It’s so quiet. When I think of the past holidays, I think of the frantic running around and doing. Shopping, waking up at night remembering who I forgot to get a gift for, making Christmas cards, baking cookies….. Then the rush and (often cheerful) chaos of the days themselves. But not this year. This year, I’ve done less than I’ve ever done before. And there’s a quiet, a peacefulness that has surrounded these past few days before Christmas. Maybe we brought it home with us from our trip to Vermont.
My time for selling has stopped for the season, email is light, even my blog feels quiet, things seems to be winding down. And I’m realizing this is the feeling I’ve always craved around this holiday. I’ve talked about peace for the season, written it in cards, needle pointed it into wall hangings, sung it in Christmas Carols, but I’ve never experienced it I am now.
It was with this feeling that I went into my studio this morning, after not working for days. And this is what I came up with:
truth is beauty
How does it feel To Speak Your truth
Grounded On Earth
I trust the Stars
