Like an elf before Christmas.
Planning meals, cutting up lots of pieces of paper...thinking about seating arrangements.
I might even be wrapping treats.
This weekend friends are coming with bits and pieces.
Bits of paper. Pieces of themselves.
They have stories to tell.
And it's my honor to welcome them.
To nourish them.
To give them some hours away from the to-dos and the families they nourish.
It's their turn
to sit with friends
to share laughter, tales, tears...
It's workshop time.
And piece by piece we will preserve the simple moments
that paint our bigger picture.
