#internationaldayofthegirl

This is for my beloved daughter, Eloise, who would have been a fearsome girl to behold. This is for Clara Loise and Anna Louise, Emmy, Reagan and Frankie the fighter. And this is for the sweetest boys in my life who revere women and all of their girls-who-are-friends and give me hope every single day.

Just be the tree.

Just be the tree.

That is the backdrop of these few lines in my journal. When I wrote them, the ending line was a reflection on my peaceful practices that warm autumn day, but it followed a reference to this amazing tree being cut down. With chain saws. You see, this tree was ravaged by a storm and it could no longer stand rooted in its solid ground.

"Every day, bite off more than you can chew, and chew it."
I found this quote in a book I am reading. It is attributed to "a great spiritual teacher" who really could be anyone and I was unable to locate the original source. Maybe it's actually the horse in this month's image. Why not? Without further ado, here is your FREE CALENDAR for April 2017! Eat it up. Share it far & wide :)
