Sisters are Doing It For Themselves

My younger sisters, Devan and Theo, are up visiting from Florida. I’ve been busy hosting, but thought I’d give a sample of what we’ve been up to. Having them around has made it officially feel like summer for me.
Eating outdoors, swimming in mountain creeks, having dinner at 10, enjoying fireflies at dusk, stopping at roadside farm stands and picking blueberries have allowed me to feel fully present in my body and in my environment.
Were there a fire hydrant out here, I’d be tempted to open it and revel in the torrent (although, what with the drought and all, the guilt would be crippling). You know “If You Want to Sing Out, Sing Out” by Cat Stevens? That’s the anthem for this week.
