Transitions


As fall begins to change the natural world around me, I realize I , too, have begun a transition. Usually at this time of year I am gearing up for seven or eight craft shows over the next couple of months, making my life very busy and chaotic. This year I have one. My life has become more manageable and peaceful. I have taken time to stroll through fallen leaves and smell the crisp fall air. I am doing more volunteer work and trying to eke out as much time with my youngest child as he readies for graduation in the spring and college next fall. Even while I create, my focus isn't on what will sell, but on what I really want to make today. I have made a list of new skills I have determined to learn and I am working on some new projects that I intend to submit for publication. All new and exciting, but without all the stress and chaos of my usual fall itinerary. I am settling into a new season of my life. I think I really like this season.

Oooohhhhhhhh I am so jealous! I want those colorful leaves and crisp air! =( I miss Maine!

Yay for you though, Pam! I wish I felt that peace! I need to take a breather...just not too deep, as my air is way too humid. =)

Carolyn-Thanks so much for stopping by. I am starting to work at being productive again and tending to some things I have neglected like my blog and blog friends! You have such a wonderful eye, I love to scroll through your blog and your collections of pictures. Sometimes we need to refresh ourselves with vistas pleasant to our eyes and soul.

Drea- Maine is not complete without our Bunny! Enjoy your short visit back "home" and maybe you should save a bottle of Maine air to take back with you! You will be grateful for Florida when January rolls around!
