I love to turn the calendar page. Despite having calendars on my iPhone and iPad and MacBook, I do still have an actual paper calendar on the wall in my kitchen where I record birthdays and important dates (the day in 1999 when I learned how to surf, the day in 2003 when I attended my first party at my now-husband’s house) — and where I spend a quiet moment every month acting out the passage of time by pulling my calendar from its hook, flipping a page over and revealing 30-some new little boxes.
A new calendar page also means a new installment in our Mother Sugar Salon: Join the Conversation series. Here’s how it works:
- Answer the question of the month in the comments section below, or use the question as inspiration for your own blog post and comment with a link to your post so we can be sure to find it.
- At the end of the month, we’ll reflect on your comments – how you’ve inspired us or changed our perspective (giving you full credit for your comments, and hopefully sending some readers your way).
February, the month of love notes and construction paper hearts and Valentines sent to friends (and, maybe, the opposites of those things too), inspired this question:
What are your rules for letting someone into your heart? Or: at times when your heart has been broken or filled or hurt or set on fire, what have you learned?
