It's here at last, sweet beloved June.
I'm leaving in the morning for the east coast, 6 hours away, to participate in the International Encaustic Conference in Provincetown, Massachusetts. This will be my 2nd time attending and I'm starting to get excited. I haven't started packing but I'm starting to get excited.
It is soggy and cool here, not summery at all. Everyone is grumbling about the weather. But not me. I'm glad it's not too hot.
The flowers sure aren't discouraged. Soaked but not discouraged.
I would post more photos but my feet were wet so I quit shooting.
I've been on a roller coaster of work and high energy that usually comes with summer.
I'm preparing a big surprise for you that I'll unveil on my return from the conference.
Something I thought was impossible until I tried it and found out it was possible after all.
I'm taking all kinds of new risks lately; pushing myself to the edge of the cliff.
What have I got to lose? This is my one amazing life.
I'm reading Just Kids by Patti Smith. She is a brilliant writer. I am mesmerized by her story.
The book will travel with me to the east coast.
Oh yeah. So my big announcement.
Coming next week.
A bit of a stretch.
Because it's summer and I feel expansive.
And a huge thank you to everyone who has written with their congratulations on the book and the class. The best thing in the world you can do for your own happiness is to try and make someone else happy. It is brilliant the way that works. Everyone gets to shine.
Last night before yoga one of the other students said that a 114 year old man just passed who was the last remaining survivor of World War I. When asked his advice for a long life he had 2 suggestiions. He said to limit meals to twice a day and to embrace change. I've been thinking about that ever since. It sounds like excellent advice.
