Well, March was an interesting month here in Virginia! We had a very mild Winter (no complaints…) and it seemed Spring came early. Over the last couple of weeks we’ve had some really gorgeous weather that made lots of people and pets shake off hibernation-mode and venture out for some Spring sunshine. Sometimes I look at the calendar and wonder where the time went but then I take a moment to look back at all I’ve done over that time and marvel at how many great experiences I’ve had. This month, the dates on my calendar say:
“Wings, Creative Live, AWLFC, Odie, TT, Rose’s, Rio, Tattoo, Pet Expo, Fondue Night!, Labs-Burke, KISS ticket pre-sale, Wolf Trap tix, New York, Petco, Grace, Chandler, EAP, Julie”
All those seemingly cryptic little scribbles mean something that was special enough to write down and look forward to and *experience*. They are friends and fun and photography and life. My life. With all it’s ups, downs, and surprises. It’s all mine and I can write whatever words on that calendar that I want to write. I’m sometimes sad if a day gets crossed away with a fat, black Sharpie before anything is written in it. I think that’s why I love my journal so much – I can ramble on during those quiet days and even if I’ve spent them doing not-so-noteworthy things, at least I have a record the the day existed and that I used it the way it was meant to be used. And yes, sometime that means just breathing. But March… oh, March left little time for idling! There were new clients/friends to meet, new dogs and cats looking for homes, new projects, new collaborations… Yes. I think I like all my scribbling.
