Just thinking

Modern life? Thinking about why I continue this blog.

The inspiration I get from others' blogs, sharing sources and ideas, ability to connect and
encourage others and get the same back, these are great reasons to continue. But, I'm not
sure that a blog is the only way to do this. Artists who sell their work certainly gain from the
exposure. People with political/social goals can connect. Has the regular old garden variety
blog expressing small discoveries in daily life just become too self involved?
I've shifted my attention back to here and now. Watching the energy of making rise and ebb
in a natural cycle. Balancing my time inside/online and time outside breathing, looking
and listening. Spending more time offline with friends and animals.

Thinking about balance lately,

and spending lots of time in the studio.

Tiny book pendants, 1 1/2 inches. Micro book binding!
Filling the freezer from the garden

Planning free demos at Plantiques in Newport News.
This morning hearing the first gunshots of my least favorite time of the year...
hunting season. Why, why, why do people think this is fun?
