It’s been a weird sort of summer, dramatically veering from glowing blue skies to overbearing charcoal clouds and cracks of thunder.
I’m making the most of it, though: on beautiful days, I walk for miles, taking photos and listening to music, and when it’s raining like today, I stay inside, hunkered down, thinking and writing.
There’s a very exciting deadline looming, too: Kat and Shauna arrive in NYC next week, so I’m working like a maniac, getting everything squared away before they touch down. If their previous trips to NY are any indication, we’ll basically be frolicking non-stop… And I can’t wait!
As I said earlier this week, I am going through a really interesting phase at the moment. I’ve been thinking so much about evolution and transformation, and yesterday I saw my first butterfly of the season. In my world, there are no coincidences: there is a rhyme and reason to everything I see. Every sign acts like a piece of shocking pink thread sewing my life together, promising me that it all makes sense and reminding me to stay in the flow.
So that’s what I’ve been thinking about lately… Oh, and last week I danced naked in front of 13 women. OOH LA LA! More about that soon!

Your gratitude prompt: Who are you thankful to have in your life right now?
Is it your lover, your best friend, your boss? Who has brought a little sunshine into your week? Even if you just moved to a new city and don’t know anyone, maybe you’re grateful for your helpful building manager, or the sweet flight attendant who brought you an extra blanket…
Think about it, then write it down. You can either add this to your own gratitude list, or share with me!
