I have, as you might have noticed,
been lying low.
Everything in my life has revolved around getting settled in,
Putting things away.
Getting used to and creating "home" in a new place.
It just feels like some doors have closed
and others are waiting to be opened.
I have felt a longing to reconnect with my art-making,
with my writing, because those things bring me a deep and abiding joy.
Right now, however, blogging (which sometimes takes me away from "real writing")
isn't high on my list of priorities.
So though I think it's imperative to cultivate and notice joy
(because where we put our focus is critical to what comes into our lives),
I have decided to take a break from hosting Share the Joy.
I may come back to it when I feel like it's time for company.
But right now,
it's time to nest and create the space I want to inhabit. . . .
beautiful, serene, uncluttered, and cozy.
It's come a long way since I moved in 11 weeks ago,
but I'm still in hibernation mode,
getting everything just right.
I hope you'll understand.
And when I reprioritize blogging and hosting
I hope you'll once again join in.
Be well, my friends.
