How we decided to start this year? Quietly. Softly. Inspired. With local fruit and coffee in the morning. Afternoons exploring trails and in the water with fish. And handstand practice forever.
There's milkweed in my yard. My bedside table is stacked with books on butterflies. I joined the Dplex list (hello rabbit hole for monarch enthusiasts!). And I managed to get us slated to participate in the annual monarch count California. Bucket-list item? Check.
That amazing time of year where I get to tag along with real scientists to count cranes in Oregon. And this year? There were more than I've ever seen.
