ÖÖps! This was intended to be a bit more than a long overdue, oh so seasonal MuseLetter (mind the gap, pretty please, or, rather, hope you don't mind it too terribly much, truth is I've been ever so busy creating)
Winter: the magical sound of snow, so conducive to introspection, hunkering down in my cozy studio
& churning out the butterflies as well as many other new designs....
Putting my all and then some into heARTworks, heART medicine, spirit jewelry >>-->
with intention: keeping as much love and peace in my heART and sharing it through my interactions.
& new >>--> pieces
thinking about ebb and flow,
waxing and waning,
how the archer must pull the arrow back in order for it to launch forward >>-->
Spring: it is spring, sort of, I mean it is still March/April in the Hudson Valley,
those tricky beasty months, so you never know. just this morning (3/26) when I drew back the curtains, I pondered the grass for several moments, trying to decipher whether it was wearing dew or frost,
I mean it is still March (3/26 when I started this post & now it is a snowy 4/6) and either would be fashionable... but there is grass to see, and so my thoughts flutter off to the dream of a fairy tale flower garden, and a bountiful victory garden, replete with tomatoes to enjoy right off of the vine, warmed by the mid-day sun. Wishing I had inherited that wonderful green thumb gene from my grandmother & mother.
This dream coupled with the memories of their gardens' abundance of sight and scents and tastes, spurs me on to visit my local nurseries, where I can be spied wandering about seemingly in a dream state, smiling at the various flowers and seedlings. To the casual observer, I probably look like any other gardener. Little do they know, that among these young healthy plants, I am picking my next victim! (not intentionally, its more of a reckless endangerment scenario, but I'm working on it)
Craft Show Season: wherein we shall enjoy the craft show carnie camp reunion(s), replete with hugs and sharing and stories...
