The past week I have been packing all of my favorite little vases, paintings, rocks, sheets, scraps of paper- you name it. Everything I own now lives in a storage unit where I hope it won't get lonely. It seems unfair that things I love so much have to be all by themselves. But I have managed to orchestrate life so that I can spend the winter (or?) in Belize. You all have seen my ongoing love affair with that place. So this year, after five years in the making I am taking it all down south. A winter of painting, creating and sinking into island life. (which is why I won't be at Artfest this year- for those who are curious as to why.) We'll see how I do. I will be focusing on hand work and canvases and I'm looking forward to a whole new creative rhythm. I'll be leaving the beginning of Sept- but will keep the blog alive and well! And for anyone else who has been keeping a special place in your back pocket I encourage you to make a leap of faith too! It seems to work every time!
