In Numbers

Continuing the theme of the last two posts, this one is about numbers – specifically, important numbers that are occupying my life, my energy, and my mind. This is something that I've been trying to put together for hours and hours; I'm finding that my emotions are too tied up in these numbers, though math is one of the most objective concepts in the world.

Perhaps that's why I've chosen to do this post the way I have: I can state facts and not have to wrestle with how to ever write comprehensively or eloquently about all these huge, simultaneously-occurring changes. (It may help you contextualize if you remember that I am currently living at home.)

SIX // states
will separate me and my mama when she and my stepfather move to New Hampshire in June.

THIRTEEN // school days
until the academic year ends and I leave my position with the YMCA.

THREE // weeks
until I move in with a friend in Philadelphia.

TWO // months
until she moves away, too.

ZERO // additional plans
that I have been able to solidify (like a job and permanent housing).
I am terrified and overwhelmed and, in moments of peace, excited for the road that lies ahead. Charge, indeed. I will keep you updated, as I am able. Please keep me in your thoughts.
All my love.

Half a Decade

Hey there.
It's been a while.

I am still here, alive and well, but busier than I have ever been. Big changes are coming, and preparations (and stress, and overwhelm, and excitement, and tears) are ongoing. I shall reveal it all, in time.

Last week a milestone passed: this little blog turned a five years old. Five! Time does fly.
Through all these years there have been ebbs and flows, ups and downs, bursts of creativity and periods of stagnation. As an individual I have grown and changed and learned and overcome, and My Peacetree has reflected that, too.

I have become quieter over the years, both in this space and in the chatter of my mind. The stillness of the latter is welcome, though I regret not being more present here. Perhaps when things settle down in my life I will be able to return to regular posts – but then again, who knows? I am at peace with who I am and what this space is. If you'd like to see more of me, however, you can find me on Instagram, where I share photos daily.

Please know that, no matter where I am, I love you dearly and think of you often, sweet reader. I appreciate your patience and your companionship to no end. How I wish we could spend the day together, painting, chatting, and enjoying each other's presence!

Until we meet again, dear one –
All my love,
