fits and starts

I left on my run this morning five minutes earlier than usual. It was like stepping onstage before the appropriate time, too early for an entrance, out of turn.

So here’s the plan: the charming fiancé and I are getting hitched this coming August (!). Thus, we are planning a wedding. We are trying to do so whilst maintaining our principles concerning: simple living, ethical consumption, gender equity/feminism and general reasonableness…and ensuring everyone’s inclusion and happiness…and anticipating bumps in the road prior to tripping over […]

But something else has distracted me as well. Yes, my friends, […]
