another cricket filled night. and i had applesauce for dinner. last night my parents took home a bag of apples from the tree that bends so low and precariously at the studio. we often wonder if it will survive another season. but it always bears delicious apples, however mishapen and wormy they may be. people pick them as they walk past. and i see kids of all ages walking down the sidewalk gnawing on them. and tonight my mother came to the house with a mason jar of applesauce they had made this afternoon from the apples. with the added punch of raspberries....... delicious and beautiful.
today was full and abundant in good discussion and directives. business planning is something that can sometimes get left behind at my little studio for the whirlwind of creating is always first and foremost in my mind. but i have good people in my life who step in and help me move forward. i am grateful. recently, i was also interviewed for one of the local papers, and the resulting piece was a beautiful and insightful portrayal of what my studio is all about. here is the link to the story. the people in my life who support what i do and urge me forward are greatly appreciated.
so tonight, i sit with tennis muted on the television, my family in bed, the windows wide open to the crickets, feeling very fortunate.
