Hello…and goodbye! (or…Goodbye…and hello!)


Life is certainly never boring, and while I don’t ever think life is “in the way,” life certainly gets busy. New opportunities unfold, and old paths get overgrown…or outgrown…or are no longer needed.

Life is good…very good for me…so, when I say I am in the process of winding down the studio, please don’t think that it is a sad thing.

The studio’s cycle is coming to a close. That’s just how some things roll in my world. They start. They stop. Their finale yields space…space for which new things can take root and bloom.

Today, I migrated my creative outlet to WEAFTInG, which will be a happy repository for all the things that interest me(Wine, Entertaining, Art, Food, Travel, Interiors, n Gardening).

I invite you to follow the new blog or find WEAFTInG on Facebook.

Thank you for support of Lucky Ginger Studio. I hope we can continue our conversation together on WEAFTInG.

The arm goes cold


, , ,

Here’s a link to a wonderful article about author/Nobel Prize winner Gabriel Garcia Marquez, who passed away recently.

Best quote: “When I finished one book, I wouldn’t write for a while,” he said in 1966. “Then I had to learn how to do it all over again. The arm goes cold; there’s a learning process you have to go through again before you rediscover the warmth that comes over you when you are writing.”

If you don’t use your creative gifts regularly, things really can get “cold”. I notice that when I come off a photography “gap,” it takes a while for my eye to loosen up. When I’m traveling, the difference between “how” I see on Day 1 varies greatly from Day 7 or 8.

Anyone else in the same boat?
