You may notice that kindness returns. Kindness from others. Or to others. Or love. Or peace. Calm, contentment or empathy. Any of these things. And feel relief. But in its returning recognise, with no small bewilderment, that for it to have returned, it must have also been Gone for a time, too. And now that it's back, you feel the awareness of its absence in your life more acutely. You may feel sad for the gap you only just realised was there. It is confusing, and so human.
But with reflection you may come to realise that the returned thing, was never gone at all. Simply out of your sight for a while. Because yes, there are blocks and shadows; ways that the light can't get in. Until suddenly it can again. You may sit and puzzle for a while. Feel anxious at how important things so easily come and go. But you may come to understand that kindness (and love, contentment, calm...all of these things) has always been on a circular route. There is a base from which it operates. It was always on its way back to you.
This place is a lot more grand in person. Nothing better than sitting with you legs over the edge as the sun disappears. #horseshoebend

Happiness is coming to a beautiful view that was completely unexpected...
Really grateful for the kind waitress who told me about this railroad-turned-trail on my final day in Alberta. It was a perfect way to end my weekend adventure after seeing nothing but gray sky...
Taking the little man for a college visit! It's so crazy to see how the time has really flown by. I used to hate it when moms of older kids would tell how fast the time goes. I remember being knee deep in laundry and dirty diapers and thinking, "No, it doesn't go fast! " well I was wrong. The little man is all grown up, filled with dreams of his own and about to fly the nest. Cue tears!

city feel, mountain vibe 👌🏼what is there to not love about Vancouver?
First time staying in a tiny house and it was life changing. Never realized how spacious it actually is and really makes you think about what you need/don't need in your every day life. Sad to say goodbye after only one night, but another adventure awaits.
La vida se abre paso incluso en las condiciones más desfavorables. Si lo piensas detenidamente, resulta asombroso darse cuenta de la primavera que se esconde dentro del invierno, esperando al momento oportuno.
