the days after the new moon ....

Konstantin Somov

sheilas new clothes from me 
thank you dear sheila who visits me every year from America like a precious beautiful bird,surprises me and  finds perfect pieces for herself that you 'd swear I had made just for her (maybe thats true)

I am struggling with a lot of new changes and finding my confidence very low and all at sea. The life of a creative person is such , it is like being in withdrawal when the work wont come , all I can do is to keep trying. In the interim here is some of my world , the positive bits anyway.

change is upon us.....

 me yesterday at my very quite market stall
 a few of my favourite "bits of silliness"I got in england.
 an interesting find in a charity shop , it is from 1981 the designer julie shearer and its complete , the colours are so beautiful
 my 1960 shell book of animals (all of them ALL TOGETHER)is fascinating me , I really really love it.
today was SO so so so so so so beautiful,and I could not stop looking at my marigolds and cockscombs together in the orange enamel jug.

well I am back , sort of .........
looking and finding my way , very slowly , there is so much going on here that its hard to focus.
I aim to remain serene and present and take it from there (ever hopeful hee hee )
oh this video is well worth watching.
