Changing of the Seasons

Well...it is hard to imagine that fall is upon us once again and I haven't posted here since spring. I have had good intentions but this year has been a difficult one with 3 deaths in a period of 6 months for our family. It has taken its toll both physically and mentally. It has been a time of much reflection.
As I watch the leaves starting to turn and feel the warmth of summer fading into a cool fresh nip in the air I am reminded how the seasons come and go and that life is like the changing seasons. We hope for days of warmth and sunshine, but along lifes path we encounter those days of cold and unexpected weather.  All we can do is try to weather the storms the best we can and hope for those beautiful days to shine down upon  us once more.

I feel a new sense of self, an awakening perhaps after seeing so much pain and suffering. I have come to realize that my art has been a strong force in the healing process. It has always been a place where I feel the most at ease and content. Little did I realize just how much it would help me to refocus and get back to the place I needed to be after what feels like such a long absence. It has been a driving force in my life and I can't imagine how life would be without it.

So... I am anxious to get back to work and share some new things with you. Thank you to all of my faithful followers. I hope I can bring some new and exciting things to share with you this year and as each beautiful leaf falls to ground I take notice and appreciate the small gifts life offers us everyday. I hope you will too!

After a long time away myself this summer, it was such a joy seeing your post, Marcie. But, to hear that your heart has been through so much hurt this year hurts mine as well.
