nonna

my sweet grandma passed away one year ago today. in her honor and as an act of self love, i spent the day exploring the woods alone. i wandered around the broad river natural area, following creeks, dipping my toes in the river, and sitting on rocks. i made a little memorial to both my grandparents next to a creek, said some prayers, and gave thanks for all the gifts they gave us.i have been contemplating love a lot since the spring equinox, and especially now in times of thinking about my grandma. one of the greatest gifts she ever gave us was the example of unconditional love. i struggle with seeing love in the world, with connecting to love . i am often surly and judgmental, but i have watched these attitudes make me miserable .so i am trying to be more open to love. self love. love of others. love for the world.

today’s memorial.
