Them and me.

gemmies, canon digital rebel xt

These are the friends I've been playing with lately. Don't you just want to dive into this sea of color? Sometimes I wish myself teeny tiny so I could jump in and submerge myself, climbing from tray to tray. So, I suppose that makes me not only a tree hugger but a bead hugger.

I have felt such a lightness within my being the last few days. Something has shifted. My head and heart feel more clear and I am able to focus more than I have in a long time. I think in a myriad of ways, lessons are being learned in my life and I am evolving into a person that is truly paying attention to them. I feel open to the Potter's hand. It might be painful in the process but I can see the beauty that is forming.

I suppose I am like a potter to my gems too. Transforming them from a tiny bead into a gem masterpiece. Perhaps that is why I feel so connected to them lately. We're in this process together...them and me.

Here are a few loves I've discovered and want to share:

Zach Braff's website (I so admire his taste in music, as well as his movie producing skills)

Regina Spektor and her songs Fidelity and Hotel Song

Acai Bowls

My dear friend Susannah's Faiku's

My marmie. I haven't just discovered her of course, but I have discovered that I still need her deeply. She called me last night and her words rocked me like a baby in her arms. I've been trying so hard to be strong for my family and I realized, that I don't need to be...I can just be.

So inspiring. I am patiently awaiting that day when I feel the lightness of being you speak of. It's coming soon, I hope... (patience, patience...)

The thing about beads that I like is the feel of them, more than the color. I just like to take a handful of them or two and just let them fall through my fingers. Beads are coolly tactile.

You just gave me an idea for a piece, Boho! Ever-inspirational, you are!

Word verification: umeypox! You Me Pox? I'm on a roll today!

Do you make your own beads? Ive made two before haha. my friend Jodi has her own entertainment business... and she has a studio in her basement. She recently took some art classes that taught glass bead making .. she loved it.. and is really good now. She gave me a lesson on how to make a few simple beads... was fun! but takes a lot of patients and time :-)

I'm so glad you're feeling better. Baby hunger is a painful place to be, so hard on the heart. The beads are beautiful - I've just started making a few bit and pieces myself and oooohh, I do love those pretty colors.
