With the whole Christmas rush, husband’s two trips away from home this month, Solstice, Super New Moon around the corner, I am getting frayed & tired on many levels. I feel under PRESSURE at this time of the year–from family, my fiber work, society in general. It’s time to smell the roses…
the night air…and…
For one minute, walk outside
Stand there in silence,
Look up at the sky
How amazing life is.
Today, I decide to CHOOSE for me.
It is brave to follow my own path when everyone around me is following the norm.
But, the NORM does not fit or resonate with me. It hurts me incredibly to lie to myself just to keep up appearances.
I am dropping the mask and say YES or NO as appropriately. I will continue with my day as though this were any other time of year.
Do you feel a big weight lifted off you? Okay, I’m right there…with you. Love to all ♥
Shown lace is Tulip Dream, modified from The Sock Report, a perfect heavenly match with this yarn…glorious 50% Silk/50% cashmere fingering weight yarn, bordered temporarily with Debbie Bliss Party Angel (Super Kid Mohair, Silk, and Metalized Polyester) so I may wear it while spinning up 2-ply yarn to finish. My most-prized composition/knit of the year! ♥¸.°´° ♥.¸¸.•°´°▪♥ღ♥
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
