summertime stories & hopscotch chronicles

{bloom where you are planted but also re-member what roots you}

Summer is more like a feeling for me than it is a season on the calendar.

As a young child I remember the ease of having slow mornings, bike rides on house-lined streets and no particular place to go; blue skies, spending time in the sun and the field of tall grasses behind my home.

It was a time for mud pies and hobbies and barefoot expeditions. Days-end marked by leaving my rock and stick collections, along with grass-tied bouquets of wild flowers, on the wire spool table at the corner of our covered patio.

Days were for sunshine and pleasure: barefoot walks, cicada songs and creamy, hand-turned ice cream. Bedtime was determined according to when the fire flies started flashing their light.

Perhaps the next few months could include remembering your own summertime stories? Perhaps even a bit of childlike transformation?

Braveheart, I believe art heals — and that art is as simple as abiding outdoors with the morning sky or jotting lists or having a favorite color. I created Right Brain Planner® because I needed a "planner" that offered space but didn't trigger my daily expectations. I needed a planner that was a journal — a place to creatively document my {living} + collect my blurts and random collage. Perhaps you are in need of the same? If so, I hope you will join me via our shared online connections. ♥
