love + realsies

i had the "color run" on my calendar to do for months
(scheduled yesterday) + i had thought this run would be 
the topic of today's post.


instead, a fever rose up + said "stay home".
this reminded me of being 8 + my whole fam got sick 
+ we couldn't see the new pippi longstocking movie as planned!


the only thing left for me was to feel my sadness
+ then notice what may appear next...


sweetly, this dear artist, signe, was able to take my place
+
i moved, full circle, + ordered a pippi longstocking book + dvd!
...
another next will be a barnes + noble book signing
in roseville, minnesota, july 20 at 2pm
link: book signing 
all with love + realsies to the beats in our hearts

so many times I run from this...fill it up with junk so I don't feel it...but I know I will experience it again...

Hope you are feeling better!
