Today there is an abundance of sun and warmth as the fourth opens here in a blast of summertime glory. A light breeze blows across the yard, birds are singing and the lavender plants are wafting their delicate scent past the plastic lawn chairs sitting on the side deck. I have been up since 5:30 working away in the studio, making inventory for the shop; heart pendants, crystal earrings and inexpensive dangly charms. I have always referred to this work as " regular ". It is not the exploration and play of materials I am doing when I do my favorite studio work. I am not really being creative as this is all work I have done in the past and continue to do on a regular basis. Don't get me wrong, it is all original work, my work, my designs, my creativity but it is the production part of me and not nearly as rewarding as making something from scratch.
I am on the verge of something in my life and I can not quite figure out what it is. Maybe a change is coming, a journey could be on the horizon, maybe I need romance and mystery and to reinstate in myself a lust for life!
I am meandering this morning and I need to get on with the day not to mention my morning walk so I will leave you with some pictures of jewelry I took in Utah with the beautiful desert rocks as a back drop. Happy - boom boom - fourth!!
