i'm not really sure what's going on with me these days, but i've been feeling more peace and quiet bliss than i have felt in a long, long time. yesterday evening as i worked here on the computer by my front expanse of windows, i was touched by the way that the lingering last light of the day seemed to seep into the old blue mason jar and gather there, captured twilight resting in blue upon my table top. perfect, says the glass. perfect. and that's how it felt, sitting there with the day finally cooling down, with the breeze brushing my shoulders and saying here. here you go - a little something to soothe the end of your long day.
this morning i woke earlier than usual, as i seem to be doing more and more each passing day, and stumbled in here to sit and read my mail with a cup of hot tea. i'd been working yesterday, on up to the end of daylight, photographing the trinkets and ornamental jewels that i'd assembled for the past few days. something about the way that the new light crept in over them struck a chord in my heart; something made me stop and get the camera out all over again. the light was magical, in the early morning cool; it was gentle and soft, as soothing as had been the breeze from the end of yesterday. this will most likely be the last batch of jewelry i list (eight pieces, i think?) in my etsy shop before i head off to ecuador on The Grand Adventure; as much as i'd love to sit and create in the midst of this huge blast of inspiration that i'm experiencing, there are incredible worlds to explore that beckon to me from beyond, way beyond, the studio. what you see here, i've quietly created after walking through cool morning forests, under the protective canopy of beautiful trees. these woods, these forests, these trees treat me ever so kindly, can you see? xo
