big milestones this month. a daughter now sixteen and driving. a son leaving elementary school and inches taller than i am already. there has been less time for introspection. prayers have been sung behind the wheel of my car, while shuttling from one celebration to another.
but still, i gather and collect. taste and feel the heat of each moment on my skin. so many vignettes and tableaus, fragments and glimpses of beauty. i’m not able to capture it all, but the old fear of missing it is lost. i know that i am in it and that it is impossible not to blink once in a while.
sometimes when i try to focus, my field of vision becomes this luminescent blur. all light and shapes, a fusion of the details into one lovely abstract. i like to think of those blended visuals as what it is to connect. when it becomes no longer milestones and moments, snapshots and captures, but rather the intangible oneness that is always there. patient, waiting, ours.
i look out (and in) with offering. with gratitude and a less insatiable hunger. i feel met and known. fed, in love, in time.
as the summertime calls, i want for nothing, will indulge in everything, and wish only the same for you.
