“Love is the only sane and satisfactory answer to the problem of human existence.”—Erich Fromm

It’s a big week over here (My “baby” brother is getting married! My family is here! My relatives are en route! My friends are coming!), and in order to fully soak in the enormity of it all, I’m trying my best to stay present & grateful & grounded & calm (without stressing that I’m not present enough or grateful enough or calm enough….make sense?). Just breathe. Savor. Enjoy.

I think/hope we’ve reached the really fun part of the week, where it’s all about picking people up and showing newcomers our town and gathering for big, waterside reunions—an eclectic melange  of people from our past (our entire lives, really) who mean so much to us and have flown so far to join in on the celebrations. It’s utterly surreal. It’s great. Life is good.

Good, Better, Best

Good, Better, Best

Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror. 
But you are the eternity and you are the mirror.

Pickathon was beautiful, magical, fun, just awesome. I loved it.

I hope to compile some thoughts about it soon. For now, though, I’m just easing back into life outside of the those dusty, friendly, music-filled woods.  So bear with me, please:)

I hope you all had wonderful weekends, too.
