So, having gotten through one of the worse years of my life, and now starting the second half of 2011 I have decided that it is time to explore all of the wonder filled things that are out there in the world as we know it.
I have just moved into a lovely little apartment and find myself living alone for the first time in my life. While I miss the constant ruckus of small and large voices, the quiet is also peaceful.
As I write this I am looking out my living room window, listening to the sound of the wind blowing through my wind chimes. The sky is a soft blue and the green of the leaves makes a dramatic counterpoint against the sky. A cedar wax wing sits on a pine bough looking curiously at the chime as it sings softly in the breeze.
I have hung many of my art works, some my own creations and some the gifts of others. I have put the key elements of my studio in place, and spent most of today sewing and planing future projects. The cable man commeth and so now I can connect with the world during those times when I wish to.
All things considered, a day to feel joyful about.
