I've been a bit restless lately...trying to practice taking it one day at a time...and it's easier to achieve that state some days and harder on other days. I find that making something (beaded, photographed, written) is very meditative and often helps to calm me down, but it doesn't work all the time. Probably nothing will work all the time, I just need to keep practicing...
So yesterday instead of getting any beadwork done, I found some old pieces...ones I'd finished but didn't want to pass along from some reason or another and some that hadn't been quite finished when I abandoned them.
I also went into the garden with my camera to look at some flowers and take a few photos to share. Sumi is making the most of the shade...it must get quite warm with her black fur soaking up the rays!
This week is filled with meetings with friends, art fairs and extra hours at the gallery and I will practice enjoying every second of it.
