my niece angela, canon digital rebel xt
I had an amazing time with my kindred all weekend. There was a magical energy flowing around our home and I definitely feel her absence as I write this. Our kitty Amber is wandering around with a pout, already missing her cuddles and smell. She slept all day in the spot where Angela laid down each night to dream her sweet dreams.
I love how the age between her and I feels less apart with each year and that a deep friendship is being nurtured. It's very easy to be together, to get each other, to ease into our moods and feel safe with one another. Her presence was a delightful diversion from the overwhelm I have been feeling in regards to shifts taking place within my business.
Speaking of... I am feeling the need to take a bit of a blog break. Perhaps just a few weeks as I prepare for the opening of my store early November. There is much to do. I find that I get easily distracted and lost within the beautiful world that is our sharings, so I will have to force myself to stay focused on my tasks at hand.
You know how it feels good to lay in your bed when you wake up in the morning and stretch all of your leg, arm, stomach and neck muscles? I need to take time to stretch my creative muscles in regards to my gig. Stretch my jewelry ideas, my pastels, my bravery and my belief that it is indeed truly happening. My dream. It's just around the corner.
So, while I may not be able to read your blogs as much as I'd like or do a post every day, know that you are all in my heart. You have all become an integral part of this journey for me.
It is time for me to stretch myself and reach for this dream.
