OK it is 2015 and with January comes the joy of reflection and setting new goals for the year. I love this time. The holidayra past, in the dark months, I settle in for a long winters nap; sleeping, dreaming, reflecting, creating and planning. I want to be more present here on the blog, so I have concocted this idea. Commit to a simple little haiku a week. it forces the first step. get online! then it forces a moment of creative expression and reflection.
that's all. Here we go.
must be art, or ceramic related.
the last line of this week becomes the first line of next week.
3 lines of 5-7-5 format
the rest is magic.
imperfection, it is said
that's where beauty lies.
"This is a day that the Lord has made. Rejoice and be glad."
Tthat just about sums up where I have come to in the past five years since my last post. it has been quite a journey and it continues. I again find my joy and peace in the creative process and the studio.. Now, however, it is mainly that and so much less about the marketplace, but more about the quality of my time, my moment my connection to the sacred world we have been given.
I invite you to join with me here as I document the days with gratitude.
I love playing in the mud and the trees. Snow covered land and stars sparkling above. I enjoy the plethora of diamonds that sparkle on the water and again on my snow filled hillsides. I can't decide if it's best to narrow my focus or mix it up. I have always struggled with duality. I enjoy skiing or a walk in the woods. I have an Aussie puppy and an aging Jack Russell. I love my Finnish Husband, Reijo, solitude, and God.
