Here I am again, after about a year of radio silence. Summer of ’17 was packed with commitments and simultaneous intentions to post on this space. Days became weeks, weeks became months, still Filigree Lane remained quiet. My fall and winter looked different than I expected. At first this was disappointing, seemingly wasteful and hard, but it became purposeful and full of worth. Lots of life and learning has happened in this period of silence. Now, I am ready to write about the days ahead!
