My cold got a cold.
An email from Sam’s school that turned into a red flag that became a series of conversations, a meeting and a great deal of progress in the right direction. Advocacy ain’t no joke.
A few dates.
Uncle’s oceanic journey giving way to my scheduling coverage adventure.
A parting and the deep loss that came with it.
Two invitations to facilitate an anti-bias workshop with educators, and an offer to submit a proposal for a book.
Halloween? Yes. Yes, I know where I put it. It’s there under the paperwork for the roof estimate and the refinancing. Under the schedule for swimming lessons, and PTO meetings. It’s near the grocery list on the back of the lunch calendar.
Where are the snow shovels? In the cellar where they belong in October!
Oh no? Really. Check if there is one last roll in the pantry-next to the spare five minutes I left there last month?
Are you still standing? How do you keep the balance from tipping? What was it about October? Happy November. May it bring some peace and ease, and CALM to all of us in need of it.
