We were at the park the other day. The boys were playing and I was distracted. I’ve been a little preoccupied lately with trying to find an apartment and get our living situation sorted out. This next year of school coming up for Silas (his last one!) is exciting, full of audition rotations and interviews, but it means that he will be out of state for pretty much the entire year.
So there’s that.
After a while I realized that the boys had wandered off, so I went to go find them and round them up for a Costco trip (bless you Costco, for being the high point in our weeks). I found them playing in this little field of clover. It was lush and green (everything that I miss, living in the desert) and absolutely beautiful. It was a nice reminder that, even when I’m lost in a fog (even one primarily of my own making), there is still brightness out there.
All I have to do is look up.
Speaking of bright things, I just finished my fourth book of the year (I know, I’m so behind 🙂 ), and–miracle of miracles–all four have been fantastic! It’s rare that I read so many good ones in a row. I just started the next one in my stack and I’m eager to get lost in it.
Are you reading anything good right now? I’m forever working on my “to read” list and I’d love to add to it.
