Hi there, sparklers! I was watching Milo make dog friends at the park this morning, and I was realizing that one of the things we often miss, as adults, is the opportunity to make friends like dogs do. To run up to someone new and say, hi! Chase me! Or, ya know, let’s talk about a shared interest! Or do an activity! Ok see you later byeeee! It’s a playful, low-stakes kind of social energy I haven’t seen many places in adulthood, but one place I always experienced it was A-Camp. Missing my camp friends and community today! I hope you’re all doing well, and living that sweet, four-berry breakfast kind of life.
