Summer has come, which often brings many changes as people transition from school to work or head out tree planting. This summer, however, the change is fairly subdued. Only 2 housemates went planting, and only one new friend is subletting.
Last summer brought a slew of new residents. There is always air of excitement in those new times of discovery. At times the energy and changes can be a bit overwhelming, as your home, the most intimate of places, changes shape. After some months the dust settles and routines emerge.
Of course it is not all flowers and roses. Many times we may not feel that connected to one another. But when I take a step back from it all – I realize the beauty of it. I feel privileged to be a part.
