And months later


Lets see:
1. I had surgery on my back on November 4th
2. I had an amazing experience of healing after surgery when I truly felt all the healing energy of people's best wishes. It sounds woo-hoo, I know, but I did and I was grateful for it.
3. Stated back to work on November 24th.
4. Went to NM for Thanksgiving to be with family-was a sweet trip.
5. Our house is under construction for the last re-model.
6. Christmas ambushed me this year again and I am not ready.
7. And most of all, I am trying to find my way as an artist for the zillionth time.
I have stopped journaling and I really need to start again. It was such a huge force in my life and it was guaranteed "making" time as soon as I got up in the morning. I am not making mosaics, but I am saving wood from our construction project for future mosaics. I have been making quite a lot of found object jewelry. I gave most of it as gifts.
So, my promise to myself is to journal today and blog tomorrow.

Hi Kate! Merry Christmas :)

Glad the back surgery went well and that you are mended.

I've been thinking for awhile about starting a small group of local creative folk to meet periodically (maybe once a month) to talk about new work, spur each other on, etc. If I make it a new year's resolution I might actually get it started.. Interested?

Hi Kate,
Once the new semester simmers down a bit I'll plan a small gathering. If you know someone else who would be interesting and interested...let me know.

Here's something happening at UF in early Feb that looks kind of interesting: http://www.cba.ufl.edu/fire/entrepreneurship/cei/jumpstart.asp
