This is the week we spend at what I call family camp-- catching up with friends we've missed all year, hearing from powerful speakers, doing tie-die and just relaxing with an ice cream cone. It's time outside time, although with not enough sleep to go around there are a few dramatic moments.
It's a good time to reflect, re-center and commit to something new in the upcoming year. (I still think in school years versus calendar years with two kids at home.)
My reflections are that I want to prioritize my writing more, keep up with my blog more and do a whole lot more social justice work, especially regarding public education and race relations. I don't know what shape the next iteration of my work will take, but I've got some ideas in mind after just the first few days of this week. I can't wait to share more!
