Change is in the air. Okay, so change is always in the air, but what with this ever-morphing airborne virus, change is truly, really in the air. Here's hoping whatever variant comes next, it's more a good change than a bad change.
To that end, here are some wise women’s thoughts about change:
I never wanted what I thought I wanted
But always something else
Which changed again as soon as I had found it.
-Mary Carolyn Davies
Fluidity and discontinuity are central to the reality in which we live.
-Mary Catherine Bateson
Better never means better for everyone…it always means worse for some.
You must not change one thing, one pebble, one grain of sand, until you know what good and evil will follow on that act.
-Ursula K. Leguin
Once an old woman at my church said the secret is that God loves us exactly the way we are and that he loves us too much to let us stay like this, and I’m just trying to trust that.
All birth is unwilling.
-Pearl S. Buck
May the next few changes in your life be good ones..

I write for teens, narrate audio books, bake bread, play music, and ponder the wonder of words in a foggy little town on California's central coast.
