I haven't written for a long while, long for me being long winded and always having something to say about everything. I have been busy and I have been tackling a long list of things I need to get done but I have kept my fingers quiet through some transitions. Needless to say, when Joy is quiet too long that means there is plenty coming down the pipeline. So stay tuned.
I am going to be 47 this month. That is just a number. But there are so many things that have happened between 46 and 47 that I can celebrate and be happy for. And there are sad things too. Suffice it to say that I will enjoy writing about those things in the months coming up. Expect real. Expect authentic. Expect no bullshit.
I got a chance to see some family recently and that filled my cup. I saw my Mom although I wish I had seen her for a few more days, an hour was better than nothing. I saw my twin and that was such a delight. I saw my cousin who I also consider a surrogate sister and that is always the best of times. I saw my younger brother and that was so special that when I think of it I smile. I saw all these ladies that mean the world to me, Tara, Elisa, Francoise, Maggie, Germaine, Eunie, Whitney, Joanne, if I am leaving you out I didn't mean to. I got to see my sister-in-law and family and that was awesome, the list goes on and on. I got to drive across the Golden Gate like 4 times. I got to go hiking in Marin. I got to have breakfast made by my MIL. I got to wear fancy shoes.
And then I came home and squeezed my top level people and that didn't suck. I am glad I got to sneak away, that always makes coming back a little sweeter. Even when they bicker and even when it rains for what feels like months on end.
Happy Fall Ya'll, hope your changing leaves are as beautiful as mine.
