A Day Out

A new resolve: to go outside, to hike the trails open to us in the Pacific Northwest, to spend less spare time on blue screens, to disconnect from social media, and to engage with our fives senses and each other. In the time of this pandemic and nerve-wracking year, I am thankful to have work I love, but being sedentary and in front of screens all day takes its toll. As a counter to that, I resolve to be present with the people I love, to be kind, to create more, to draw, to write, to read, and to give my body movement. I want to live with grace and to appreciate that which I may have taken for granted. I will, I will, I will.
