Cobwebs blown away I feel like I can turn the page and welcome 2014 more graciously. Semi-hibernation and heeding the deep calling to nap is my January default but that needs its own balance as I'm not actually a hedgehog burrowed deep in a pile of leaves. A couple of delicious days of snuggling in a luxury hotel and tramping the beaches when the rains abated have me opening to the possibilities of this glorious new year. I want to feel the pure joy and sense of awe I did watching these birds swoop. They ride the wind, yielding when it gusts, finding the lulls, accepting what is and being ready for opportunities that arise. Little gull you make a fine guide.
Making things helps me to make sense of my life and I love this little blog for bringing in the moments of pause along the way. Knitting was my first foray in to craft and feels like the source of my sense of myself as a creative person. If I'm not here I may be busy trying ALL the crafts, instagramming apparently ordinary things or pinning anything that stays still long enough. Just finding beauty and creativity in everyday life.
