Putting Things On Hold

Well, here I am the night before surgery. Tomorrow will be the start of a new normal for a little while. I won't be able to paint or create as I'm having a repair of my rotator cuff - my dominant arm, my painting arm! I will spend this healing time in reading and meditation. Later, physical therapy starts. My art books, magazines and spiritual material are set up and waiting for me to peruse. I have already had many well wishes and calls, texts, etc. I have the best friends and family support! My kids and grand kids called today; isn't face time wonderful? I love it!

Yes, I know, it has been months since I wrote on this blog... and it will be months before I'm back again. My Instagram and Facebook will be quiet. You won't see any changes to my website as there will be no new art work to upload for months to come. I will be reading and yes, scrolling, learning and growing, and taking time to enjoy long chats and tea with friends. I do plan to participate in three scheduled festivals this fall and winter as my friends and family are pitching in to work my booths...they are all just awesome - I'm very blessed!

So...I will be back as fast as I can! After all, I will have lots of creative energy after reading all of those art books, right? In the meantime, I challenge you to go out and create. Write, dance, sing, photograph, build, teach, paint and just have fun! Do it for me and do it for yourself: I look forward to hearing about your creative endeavors!
