Moments that Bring Back the Happy

Writing is a necessary part of my life, but it doesn't recharge my batteries.  These are things that do:


Watching my baby walk a stone path I laid with my four-year-old:


Seeing green things poke from the dirt:


Spotting a group of unlikely friends sharing a mystery-snack:


Making something pretty and watching it take root: 



Watching my kids build something for themselves:


Getting outside and playing in the dirt is what fuels my writing fire, not vice versa. Sometimes I have to force myself to get out there, but I always come back refreshed and ready to make words.
