I am missing blogging.
But life has been keeping us busy around here.
Kind of fitting that I started the month and the year with a barefoot romp in the snow,
and that I just ended the month poking my toes outside this morning.
I was letting out the dog and felt the warmth of the sunshine on the back deck and had to step out
and play with my shadow for a minute.
Not ready for bare feet walking out there at all but the minute I spent out there reminded me that warmth and spring will get here eventually !
Little Jayden has been conducting our lives a little as we help out his mom where and when we can,
keeping our hearts all mushy and filled with baby love !
That, and some major house de-cluttering, as well as some big life changing decisions coming down the loop,
have kept me from getting to making much art these days either.
I am feeling the itch of that though, as I always do when I go too long without getting messy.
Making a promise to myself to get back to that asap.
I was thrilled to receive my contributor’s copy of this beautiful new book by Patti Digh,
the Geography of Loss in the mail yesterday.
I was so pleased with how my art work was featured on page 19,
with a perfect “Embrace what is:” inspiration.
It is so special to see your own art work in a published work of writing like this !
I so appreciate how Patti encourages and supports artist in such special ways.
Thanks for letting me be a part of it, Writer-Lady.
There is more in store for us as collaborators coming soon !
So yes, big changes look like they are on the way for David and me.
If things work out as we think they will, this will be the last winter we spend in the North East US for awhile…
More news when things come clear.
Happy Friday, beautiful Ones !
Big Love !
