Well, it’s been awhile….but something just sparked a flame in me that I need to get back to this thing called blogging. It has been three years since my last post (I had to confess) and lots has happened….a Fantastic trip to Italy, another one to beautiful Sedona and Santa Fe, trip to beautiful Destin, FL, lots of interesting things at work have developed, I moved to a new place that I really like a lot, and the list goes on. I have had my struggles and there have been some days that I really don’t want to relive….but many more blessings than I can even count.
I have wanted to come back to this blog space many times; but didn’t seem to have a focus of just what I might talk about here. This is the eve of a New Moon…black moon I think they call this one and Mercury in Retrograde is ending….suppose to be a good time to throw your intentions to the Universe and start something new that you’ve been wanting to do for a while.
I think I now have something that I will enjoy sharing and something that at least a few of you out there might be interested in hearing about from time to time. It’s called playing in the clay….or that’s what I call it….pottery making is what others might call it. It’s something that I have wanted to return to for quite some time and have finally made it happen. I am a member at one of the local pottery studios and have been passionately enjoying the opportunity for the last couple of months. I have made pottery in the past….but this time it seems like a whole new experience for some reason. I seem to have that feeling of inspiration every time I put my hands in the clay. Soft chimes ring in my head, I smile a lot and all is good with the world during those moments of clay making!! I wanted to get back to it because of the relaxation and enjoyment that it offers….but I am finding that I have to discipline myself to not let it become an obsession. I often say that I’m just going to finish up this one little section….and then, several pots or tiles later, and the clock is striking 2am!! Going to sleep then is difficult because so many ideas of what to do next are going through my head.
