Hello my dear bvs,
Happy solar eclipse. I don’t know if I’ll see it myself, but I look forward to all of your photos of weird shadows and strange skies.
My husband and daughter are out of town visiting family. I’ve been home alone, enjoying solo time for the past 5 days. It’s felt so good that I’m getting greedy. I want the equilibrium I feel now along with my two favorite people in the house.
Sharing space with others—even the people you love most in the world—comes with compromises. Last week I came home from a long day at work to find that my daughter and her friend had set up a shop in the room where I meditate and write. They set out folded piles of clothes and shoes, taping “price tags” to the wall. Did I revel in the adorableness of it all? Alas, I did not.
