i have a new home! c’mon over!

January 13, 2011

it’s going to be a dark day…literally.

rain all day.

looking like dusk…all day (and i don’t do dusk well).

it’s impossible to take a good photo in my house during days like this,

….and bright, happy photos are exactly what i need right now.

i could exercise.

i should.

target will be my only outing…for zyrtec.

because this is what NW rainy, winter days do to me.

i have to go make stuff now.

cause i said i was going to.

but before i go….

bright, happy, pictures…from another day.

ready, set….go!

i’m about to link to etsy and facebook.

draw the curtains and open the front door to my life.

even now, just writing that last line “open the front door to my life”  was intended to imply letting people in.

but as i typed, it read back….to walk out.

funny what writing does.

process, not product.

what is most difficult,

is to lose yourself in the process,

and let go of the product.

our only responsibility,

is to show up.

enjoy the show

if you must watch,

i can’t help myself,

i will perform

….a little.

i can’t not write….

i had a blog.

it had thoughts.

eventually, i felt naked.

i deleted most of it,

except for the art, the sewing, the safe things,

the productive things,

like..things you hang on your wall or gift to people,

useful things.

my time and how i spend it, is constantly scrutinized by some that do not find value  in…

staying at home

cooking meals

cleaning house



making art

being available and attentive to those who love and value me.

some need to see my product…tangible, physical objects in order to assess and determine my value.


i am happy, delighted

with my life,

with my choices,

with my spouse,

with my children,

with my family,

 with my friends.

i often wonder how heaven can even compare, i really like it here.

it won’t always be this way, i know that.

this season could end, just like that….!

but for now,

i will delight,

i will indulge,

i will fufill,

and others will benefit,

from my lack of production.
