morning comes with new colors
This weekend was a bit of a disaster. All the reasons that I have always refused to do first year shows played out in epic proportions.
But, lesson learned, or reaffirmed, and we’ll just leave it at that.
Today is a new day, tomorrow is a new month. May is one of my favorites, mostly because of my garden. My garden which is a complete and utter mess right now, but at the same time, a blank canvas just waiting to be painted.
We have decided to cut back on our jewelry shows this year, mainly because so many shows have become too hard to handle alongside full-time jobs. But for me, a small part of that decision was also because of my garden. I have missed it, too much, these past few summers.
So our next show won’t be until September.
It was a big decision, a tough decision, but also, a necessary one. This year I am looking to find more balance in my life.
In January, I declared it my year of discarding. And I meant not only possessions, but the things that weren’t working, the habits and choices and the biting off of more than I can chew.
It’s time for me to slow down, at least a little. Remove some of the stress and fill that space with flowers. Birds. Blue sky overhead.
Listening. To the world and to myself.
Slowly inching my way down a new path, one that allows me time to stop and smell the roses, appreciate the sunrise, read a book in the shade on a summer Sunday.
Who knows where this will take me?
I’m looking forward to finding out.
