hello dear friends!
oh, i can't believe that it's been almost a month since my last post.
i have thought about you guys a lot
and thought about writing..
(oh so many things to write about..too many maybe..)
if you could see behind the curtain..you'd find 6 or 7 started,
but unfinished little postings.
the past few weeks have been full
with lots of thinking and feeling
and not a lot of saying.
it was a windy month full of sadness and change.
where i just let my thoughts float and fly away on the breeze..
lots of reflection
and letting go.
i said goodbye to my dear old sweet kitty, flipina.
my little girl who had been my pillow and song-partner for 15 years.
(she would always come and sing next to me whenever i'd sing or cry..
she especially loved 'black bird' by the beatles..you know the one)
i said goodbye to my dear aunt as well.
my aunt who lived in guadalajara
and taught us how to make fresh tamales each christmas dinner.
who loved color so much and is probably the reason i ever started making jewelry.
there was a lot of sadness
and so much beauty in it all too.
there was lots and lots of reminiscing
and reliving so many memories and so much love.
there's a quiet beauty in tucking those sweet memories in safely into our hearts
feeling thankful for them
and knowing they'll always be there.
looking at the explosion of spring flowers everywhere
(is it just me, or are there more blooms this year??)
has me thinking about the nature of change.
seeing buds popping
flowers blooming in all of their glory
and then fading and dropping off so that the trees can grow.
it's an amazingly gorgeous process
when you think about it.
life is change, i suppose.
and i think i'm okay with that.
wishing you a lovely wednesday.
see you friday.
