One last thing before we go.
About two months ago I was reading Off Center & Not Even, by Timothy Price, and there was this stunning image, which led the photos that day, you can see it here. I commented that I would love to have that image hanging on a wall in my house. Well, Tim responded with, what size would you like. I told him the size, and here is what it looks like hanging on my wall. I love it. Thank you again, Tim.
It’s been an amazing month, filled with anticipation, anxiety, and a ton of excitement! Engaging with all of you this month was as it always is, filled with amazing support, kindness, generosity, and love.
I am filled with a ton of emotion as I type these words. Elation and excitement about tomorrow’s release of Nature Speaks of Love and Sorrow, gratitude for each of you, and a deep and profound appreciation for our community.
