Hello May flowers and continued AprilintoMay showers. Hello new perspectives and newer goals. This month I want to be kind, to my family, to my friends, to myself, to the people on the street I'm too busy to talk to. I want to get to work: on writing, on reading, on reinvesting in my social life. I want to remind myself of my budget, of my dreams, of my everyday, simple joys, like new red boots with gray laces or seeing so many snails after the rain. Like skyping with my sister and her kids, making my mom laugh on the phone during what's become a traditional Sunday night chat, writing letters and receiving them, a really good strawberry.
