it’s that time of the month – assessment and setting of dreams/goals.
june is a mixture of physical, creative, spiritual, and relationship aspirations. in addition, i turn 37 on the 30th. love birthdays. as 2010 unfolds, i’m definitely feeling a shift take place. what that is is to be determined. searching for clarity seems to make it even more elusive. time will tell. in the interim, i’m doing my best to savor tranquility (and many lessons) along the way.
