Delighted to share that our latest experiment over on BFN -- bornfree.substack.com -- is both fun AND energizing. We were gifted 3 amazing #connecticate conversations this week.

A new #connecticate invitation with a new question drops tomorrow morning. Typist and the muses hope you’ll consider joining in the fun.

At our last B&B (it's our tradition for the last 23 years to stay at a B&B for our anniversary) we discovered a cute coffee/cappuccino machine that Deb fell in love with. So easy! So quick! We wrote down the specs and checked on Amazon when we got back home... and found it was expensive to buy, not cheap to maintain, and was perfect for the cute little cups the B&B had but not for the monster mugs Deb & I prefer. <sigh> Well, we're doing okay with our electric kettle, after all. 😁

I regularly assemble small things into a bigger thing both with words and flowers...

Are there any small things that stand out in your life. Easter 🐣 is approaching and I look forward to being on the ground with two small human creatures and witnessing what they create with their egg decorating skills...

These small moments are the ones that weave together the tapestry of our lives and the tales that will be told long after we have returned to stardust... 💫✨💫

My take…

Well, I think Captain Kirk expresses it really well here:
