed energy just don’t know where to start…shall I prune the tomatoes, make pesto, pay the bills, write my upcoming class curriculum, …….or just finish that book I started on vacation? Well, those decisions can wait till tomorrow.  For now, just a glimpse of the places we went and the fun we had so I can savor the beauty we were blessed by and remember to savor the sweet slowness of life when you are simply taking in all in.
