what a difference a day makes




Did you ever have words inside you that had to get out? i mean HAD TO GET OUT? I was just in the midst of finishing up this pendant, thinking about this amazing day, listening to my just-arrived-from-Amazon Anna Nalick cd, which I highly recommend, by the way, when I had to stop soldering and start writing. For quite a while now I've been paying close attention to my intuition, higher self, subconscious mind...whatever word you choose to use...and today it's telling me, screaming at me, to pay attention, remember this day and the events that occurred to cause the moments in time to come together just as they did. I wont go into details, but an over-crowded chiropractic office, my decision to not sit and wait, but to come home for a while instead, and go back later....how 5 minutes made all the difference in the world, though I still don't understand exactly what kind of difference, but I know it did...all the little parts that made up the whole of this afternoon is nothing short of amazing. Most of this may not make a lot of sense, but if you've every had this kind of synchronicity happen to you, you know exactly what I mean...I guess more than anything I wanted to write this so that I will have a record of this day, the day i met my new neighbors, the day i made a new friend...

rainy days and cats

Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs
should relax and get used to the idea.
- Robert A. Heinlein





It’s a cloudy rainy day here in my neck o’North Carolina today, and I LOVE IT. I will choose rain and clouds over blue sky and sunshine any day. I would love to live in an area that gets rain more days of the year than not, but that isn’t very good weather for golfing, so the husband wont consider it. So I enjoy it when I am able to. I don’t know why I love it so….maybe because the trees and everything in nature look so different in the rain. Buildings, houses look different. Even people look different….scurrying to get in the door, in the car….no standing around outside doors or sitting on benches on rainy days. No perky fitness walkers trotting up and down the sidewalk outside my office during lunchtime…no sireeee. I’ve had friends I haven’t heard from in ages call me up on rainy days to say they were reminded of me, knowing how much I love the rain. I like that…another reason to like the rain…who knows, maybe now you will think of me when it rains too

original since 1966


Last night I dreamed of several old friends, most of whom I haven’t been in touch with for years. In my dream they all came to visit me as a group, but in reality they don’t know each other, some of them even live in different states. Some were doing well, some were not, and some were going through the same ole shit. I’ve never been good at dissecting my dreams and figuring out what my higher/inner self is trying to communicate through them, but I do believe dreams are a big part of ourselves, and that we would learn a lot if we paid more attention to them, so I try to do that. It has definitely been a week in which friends have been at the center of my life, which isn’t always the case with me since I tend to be a more solitary soul. And just last evening was my monthly book group meeting. I so enjoy those ladies and their humor & wisdom…I love the feeling I’m left with by just being in the company of other women…it’s a feeling hard to explain, but I’m sure a lot of you know what I mean…most every month I leave them carrying this collective energy with me, and I deeply appreciate it. So I know my dream about friends was for a reason, had some sort of message for me….maybe that I need to make more time for friends…that I need to be more social, even when it’s my nature not to be? I’m sure I’ll keep mulling it over, because that is also my nature, so maybe more insight will come later. Meanwhile I’m off to order the next book, but I do highly recommend the book I just finished, The Devil in the White City …..a truly amazing read….check it out.

Oh, and that pendant is about to be listed in the shop....it is a custom order with your year, your colors, in your choice of chunky square or chunky round...or plain square glass, or 1.5" beveled square glass...how's that for choices?

macro puss


This little cutie keeps watch over me while I'm soldering and making a mess at my art table.....

anyway...today I have been surrounded by funny smart beautiful goddesses both in real life and virtual life. I had the most fun night out with the girls I've had in ages...thanks Carmella and Tina!!

And I am thrilled beyond words to be a part of this new web space that suzi blu put together! Over to the left, underneath my Etsy shop announcement, is a link to this place I am talking about...you must check it out! I've never been too into those "social" websites, and haveing long lists of friends, etc., but these are all fellow art goddessess, my people for god's sake!! I am loving it and can't wait to learn more about these women, and share with them, and create with them...it's f#@kin' fabulous!

Oh, and I added a couple of pendants to the shop just a minute ago....
