|Isn't this wonderful? I love this kind of "found art," this poetic invitation to see what how much of Nature can be found in city life if we look beyond the power poles, if we choose to pause in the shade (or bike to the lake)|
Thanks so much for all your kind anniversary wishes! I'm granting myself permission to respond collectively here, having just barely caught up to responding to comments on my "Badass" post. I love the conversation we've been having about this, and hosting a forum for the community here is a wonderful privilege. I'm trying to figure out, though, how to keep it sustainable. I've been paying a bit more attention to how much time I spend responding to comments, and it's generally the equivalent of writing another substantive post. I'm not prepared to relinquish this joyful task, but I know that I need to figure out ways to manage it before I extinguish my interest and my energies. I have a few strategies in mind, and I'll perhaps write more about them soon -- or just experiment here and there until I find out what works for keeping you engaged and me healthy and content.
