Out of hibernation....

"Let go of the past and go for the future.
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you imagined."
Henry David Thoreau

It's been months since I've made my last post, but updating my followers and friends on this blog has played second fiddle to the long to do lists of the day....

Life has had it's share of joy and challenge these past few months, but with each new day and each moment I emerge even stronger and with a stronger sense of clarity and purpose.

My work in the studio is blossoming, probably because I took a much-needed break from it during the holidays to replenish soul and spirit. Opportunity has knocked and knocked again--and I keep eagerly answering the door. Honestly, each day feels like Christmas!

I am busy juggling life in many forms: single mother, artist, freelance writer, etc. But this is my life, and for once, I like the direction where it is headed.

I just sent more samples to Sundance for the catalog's fall/holiday books (cross your fingers that something will get in!) and my rep is putting Original Hardware designs in stores all over the West.

Meanwhile, I continue to pursue freelance writing in my "old" career (marketing for technology companies). I find the balance of using my left brain and right brain to be energizing, even though at times I find myself exhausted from the work!

Not much else to say today, except that life is good my friends.

Love has shone into my heart, opened me like a door and let the sunshine in to the cracks where it hasn't been for some time. I am open to what other doors could open for me, and yet others that may close. I look to the future without anxiety or fear or doubt.

Whatever is out there is waiting just for me, like closed hands ready to open and reveal the secret message. Today, like many days in the past few months, those closed hands have unfolded to reveal just one word: happiness.
