A short musing from your girl SnapDragon.
. . .
Hi! Happy Monday, friends.
And greetings from my bed, where Henry the Cat and I are taking a moment just to be.
The whir of the ceiling fan, the clink-clank of zippers in the dryer, and a lawn mower in the distance are somehow soothing my weary soul.
It’s a new day, and I feel good.
I feel comforted by boxed mac n’ cheese and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. I feel happy when I sing Father John Misty songs on the top of my lungs. I feel loved by so many good people in this world.
And as Back-to-School Time begins–despite not even being in a classroom–I feel that old familiar feeling:
Leave the rest behind, Snap.
I will be gentle, and kind. I will listen. I will be a friend to myself. I will rest. I will ask questions with humility and curiosity.
I will live my life.
And I will be happy.
