I have a love/hate relationship with the re-entry process. Since I travel often it’s an on-going relationship. Depending on where I have come from it’s often very tough to leave. That’s the case in the deep winter when I return from any place warm, much less Hawaii – to the frigid north east, my home base. This winter has been a particularly diffiicult one which is not news to you. I live in an old farm house with not great insulation and windows that rattle with the wind, so the drafty house is- well, let’s just say different from where I was staying in Maui with a sweet garden and beautiful pagoda in back. Beginning my day with loading wood from the porch, trudging out through the snow in below 0 degree weather to empty the ashes before starting the fire again takes a chunk of time. In Maui all I had to do was get my gear ready for my morning painting session. It did rejuvenate me, but it hasn’t taken long to get a winter fatigue from the snow, which is falling as I write.
Planning my Spring events which include a trip to Florida gets me excited. I’m looking forward to my first co-creation with Sharron Britton of High Springs Emporium where we are going to combine her knowledge of crystals with an art-making class. If you’re in the area (High Springs Florida) please stop by.
I’m off to shovel snow. Be well, till next time, Melissa
