giving thanks (these days)

summer has slipped by in a way that always surprises me; even after 6 summers of camp . The days feel long and I am often too tired to read or write much of anything, but I am thankful for hard work and the ways that I am loved in this place. We have two weeks left with campers and some summer staff have already left to move on to the next steps in life. I am grateful for all the laughter & joy that this summer has brought, and beginning to feel sad about it ending, but comforted in the knowledge that our community will remain.

Lately I’ve been thankful for long, long hikes to places like this,


for sun filled days on the lake, laughing and learning together,


for visits from dear friends & the joy of sharing this place with them,




& for daily reminders to be present, to be kind & to live freely.


happy august to you all; what are you thankful for today?
