Around here.

Around here, we've sucked the marrow out of summer - so much so that I forgot to tell you anything about it. YES! Life is so good I forgot to blog about it!
And? Read this beautiful piece by Erin Loechner. You'll be so happy you did.
And? The kids have gone back to school. So far, so good (it's been 3 days).

Roam freely.

Seriously? Is the summer practically over? Because, it's my favorite. Suddenly it's not an expanse of sun-drenched lazy days stretching out as far as we can see, but not enough weeks in which to wedge a season's worth of adventure.
And? I bought school shoes today. I don't want to talk about it.  

Our pup dictates the rhythm of our days now, and I'm grateful to have a fabulous dog-friendly West Marin Bed and Breakfast (lunch and dinner) (you cook) (it's my parents' house) where I am allowed to roam freely and for free.
Ongoing feelings of failure and inadequacy have been mitigated by the President of the United States, who told me: You failed? Well, that's what you get for trying.*
And by my favorite cheerleader/therapist/parents who said: Shut up, you're doing a great job.** And: Maybe, read more fiction and fewer tweets.**

* I'm paraphrasing. And inferring.
Also, he wasn't talking to or about me. I found it inspirational anyway.
** Again, totally paraphrasing.
