August 26, 2018: Strange Jewels

I’m back! August was full of helping the family (Mom had a knee replacement) and preparing for a new school year with my students. I left little notes for myself in my studio knowing I was stepping away for several weeks. This was good because I just dove right back in and began building four new nest/house sculptures today.

I listened to the audiobook Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert while away from the studio. Seriously…it’s so good. I have never been a big fan of her earlier work, but recently I feel like she is speaking right to me. Love this….“The universe buries strange jewels deep within us all, and then stands back to see if we can find them.”
