My last day at my day job as the office manager at the University of Vermont’s LGBTQA Services was eight days ago. I am officially freelancing now. In other words the wild experiment begins. So far I’m not really scared but thrilled and am taking time to slow down and collect myself after a hectic nine months leading up to this moment. Soon I’ll start a writing routine but for now weeding the sunflowers, riding my trike, reading stuff that has nothing to do with work, and relishing summer abundance is more than enough.
