After a two year lapse I am back to blogging. We moved house, down - sized, removed excess stuff including metalworking materials and tools etc. I also decided it was time to give up enameling after 45 years. It was an easy decision and timing was perfect. Life requires that we give up that which is no longer so important, but this sometimes takes a while because we tend to hold on to what is familiar, even if it becomes a burden. Lately, I have enjoyed just playing with watercolors, drawing intricate designs with lots of circles, and making handmade books. these books have several purposes; to accommodate my small drawings, poems, and especially a vivid, inspiring dream I had a few months ago. I will address these in later posts. For now it is good to get back to the blog, pay attention to the quiet whispers of soul and listen deeply.
I much enjoy the calm and quietness of making one mark at a time without much preplanning except for choosing a color palette.
