Rituals


I survived the weekend! The Baldwin Park show went great. I was busy all day and got to talk to lots of nice people and Gena and I got to hang out and catch up. Saturday started at 6:00 a.m. and didn't end until 1:30 a.m. I sat down for 20 minutes to eat during that time, and the rest was go, go, go. It has been a long time since I have been that EXHAUSTED!! But I feel great. I am surprised and proud that I still have the determination to get the job done. Whatever that job might be. Even if the job is setting up and taking down my booth by myself. I also realized that I AM that type of person. I think I kinda forgot that. Somewhere along the line I started to believe that going the extra mile wasn't a good thing. I am amazed at what is surfacing for me, during my daily walks. It is the ritual of it. Somehow it is opening up my spirit and somehow it is bringing all of the crazy down a notch. I feel like things are balancing, lining up, preparing.


I'm glad I am feeling so balanced because I have 2 more art shows in the next 3 weeks. The good thing is the ideas are flowing, which after a period of being blocked is like magic popping in the air. And I am even more inspired as several of the new pieces sold, so I feel like I'm on the right track.

  1. I totally understand on the walking thing; I've been doing it in the evenings and it's gotten to the point I look forward to that time every day, just me and the doggie walking around the neighborhood - it's amazing how therapeutic it is!
    Also - I changed when I'm going to FL to the following week so that I'd have more time to be with Sister; do you know if you'll be around the week of the 30th - April 4th? I would love to see you!
