Reflective reading

Welcome to November 2011, everyone!

October was reflective for me because it marks the anniversary of my sabbatical decision last year. I am very happy about this year and all the explorations, surprises and growth opportunities it has brought.

Interestingly, an opportunity I was looking for last year has arisen now, so it is doubly important to evaluate my goals. I also see affirmations in the path I am on now, which indicates all options are wide open to me. It seems sometimes we are particularly preoccupied with whether to move forward or retrace some steps in life.

Meanwhile, there are a few exhibits to attend this week as I explore the local artistic market more. I’m also reading a lot about social media to get my head around an online strategy that suits me.

Maria Sybilla Merian is still on my mind as well as I play with butterfly assemblages in the studio.

I am now taking custom orders for holiday cards and gifts. Send me a message if you are interested in ordering Christmas/New Year’s cards or want to gift a special wall vignette to someone.
