Reflections 🍁🍂Blog October 29, 2023
I’d like to recognize the tragedy we all witnessed last week in Lewiston/Auburn. Some of us were more deeply impacted than others, but I think we were all touched in some way and it was shocking to our psyches. I wish our politicians (in Maine and on the Federal level) would pass serious and real gun control legislation – I believe that change happens through policy and we need leaders who will enact policy that protects us. Use your voice and your power in the voting booth to elect politicians whose ideals reflect your own and who have the courage to speak out and catalyze change
Also, if you can find the time and space to care for yourself, do that. Escape to the woods for a beautiful woods walk, sink into a bath with an engaging book, hop on your bike and move your strong legs, sweat a little, drink in the fall air, enjoy the reds, yellows, and oranges of the changing leaves, run hard, stretch your body while loving up Yoga with Adriene – find a way to connect your heart with your body and the natural world – this is something you’ll never be sorry for.
Sign up here if you’d like to join a group of women from the LAC at the Poplar Stream Maine Huts & Trails hut for a weekend of outdoor time, community, and wood stacking. Ember and Sarah are organizing. Please reach out to them with questions. It’s the November 4/5 weekend.
Upcoming Community (not all LAC) Adventures – These are not LAC adventures (except for the ones that say, “LAC”). These are adventures we’re sharing that are put-on by other orgs. If you have ideas for the calendar or want to organize an LAC community adventure, please send me a note.
