The days seem to be getting shorter quickly. It is easily dark by the time I put the toddler in bed in the evening, and the sun is often still not up before he is. I am finishing up the sleeves on my sweater (yes, finally!), but keep finding myself distracted by the thought that it is time to knit mittens again. There is a lot humming along behind the scenes around here these days; some of it wonderful, some of it challenging.
All of it is life, of course, in the way that it shows up at your door unannounced and wants things from you. Flexibility. Grace. The ability to make the changes that allow you to rise to the proverbial occasion and be your best self in spite of you know, your other self. All of which you are theoretically capable of. It's just that you were busy doing other stuff, right?
All of this is to say that there is a lot on my mind these days, but that I am mostly glad to find it there.
