A new decade calls for reflection on who I am now and who I want to be going forward. So many of my 2019 intentions are coming with me into the roaring 20s: be kind to myself, nurture my kid into a solid human, and live always in love.
New in 2020 is to find peace in that I am a person who does many and diverse things and that is okay. I don’t need to stick to one thing to stay on “brand”; I can write fiction and nonfiction books, design and run an interdisciplinary major, own a business that works with artists and scientists, read, collect art and rocks, garden, travel, grow in my faith, date the Pacific Ocean, cook daily, build community, practice hospitality, buy a house.
Like a clade depicts, many seemingly unrelated organisms can have a common starting point. My clade represents my projects and passions and how many possibilities can originate from me.
