YES! YES! YES! The new studio setup is functional!
I'm not even sure what to say here...life...life...shaking my head. We began moving into this house back in January. Life hasn't been typical, but what is typical really? Living is process and this year has been devoted to the process of healing fro cancer; two rounds of chemo, at least 5 hospital stays for lung inections, lumpectomy, and now I'm winding it to a close with radiation.
I encircled myself with a few close friends on and off line and family. I had some mighty prayer warriors and continue to have on both sides of the ocean. My focus has solely been keeping my joy and my concentration has been limited, unable to read for long or process deeply beyond what was immediately before me. Here is my reading lists: Butterfly Blessings by E. Conwill-Majozo; Cell-Level Healing: The Bridge from Soul to Cell by J. Whiteley Hawkes; Holy Bible; God Bless the Child by T. Morrison; and a scattering of poems. My hands go up in surrender and praise to God.
Creating anything has only come to me in dreams. I've done NOTHING all year until a few days ago. I started methodically working through Mixed Media Potraits by P. Carriker
Today I got as far as turning on Yahnome (a new nickname for my sewing machine, Yah Know Me which is also a Janome.) Working on my nerves to actually get started. In closing, (imagine Don Cornelius as me) Peace, Love, and Joy (Soul is a given, winking at ya!)
