I haven't been much of a blogger while feeling my way through sooooo much life, love and loss these past months. Challenging is hardly word-enough to describe events since the dog pack attack last spring. Grief is healthier felt than oppressed. I have cried buckets of tears over the loss of my mother and Cliff. I have been scared to the point of puking in attempt after attempt to navigate the horrific pot-hole-ridden road of PTSD. I have not created much of anything in the studio but I have lived so much outside the studio. I got married.
I managed the emotional task of sorting through the myriad of things left behind by mom and Cliff.
The list actually goes on and on but the point I want to share is that now and then I thought of you...! Honest. You entered my mind after many of the beautiful, funny, interesting, news-worthy moments (which have been plenty). I have so much to share!!! Grace and Gumption have stood by my side during crises after crises. Thank goodness for Grace and Gumption, they team up to point me in a colorful direction or paint a crazy-beautiful skyscape or hang a fat oozing moon or tickle my senses or slide a random bit of beauty and lots of love into moments just when things seem unbearable. I also have Raymond, who's strength, patience and love bless me day and night. Of course there is Tala. Smile-inducing energetic little bugger who entices me to pull on hiking boots or running shoes even when my body and mind don't want to.
Meanwhile, I just want to say hello. I'm back on the blog...
