4.5mm Isn’t Very Funny

Last week, I gathered all these items I had around the house with the plan to create a Spring Table in my dining room.  It was going to be a symphony of perfection with some high notes and some low notes.  Monday was going to be the day to work on it, but since I had just finished a very busy week returning from an art retreat and working on a niece’s wedding, I decided to wait until the next day.  My beautiful spring table creation would wait one more day.  As I readied myself for a cozy and relaxing evening cuddling on the sofa with my remote and Daisy, I felt a twinge in my side.  Very rapidly the twinge became a major annoyance, and I couldn’t get comfortable.  Walking around, trying to work it out, I realized something was pretty wrong.

Nurture Your Creative Seed Art Retreat

It has been almost two weeks since Nurture your creative seed, the art retreat which I will forever think of as one of the defining moments in my life.  The decision to fly across the country for a few days to attend a retreat without knowing a single person, seemed ridiculously indulgent and harebrained. Indeed, there were whispers and sometimes roars of doubt that I battled once sensibility was discarded and the determination to go, just go, was the chosen path.

Little Girl, Remember This

I remember taking this picture like it was yesterday.  If you stay with Aunt Teresa,
there will be wildflowers picked, placed in your hair, and pictures taken.
