It is Mid March and I always get the winter blues around now.
Funny how life is cyclical!
I am tired of the cold and the unusual snow we have had
here in Virginia Beach!
Bronchitis has kicked my butt for weeks.
I want the softness and renewal of springtime.
I guess feeling restless comes along with it.
I know I am embarking on
new phases in my life
and I am still trying to sort it all out.
I am letting go of things, seeking stillness,
creating like crazy,
writing more and more,
yet still feeling restlessness.
Writing always heals the heart,
my artwork soothes the restlessness.
Perhaps this is what 56 year olds walk through,
a time of transition.
As I step toward spring,
I look forward to freshness of life,
nature renewing itself,
and the birds singing happily,
Lessons I can learn for myself.
I am heading to New York City next week,
just for a short trip,
but so look forward to connecting with friends,
walking the busy streets,
heading to the museums,
with my precious friend
visiting Dick Blick Art Store,
and I can't wait to sees
NEW YORK always welcomes me,
and I love the hustle bustle of the city!
Perfect timing and a perfect place to get away!
I am looking at New York with creative eyes,
there is so much inspiration there.
I am sure I will have lots to write about when I return.
Feelings can get in one's way,
confuse the heart, but also open doors
at the same time.
Funny how that works,
so until my next post . . .
Love with all your heart,
Live life passionately,
Seek out moments to grow just a little more
