Welcome to the GREAT BIG SUMMERTIME BLOG HULLABALOO, an intimate and sometimes vulnerable celebration of the human spirit. I like to imagine us all sitting in a circle together, perhaps around a crackling fire…. bearing witness to one another’s stories that display such breadth of courage, tenacity, and hope. It’s not too late to grab a seat and share your story (or art, love letter, bucket list, etc.)– there’s nothing else I would love more! For all of the nitty gritty, please read THIS… for we have so very much to learn from one another.
I don’t even know how I first connected to Karen Caterson. I do know, however, that I’ve always felt drawn to her, drawn to her writing, drawn to her website, Square Peg People (how could one NOT be drawn to it with a name like that?). And now I know, more than ever before, that she is someone I’d like to sit down to tea with. Sometimes I feel as though I’m supposed to look for the positive in everything… which honestly, if you have to look that hard for it, kinda defeats the purpose. Sometimes, circumstances around us and within us just suck. And the very real vulnerable truth is that life isn’t always fair to us. I love though, how this sometimes brutal lightening bolt of truth pulls us together. I love how we can dance with one another in our fragility, and know that we’re never, never alone. Thank you, Karen, for this precious reminder of what brings us closer.
