"The biggest mistake you could ever make is being to afraid to make one."
Doc said I had whip lash after my ski-scapade
so I have experienced what living with that feels like
I do not recommend it.
My "lovely" 14 year old that tests me beyond belief
it's as if his job is to see how much grief he can give me
the insurmountable of trouble he gets himself into is just unreal
lets just say he keeps the principle busy
this saga seams never-ending
Fog horn - the youngest (on accident) broke a full bottle of olive oil in the pantry at 6:25 am this morning- the most stressful time- rushing to take the kids to school
lets not forget the bloody mess it is to clean up broken glass and oil up spilled all over dry goods
on the floor
whilst slipping and cursing in Norwegian
every bad word I knew
with a bad case of whip lash to boot.
feeling pretty cursed.
In the meantime I have been scratching my head how to
infuse more color, variance, depth and uniqueness
to my yarns
a conundrum for months
I feel like I have been circling the drain
to scared to try something different- what if I fail???
THE FOG LIFTED!
out of no where the answer appeared with no trumpets sounding
quietly moved thru my head
At that moment all my yarn skeins saw daylight again
patiently waiting for a color bath- the beautiful assortment of dyes
pots & pans
a glorious mess was created in the kitchen
To heck with the kids
to heck with my whiplash and the olive oil
I was singing to Agnes!
and dyeing my heart out
(yeah I know that sounds weird)
blazing a new trail
Sometimes all we need is a break thru to get out of our funk
finding that creative spark and confidence (in my case)
letting everything else stay on the back burner
absorb that moment
even if fleeting
be there fully
letting that damn curse take a hike!
Yeah sure Auggie will be no different next week with all his crazy teen stuff and
Foghorn will be full throttle getting into things
and I will be skiing once again.
but I will take this small victory
this curse removed and celebrate
I will celebrate with color
Wishing you all a curse free weekend.
