"Right now, the world is drenched in tears, but that's precisely the time when we most need something to lift our sights to the horizon. The future. The reality that the world will keep turning, the Moon our constant companion and silent witness.I've signed up and am hoping to get a spot!
We're sending a time capsule to the future with stories written today.
I can't think of a more beautiful thing to spend time on in this moment. So I finally got the website built, the forms assembled, and created a plan for organizing this whole adventure.
I hope you'll join me.
We don't have much time, so don't delay in applying for a slot! I'll blog about all of it as we go. You can check back here, join the Facebook Group to meet your fellow Moon Capsule Enthusiasts, or subscribe to the newsletter, which will also chronicle the adventure. All of this is designed to be a lasting snapshot of this tumultuous time: more on the details of that to come.
For now, sign up and join me in spreading a little hope in these, the darkest days of a very dark winter."
And now for another new release: Let It Be Me by Kait Nolan
"Four years ago, firefighter Caleb Romero saved a child and met the woman of his dreams. But trauma killed the timing, so he’s contented himself with being the friend she needed as she navigated sudden parenthood.
Four years ago, Emerson Aldridge became a mom in the worst possible way. Without qualm, she abandoned her own dreams to shepherd her teenage daughter through their shared grief. Her number one priority has been to raise Fiona the way her best friend would have wanted.
Now Fi’s headed off to college and Emerson has no idea how to feel about her suddenly empty nest. She barely even remembers life before motherhood, but Caleb’s right next door to give her a reminder—along with a toe-curling kiss that catapults them past friends and into something more. The life she wanted before the accident is still within reach. He just has to convince her that their age difference means nothing.
Piece of cake. Right?"
I read this story in one sitting!
As promised in my last post, more snow! We drove up into the hills to find it:
