A new path


This spring I set out to explore
in much need of inspiration and creativity as I was feeling stagnate
 searching for a new path
I went  to university for a semester, studying psychology and fractal geometry (which was actually pretty tough)
Stepping outside my comfort zone really helped open my mind and heart
 but the shoe still didn't fit

 Early May I almost lost my horse Bella to colic- she had to go to the hospital for a week and lost over 200 lbs- which is pretty grave for a horse.
Nursing her back to health which included
medication and feeding her every 2 hours for the first 10 days,
talk about reliving mother hood all over again.
Bella is once again her happy horse self and gained all her weight back.
Panicked doesn't even describe what I went through.
Waves of gratitude washed over me that her life was saved.

 Amerced myself in a lovely summer here in Big Sky country- lots of swimming, sup boarding, floating on the rivers, fly-fishing and hiking with family and friends.
Summer is like an elixir
Hard when it abruptly comes to end.
Canadian geese fly over head reminding us the cooler weather is arriving 
and fall descend upon us once again in the mountains.
My oldest headed out to college in Missoula and our daughter started college locally
wasn't it just yesterday that they started first grade?

 During the summer we built a little studio in the back of our house.
No longer  allowed to dye yarn in the kitchen, my husband kicked me out! 
Wiping down splashed granite counter tops and mopping up color stained wood floors was probably not the best solution.
This will be my own little creative space
where I can be messy and dream up beautiful colorscapes for yarn again.

I'm back to photography and I'm back to blogging- oh how I have missed it!

Time is what I needed
 think thoughts through
clear my head
away from routine
open my mind and brighten my heart space.
the road leads me back again
all I needed was a few degrees of adjustment in order to find the right path
home again.

I hope you all are well  - wishing you peace and love.
 Until next time.

  5. Welcome back! I am glad your horse is healthy again. I saw a first huge group of storks passing this week- a sure sign that autumn is approaching (even if it is still way too hot for my taste). Wish you a lot of creative hours in your new studio.

  13. Sometimes all we need is to walk away from what we are used to...and enjoy new things. Like attending university, and embracing the season. Then when we return our outlook is so different :0) so thankful that your horse is better. I miss my dog something fierce, this will be our second year without him, and it still hurts immensely...I know how you would have felt if Bella would no longer be with you.

    But enough of that! So good to read your words again :0) be blessed!
