And It's Beautiful...

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart.
Helen Keller

And I finally resumed some "normal journeying". For the first time in my life I went to an RV park. I had gone with my harp teacher as we both had repairs to be done on our harps in San Luis Obispo. We stayed in Morro Bay on the beach. It was relaxing, creative and insightful.

For three days I basked in the sights and sounds of the ocean and its occupants. Took an incredible amount of photographs and just fell in love again with the whole process. It seems as if I have been so far from it. To discover a lost love...it's beautiful....

Old is New

And now we welcome the new year, full of things that have never been.
Rainer Maria Rilke

I haven't written in awhile. Life like it often does became busy. It has been in a good way. I've been very involved with continuing my exploration into the fiber arts. I was taught the beginnings of sewing, knitting and embroidery years ago but never went any further. In the past few months I have revived these old skills and have worked on making them new again.

With looking at my career and where I'm at with it, I'm also trying to bring the old into the new. Repurposing or upcycling if you will. So I'm trying to find ways to keep an income, but have some passion and love for what it requires to bring in that income.

Finally I received positive news that the breast cancer has not reoccurred. Six month post surgery blood tests, exams and imaging studies show I'm remaining healthy.

The above photo was taken yesterday when the sun hit my shower. It showed a beauty of form that I didn't expect and taught me yet again to look at the familiar with new eyes.

So things are pretty good in that the wagon wheel of life just keeps turning, going on and I'm happy for it.
