It was May when it happened. The change in me, the one that planted little wing sprouts in my shoulders and dared me to fly into the sun. It was last May, do you remember it? The darling blog of May? A blog a day, in May.
I remember it all too clearly. Burying myself and the laptop in the bedroom, writing about the moments that whispered me into the darling of it all. I found myself, in that place. In that darling little town called May.
When I found myself— when I rediscovered that deeper place within me—I stalled. And I’ve been stalling ever since, stalling among a sea of magic (and I’m not kidding about the magic; among other unexplainable things, I am somehow able to see the frequency waves that border my bathroom doorframe. No idea how or why— ALL the magical unicorn eyes, I suppose. Of course, one of my dearest friends has informed me it’s very likely a special form of epilepsy with my name on it, which, granted, could also be true.)
In the past year, I’ve both found and lost vast pieces of my life. I’ve discovered, and have been hovering over, the next steps of this very magical life of mine…but I have no idea where it’s all going to go from here.
So that’s why I’m doing it again.
A blog a day in May.
Another chance to set the wheel in motion and follow the breadcrumbs of life to someplace new, and guess what? You’re coming with me. You. My friends. My fellow joyfully broken humans. We’re all in this together, so I say let’s huddle and see what we can find in this little bloggy land of ours.
As always, with these funny little months of mine, I’ll do my best to come up with new ways to share my heart and make you all smile. But this time I’ll be doing things a little differently. I’ll be removing the pressure from myself entirely and saying: whatever will be, will be. Some days— as has quite often happened in the past— the tank very well may be running on empty. On those days, I’ll ask you to be patient and smile, and look forward to the next round of possibilities, if you’ll be so kind.
There’ll be no rules, this May.
No set ideas.
Just me. You. And our humanity. The path of life and all the wishy-washy wonder that arises to share. I might share the day. I might share a deep insight. I might share a photo, a joke, a tear.
I might share just about anything. And It’ll all start on the first day of May.
Gosh, I hope you’ll meet me there.
All the love hearts,

Has it really been a year already? How well I remember your darling posts! I’m still impressed you were able to do it. Best of luck this May! I can’t wait to read what you write.

Ha ha ha. Aww 💕 I, too,agree it was miraculous that I made it through! Lol. I’ve relaxed my rules a bit this year so fingers crossed the lack of theme will see me in a happier place by the end of the month! 😂We can only hope, right! Omg. ☺️ I miss you! I’m sorry I’ve been slack with your blog! I’ll try to catch up soon. 🌈xx

I hope so, too! I do recall a few that felt quite melancholy. I hope your bright sparkle just lights up the month!
