Did You Savor and Serve in February?

Mar 1, 2014

You may have noticed I’ve skipped the last two months of this “recap” newsletter. I just haven’t felt like doing it.

I kept thinking I wanted to reinvent this form, come up with something new… which became a bigger and bigger project in my mind… then another month went by without me writing to you (or at least those of you on my monthly list, the rest of you have gotten a regular post)… which then led me to feel overwhelmed, which is never helpful.

Here’s what I finally realized. I needed to just tell you, “Hey, not sure what I’m doing, but I’m still here!”

Because sometimes you don’t know what you’re doing, and I hope you give yourself permission to moddle and ponder until the next move becomes clear. And if your moodling backs you into a corner, I hope you do something.

Here’s what I got right now for you, with a hug and a grateful bow:
