mental health day

i'm going to take the day off to recover from all that eating and wandering around that happened in vermont. the great news is, i'm working on a new song cycle, i made headway with one of my newer ideas and i got a lot of writing done.

yikes! my birthday is almost here! i have no idea what i'll do to celebrate. probably go to a korean day spa all day and graze. oh, wait. i should do that the day before, and meet up with everyone the following evening. (ah...i LOVE it when a plan comes together...)

the (mostly intangible) presents that i've given myself every day have been full of joy. mostly, they've let to quiet, soul searching moments that have given me a fresh perspective, a lot of insight and closure -- and in the end, i realized that i'd emotionally outgrown so much of what i was wading through. ultimately, the only real choice was to forgive and let go and move on.

as half the year is about to come to a screeching halt, i'm making myself three promises:
  1. to have a drunken tea party at our place -- sooner rather than later
  2. to spar in the ring on a regular basis before the end of the summer
  3. to give myself a beauty day once a week (at least)
oh. and more pictures!
