Life ... it goes on

I haven't been writing. 

It doesn't mean I’m not thinking and doing and feeling.
It just means that I haven't been writing. 
And I can't freak out about it. 

 The desire to express myself in written form will come back –

and found a few more reasons 
to be grateful for
coming back to work.

And, as always,
in the midst of all the 'not still',
there are still moments of

and beauty.
