Taking a Break

You may have noticed a significant absence from my postings lately, not that consistent blogging has ever been a strength.

My amazing mother is nearing the end of a long struggle with leukemia, so my focus right now is on enjoying the time we have together and spending time with my family, especially during the holiday season.

Creating for me is usually a way to manage the stresses of everyday life, but right now I seem to be frozen, even for that. I am acutely aware of the changing of the season as the plants in the garden start to die back after a spectacular summer. My faith in Mother Nature assures me that there will be life again in the spring. But, right now, like my garden, I need to retreat and rest. And, kitty tickles. I need those too đŸ˜ș.
