as promised, i'm going to give away a pair of earrings here on the blog this week in celebration of movement and momentum. summer is not as intense as spring, i think, in terms of metaphorical movement, but it is such a ripe season - the season of fruit and fullness. it is the season of rivers, which are (in and of themselves) one of the worlds grandest metaphors for movement and flow. do you live near a river? i just found out that the particular ridge i live on lies between (almost exactly) the Feather River and the Yuba River. i am equidistant from them both, and they both entail a fair amount of driving to get to. but one must always find the rivers. i was lucky enough to grow up on one of the most beautiful lakes (Lake Tahoe) around, and so i grew up with crystal water at my feet. all the time. where shall we go? was never a question - we were always at the lake.
so then, this giveaway is in honor of summer and water, of ripening and growth. to enter this giveaway, please follow this blog, and leave a comment below. you may get one extra entry for tweeting/blogging/facebooking/etc., about this giveaway. in that case, please leave another comment that you did so.
