Every tree limb overhead seems to sit and wait, while every step you take becomes a twist of fate.
Up on the watershed, standing at the fork in the road...

I'm Ok, You're Ok, We're Ok

I know I completely disappeared.
I am not crying in a closet somewhere.

Court attempt #2 is this Friday and I am feeling much more confident about this one!

Last week I flew to Minnesota and spent the week healing through good twin cities vibes.
I was working too of course. But just being there, in the lush green of humid spring, with the smell of lilacs in the air, soooo close to my childhood house, my elementary school, jr. high, high school, and college, connecting with old friends and new colleagues, was so cathartic.

I have a lot of posts in my head. But I leave for Malawi on May 15th. That sounds so far away until I calculate it this way - I leave one week from Saturday. ACK!! Panic setting in!!

Ok, ok. Calming down. I leave on May 15th. Fine. I can do that. What is this? It's still April right? Feeling better.... even if I am in denial and not looking at the calendar.

So I am trying to plug away at the to do list. Divided into work, baby, travel, home, health, dogs. Wow.

Will post my 'Minnesota is amazing' post as soon as I can.

Thank you for all of the support as we crashed and burned our court date last Monday.



  1. If it makes you panic any less, we can meet for a glass of wine in Boulder sometime next week! If it makes you hyperventilate even more, than a raincheck! :)

  2. Hey! Thinking about you and your court date this week. Praying for good news.

    Thanks for dinner last week. I had a great time. I definitely want to stay in touch.
