The girls and I will be planting our seed selves amongst family as we kick off summer vacation, first at my parents house and then at the seashore with my Mom, sister, sister-in-law, four nieces, one nephew and two daughters for our annual KIDS WEEK...extremely cozy in our two bedroom condo in OC, MD! Is it hard to visualize so many people in one small space? Look at all the seeds attached to the stem of this dandelion puff. I think our family is like this, connected to a slender stem flowing with the milk of love, strong roots anchoring us as one.
Starting July 1st, I’ll be immersed in the River of Stones with many other bloggers. This means for the entire month I will be writing mindful observations; small stones instead of the longer posts I often share. No photos until I return from our vacation, as I won’t have access to my external drive where I store my images while traveling. You never know, a stone may become polished and decide to be a haiku for one shot wednesday, but all will be simple, easy breezy, summer infused words about what I notice each day. And of course I'll capture plenty of images while at the shore of ocean, sky and bay and who knows what else...certain to inspire pebbles if not stones to be shared in my favorite photo memes throughout the month once we return home! If you want to wade into the river with us please visit Fiona and Kaspa here to learn more about gathering a pocket full of stones of your own and to register to participate.
Hopefully I’ll be starting my new medication when we come home and maybe even start feeling better by the time August arrives when I resume my more full-bodied posts. (You never can tell what will happen before you get there:-)
I’ll be online to post daily (unless we have internet issues) and might even visit a few blogs when the kids are down at the beach. Beaches and MS are not a great combo, but I will be able to enjoy sitting by the pool in my wheelchair beneath an umbrella with a water spritzer to keep me cool, a book, my Mom and sisters for company. Expect one more full post before we leave on Wednesday.
