half way.


we are half way through 2017, and i only just realized it as i was thinking of what to call this post. these little monthly recaps, a thing i always somehow end up doing, started by accident this year, when i wrote a post at the end of january, only one month in, called "this year, so far."

i wrote that post because while everyone seemed to be starting out the year hustling, my life had been calm and restful and i felt like i had nothing to offer, except to say that "nothing" felt so refreshing. i had things i was looking forward to this year, of course. things unseen that, in spite of me not knowing when or how or even what, made me so excited i could hardly sit still. but each one of them came with a little tag: not yet. be still.

rest up.

i snapped this photo of my feet in the midst of taking a bunch of the boy i nanny as he piled rocks onto the concrete and, one by one, put them back. my life in 2017 feels like it has reached a turning point. the first half of the year was full of rest and daydreaming, practicing and playing. but now, things are shifting.

june felt like a small step toward clarity. things that once seemed impossible, solid as concrete, are now taking shape and becoming more tangible.

june happenings.
