Today is absolutely wonderful!  We have not seen moisture of any significance in months so to awake to the pitter-patter of rain drops was very thrilling.  While I am normally a “sunshine” girl – needing the brightness and warmth to energize my soul, I am really enjoying the grumbling grey skies and very subdued light. The world looks clean and refreshed, plants perking up reaching for more, rocks and earth looking so very rich and warm.  The colors just pop.  Taking a lesson from mother-nature – it is good that we stop, take a deep breath  and “wash” our thoughts, our souls….our being…..rid our minds of the dry, dusty sludge that builds up – allow a clean fresh new warmth to wash over us.  I hope you get your “rain” soon.

Where did it go?!

I am having a hard time tracking where the last few months have gone! It seems like I just posted and wow – no it has been several months. That is not to say that I have been sitting around eating bon-bons – but then I didn’t think I had been that busy! There have been a lot of changes in my personal life – most for the better. I resigned from my position on the local Fiber group with the intent of concentrating on developing a good body of art work. I was looking forward to having only to make decisions of color or shape or stitch….well as you know the best laid plans….. it seemed the universe had different ideas for me. I ran and was successful in being elected to Converse’s City Council. I know in my heart there is a reason I was put in this position as I don’t believe that anything happens without being planned long before our feet hit this earth. I must be patient and let my job unfold and reveal itself to me. I will still work on my art – just not as much as I originally had planned. I still have several “finish lines” that are coming up fast and I have been working on smaller pieces.
It will be interesting to see where this path leads me and how my art work will be influenced by it. I can only open my mind, heart and soul and accept the opportunities that will present themselves to me. I’m looking forward to a wild ride over the next few years!
