grace, lately

the leaves are beginning to fall.  i love summer, but autumn is my favorite time of year.  it's when i feel a sense of comfort and renewal and its beauty leaves me in a perpetual state of awe.

i love being a homebody.  i am so grateful for a quiet, nurturing space and the person and creatures i share it with.

when i teach in roanoke, i walk past this building on the way to the office.  if i were to live in a city building, i would want it to be something like this.

don't you love it when you find an article of clothing that could not be more suited for you?  it was instant love when i found this coat.  i can't wait to wear it.

transitioning out of summer means one final cleaning and organization of our outdoor space.  we spent saturday outside in glorious weather tending to this piece of world that is so dear to us.  this rug was one of my first purchases for our backyard 12 years ago.  it is made of recycled plastic bottles and it is a beautiful powerhouse.  we've never brought it in and it has withstood years of rain, dogs and various other wild animals, blizzards and ice.  i highly recommend them.  you can find them many places, this site is a good start.

and finally, this week the lovely jen lee and i finalized plans for a screening of her documentary indie kindred to play locally at randolph college in the fall.  i am over the moon.  i love jen and her talent never fails to blow me away.  the film is about creatives finding each other and working together to make the world beautiful.  take a look at the trailer here.  you can find screening locations and ticket information here.

autumn is going to be amazing.  thank you universe.
