Marrakech: and a tale of the things you don't know and I can't explain

Dear friends,

There is so much I want to tell you but I'm not sure how to explain it.  So I'll just give you my list.

  • I have tried and failed at something I wanted.  I am now trying again.  Keep your fingers crossed for me.
  • I am continuing something that I started last Spring but have not yet talked about here. It's something I'm proud of.
  • Someone I love is no longer the same.  I wonder if he is changed forever.
  • I have just started something new.  It's very small and very big at the same time.    
  • A {maybe} exciting opportunity has just come my way.  I said yes.
  • People I was depending on canceled.  Suddenly.  
  • Other people I was depending on came through.  With their hearts and their hands in a way I won't soon forget.
  • I am worried about someone important leaving.  I am already in mourning.
  • I am getting fat.  I am losing my hair {really}. 


  • I am learning.  A lot.
  • I am taking risks.  Many.
  • I am trying to breathe.  Deeply.  

I am asleep somehow.  But I am also more awake than ever.

Awake and asleep

Yes, it all feels new somehow.  It all feels new.
