take flight

blues 1, originally uploaded by Sea Dream Studio.

Ah, what a beautiful morning in the Dallas 'burbs! I think this must be what the weather is like in Nirvana!
Today I am going to straighten up my studio space and get busy on some new projects. This hiatus from non-virtual art has been refreshing. I feel energized and focused!!
LOL! My parrot just flew by. He is so fun and GREEN! I adore his peppy spirit!! I was meant to have bird in my home! What a joy!!
Hope your Saturday is full of wonderful things!

My boys have survived the first two days of school and better yet I have survived all the paperwork!!! Having only 2 kids in school is like a walk in the park. For years I had to do everything times 4. My oldest son is married and done with school and my daughter is in college. Now I have a high school junior and a 7th grader. Easy~peasy...
Now I am ready to return to my studio after a lovely summer-long hiatus. Well, I am doing LOTS of digital work, but it is time for some non-virtual art. I can't wait... well, maybe another lazy week, but then I swear I'm getting busy! Really!!!

feeling dreamy...

Oh, what a lazy summer I've had... nice and easy...
School starts on Monday, so it will be the end of my 3 months of sloth. I am eager to get back in my studio. I have so many projects I want to start (and finish! LOL)!
Hope your last days of summer are filled with smiles and sunshine... and a dream or two.

Cape Hatteras,NC

Does place matter so much to everyone? I'm not sure. I am deeply effected by my environment. I love for my home to peaceful, pretty, reflective of who I am, of my family and our shared journey.
I like north Texas. The wide open skies are truly inspiring. The flat land feels grand and vast. Our winters are fairly short and mild. I love the sunshine and even the heat. The schools are good. Crime is low.
But my heart's home will always be by the sea. I grew up visiting North Carolina's coast. The Atlantic is fierce and beautiful. I have been to many beaches and now prefer the Caribbean's gentle azure waters, but anywhere near the ocean works for me. As a child I would love that first whiff of sea air that you could smell, well before the water came into view... and then that first glimpse of the ocean that never failed to thrill. Every time, every single time, I have those experiences my heart is filled and know that I am "home".
Someday I will live near the coast. Which coast? I am not certain, but that is my dream, my plan...

my bad...

Oh, I have neglected this little ole blog so badly this summer. I must do better! My knee injury and subsequent time being an invalid really allowed me to see that it is fine to take it easy. Okay, so maybe I've taken it a bit too far (LOL!), but I have discovered that everything pretty much just rolls along with or without me. No one went naked when I couldn't do laundry or starved when I was unable to cook (oh, those blissfull days!!). It is very freeing to realize that you are merely a pebble in the river. Your presence is not so vital, nor is your asence so keenly felt.
I am busy, but not frantic. Inspired, but not racing to my studio to create. I am percolating, I think... stewing ideas and enjoying my favorite time of the year. I am loving every minute of sunshine and savoring these last few weeks with my kids out of school. Soon the house will be quiet (well, we do have a parrot now, so not THAT quiet) and I will find my way back up the stairs to where my glitter and ephemera wait. For now, I am content to make digital creations and shut my laptop when the beautiful Texas sunshine calls me.
