I felt the sun in so many different places since my last post. Any month, like weather, is variable. May wasn’t without great loss. I talk about this a little in my newsletter: tinyletter.com/heathervmyers.
What helps me is directing my efforts and energy into what makes me feel good. Also, creating a protected and sacred space. This takes many forms. Traveling, really just being somewhere that feels new, gives me peace of mind; my writing and art happens easier, more at ease. Old spaces can also few anew. I like revisiting what I know or where I’ve been. There’s usually more to find.
On my road trip down to Florida (where I’m staying for a little with my partner), these are a few places we stopped at: Blackwater Falls in WV; Richmond, VA; Asheville, NC; Tallulah Gorge in GA, St. George’s Island in FL, Wakulla Springs, and several places in Tallahassee, FL. Below are just a handful of photos from the visits.

The month is still early. I will start teaching again soon. I hope you make time and go out to have your adventures, too. ♡
