Two weeks away did wonders.
I am back in my studio, and although I have books to get into the mail, e-mails and letters to answer, errands and errands and more errands, I still have the centered peaceful feeling I built up with those two weeks of art time.
Sometimes we just need to retreat from the world for a bit to be able to enter it again with openness, patience, gratitude.
Not having something is a wonderful way to really be grateful for it.
Loving husband, three wonderful kids, cute cuddly dog, yes, chaotic house, but full of activity and love and growth and learning.
I am happy for my life.
I hope you are, too.
