open invitation no. 93: say hello (or goodbye)

If you’re brave enough to say goodbye, life will reward you with a new hello.

[Paulo Coelho]

I live in the Midwest and experience the gamut of four full seasons. I spend a lot of time thinking about seasons, the traditional seasons of summer, fall, winter, and spring, as well as the seasons of life.

August is a month where we can linger in summer, offering a slow goodbye, and it is a month where we can open our arms and say hello to fall.

It seems like life is often a pairing of hello + goodbye.

The invitation is to write a hello or goodbye post. This can be list-y, poetic, image-heavy, or prose. Just linger in the hello or goodbye that your heart needs to record.

*Remember, you don’t have to accept this invitation…but I do hope you will accept the invitation to write. Sharing our stories is magical.
