    thank you so much sweet L, especially for the additional summary reflection. always a great tag team we are hehe! i just got back from walking to get mail and every day the transitions in nature keep shifting little by little, overnight. feels just like how it is for us….we don’t see it happen, but then there it is. step by step, percolating behind the scenes as we move forward. i’ve felt the same about may and june and right now enjoying the divine “detour”. love you!
