The person who loves their dream of community will destroy community, but the person who loves those around them will create community.
I really want to try and get the vlog going weekly again. I ❤️ sharing but also ❤️ having them to watch back on. Especially Harper’s growth. So, here’s to trying! (If you’re wondering it’s just the time factor…the editing…and the need for sleep…how did I do it for 1 1/2 years five times a week?????)
This is Harper’s second week of preschool. He’s there from 8-2:30 M-F so on my day off, Monday, I have some time to just sit and do whatever I want…forgot about that kind of time! Olivia had a sub class early so I’ve been sitting on the front porch listening to the cicadas sing and reading a bit.
This Atlantic article so far:
This is devastating reading about yet another way in which our African American brothers and sisters have been cheated and swindled and stolen from. Lord have mercy.
Im reading two books right now (which I don’t love doing – but my holds keep coming up at the library so I have to make it work!)
The Crucifixion by Fleming Rutledge
If Beale Street Could Talk by James Baldwin
Both very good so far.
Signing off to read!!
