Like many people I know, I’ve been doing some purging — cleaning out closets, cabinets, drawers. Simplifying. Getting things out in the open.
The theme for October is Slowing Down. In that spirit, take a moment to scroll the opportunities coming up this fall.
There’s a lot on the table for you to choose from, and like even the best buffet, it’s not meant for you to take everything.
What suits you best this season? What speaks to your heart?
We have to slow down enough to hear those whispers. Urgency is loud; longing is often soft.
We look forward to sharing this next season with you.
As always, stay in touch.
