It was not in the cards that I’d abruptly stop the daily writing and posting here – it just worked out that way. A flurry of deadline related work and a visit from a dear friend shifted the routines of summer. Without warning.

I got to have late conversations and whip up a few tasty healthy meals. Met with exciting students preparing for a new year of ritual and learning. Did some planning with a lovely couple making a commitment in front of family and friends in the early fall, when the sun will set earlier and warm winds will likely (finally) arrive by the Bay.
The coming week is more of the same. Lots of meetings, ritual time, creative intentions and a shifting daily routines.
