Time Goes By

Summer escapes
I come back to myself each August
Birthday time, and always a time of big change
and reflection.

and ice cream, of course.

Waking up in a new place

Well, a lot can change. 
I have neglected this blog and most of my personal life
for 1 year and 8 months for a company that has
moved on and over and down without me. 

Now I woke up from the someone else's startup--
fever dream, a bit wiser, a bit heartbroken and 
very motivated to start again 
and create something new
something dynamic
with the best people I know. 

Here we go... 
Oh and PS we have moved and are rebuilding

A new job,
so many surprising things. 
Rediscovering myself, 
finding out that there is still 
so much to celebrate 
so many adventures to be had. 
It really is unlocking a new Odyssey

New Kingdoms

I am starting over in almost every way.
new adventures and ideas and strategies
swirling around me.

confusing, overwhelming
and yes exciting.

Time to declare dominion.

Dreamy end of summer skies
thoughts turning to what comes next
mad rushing to the end of another year
last quarter excitement and trepidation
but for now- a quiet pause

in my dreams

my dream land
looks and sounds and feels like this.
bamboo chimes, waves and dappled sunlight
beads of water dripping down a cool beverage
with bare feet and a full heart.

The Big Show

Sometimes you just look up
and there it is!
the big show going on around us
everyday beauty that can just
knock your socks off.

The Fantastic Four

It's all about family.
Makes all the difference
in happy and sad times
I wish I could have
been there this weekend
to say goodbye and
to just love them all in person.

I am so grateful
so many were there
to make it easier.

he truly is my BFF
and loves me just the way I am
though of course
more treats would be appreciated

savoring summer

It's busy, and yes, I have a new restaurant.
But I will take a few moments each day
to savor the sweet, sour, special joyful moments of summer.
Sugar, bright and yellow, with a touch of something more
