i’ve written quite a bit about my three “big events” this past fall. my michigan trip that included my class reunion, my own retreat in the mountains, and the unfurl reunion of last year’s unearth retreat. my “anticipations”, as i was calling them in september. one by one, they came and they went and each turned out in it’s own way to be a beautiful experience.
so now they are part of the past. i no longer have them to anticipate. i was thinking about my reaction to this fact and i realized that, no, i’m not sorry they are over because now i OWN these experiences. they are part of me. they are woven into the fabric that makes up my life. (i’m writing a poem about that that i will share soon.) the reality of having them inside is better than the anticipation.
they each involved connections and relationships that have been deepened. and memories that i can still easily recall. and, thank goodness, they are all well-documented with photos!
i do have one more fun event this weekend with the seaside soiree, and of course the holidays, but after that, my life will be somewhat “event-less”, at least for a while. it’s ok. i can hole up in my new little studio and soak it all in. i'm a very, very lucky girl.
thanks for sharing this journey with me. it wouldn't be the same without YOU!
