Life can be real messy with a whole lot of beauty and wonder mixed in. A new month always means new opportunity to grow, shed skin, cling to new hopes, try anew. This day, a year ago, I left CA for Seattle. It has been the oddest year, full of really good sabbath (chosen, joyful rest) and disappointment. Life is a mixed bag. I'm glad I'm living it. I'm glad I'm given it. Are you?
