Welcome to Substack, Kristen! I hope you'll find this platform to be a gentle and customizable home for sharing *whatever* and *whenever* you feel moved to do so.

I'm excited about your Substack because I'm fascinated with the intersection of the liturgical calendar and the natural seasons-- especially the way that each magnifies the beauty of the other.

I'm a wife, a mother of grown children, a seasoned homeschooler, a nurse, and a Christian in the Episcopal tradition. Right now, spiritually, I'm in a pared-down season of contemplative prayer and walking. I'm doing a year-long experiment of writing about creativity and photographing the microseasons (tiny 5-day long seasons) along the forest trail near my home in North Carolina.

Feel free to come visit me over at 72seasons.substack.com

I'm jumping late on to the welcome wagon, but I'm so happy you've moved to Substack! I was such a fangirl of yours on IG-- the agrarian roots of the liturgical year are my jam. Your Johnsmas celebration looks wonderful.

I’m so happy you’re on Substack now! I’ve been slowly moving away from social media and your account was one I definitely didn’t want to say goodbye to. Your St John celebration looks lovely!

Nice article! Thanks to S.E. Reid for sharing.

I celebrated St. John's day many years ago on a beautiful farm with a bonfire the size of a city! 😂

It was amazing.

I'm appreciating the descriptions of community that you have. Thank you.
