With this emergence comes a heightened sense of gratitude. Gratitude for parents who love us unconditionally; gratitude for my husband who supports me when I don't even realize that I need it; gratitude for family members who reach across the miles to embrace us; gratitude for friends who love us like family, and gratitude for my customers, both individual and businesses, who tolerated my behavior when I was giving all that I had, knowing fully well that it wasn't enough.

Later has finally arrived. During the next month, I'll be moving my studio to a new location. I'll soon be surrounded by creative souls in a place that I love, with a classroom, and gallery space, and so much more. In September, there'll be a bit more routine to my schedule. While one part of me resists routines of all kinds, at my core I know my life will benefit from this change. Soon the shops and boutiques that represent my work will be fully stocked again, and I'll be creating with abandon.
My view of the future is lighter and brighter than its been in some time. It's filled with hope, and of course gratitude. Gratitude for all that has been and all that will be.
Stay tuned! It's about to get exciting, and I'm looking forward to sharing every step of it with you.
