I’m trying new things lately.


In the evenings, after we’ve eaten dinner, our routine of late has been:

My husband and kids watch 30 minutes of TV together.

Usually something like The Zoo or Tanked.

And usually, I would sit on the couch and just mindlessly scroll through my phone as they did it, waiting for their bedtime and our long reads in bed together.

But now, instead of the mindless scroll, I excuse myself.

I run to my bedroom.

And I make instead.

I create. And draw. And write.

Making space for whatever wants to come next.

Making room to listen.

I’m listening, Oh Big Spirit.

I’m ready to be a vessel for you again.
