Hot, it’s hot. It’s been hot for days, but I think it just hit me. The grass is turning brown and is sharp on my bare feet. The animals aren’t moving, just standing or laying around in the shade. I could learn from them. But I have a list, a wonderful list of people who want streaming pillows and wall hangings. These last two I’ve done are from April and I’m just getting to them now. It’s good people are patient.
Seeing Set Me Free is for Cindy. She’s seeing more and more after eye surgery, watching her dreams come true, her world light up. Cindy has been buying my work for a long time. She’s one of those women who changed her life, and found a good man. I’m finding there are so many women out there who have done the same.
A few years ago I didn’t believe there were any nice men in the world, and I had a dog who agreed with me. Frieda doesn’t like men, I would say with a smile. I couldn’t help it, I felt so safe with a dog who felt the way I did. A big, strong, scary dog to protect me.
But when I changed, my world changed. Now, so many women write to me (usually it’s the second marriage, after they learned) that they have good men in their lives. And I believe it, because I live it. And I know it makes the world a better place.
I didn’t get to finish Cindy’s wall hanging today. Just a small space to fill, but I didn’t want to rush it, I don’t have the energy and I finally listened to the animals, soon I’ll be laying around, reading my book in the shade.
