you guys. i am totally blown away by the response i got on my last post. here i thought it was just my mom and her three friends reading/interested! i am so completely flattered/touched/encouraged/inspired by all of your incredibly thoughtful comments and your outpouring of support. while i get the sense that i might look back on this as a total “duh” decision, as we all know, sometimes (always?) even the most obvious answers just take the work to get to, and there’s no way around it, and we are enriched and emboldened by that journey. mine is so full of promise and hope and excitement each day. really, i feel like the luckiest gal alive. but it’s also scary and nerve wracking at first, and you can’t imagine the confidence and comfort i feel knowing not only how much you all stand in solidarity, but also how much these struggles and challenges, wishes and dreams resonate with so many people at so many stages in their lives.
i am so excited to share this journey with you, and already there’s much to tell–as though all i needed to do was put it in writing to make it real, in the days since my previous post i have met many people and sheep, attended lectures, read books and designed, and watched the beautiful puddle of yarn above grow almost into a lovely hat at my fingertips. i will tell all of these stories, each and every one. i just wanted to stop in again and give a deep, heartfelt thanks to all of you for your uplifting words and energy. THANK YOU! more soon.
