June

Well, I missed writing to you in June… but in a nutshell, it was a month of adjustments, new rhythms, trials and tribulations. I’ve been gainfully unemployed for about a month and a half now, and I’m still struggling to find the path forward. Well, that’s not quite true. I’ve been casting stones forward, trying to build the path in front of me, but have yet to see what holds and what slips away.

I am endlessly grateful for the people I’ve met and connected with through my art. The time I’ve been able to spend with my new tufting machine has been incredibly rewarding and the learning curve of working on the same thing everyday has been blowing my mind wide open.

The future is still foggy as heck, but I’m looking forward to it. So I guess the theme for June turned out to be….

conviction

Having faith in my skills, knowledge and the community and network of beautiful people I’ve created has buoyed my spirits every time they start to sink low. I know things will work out, one way or the other… it’s the waiting around in a holding patter that’s driving me crazy, and that’s just normal for me.
