This is what I see when I look out my front window. I am up in a cloud of magnolia blooms and heady scent.
The last two weeks have been just crazed and now, apart from this evening's opening at Mr Kitly, everything is done and dusted. I'm going to the studio today and tomorrow I will play at being shopgirl and then retire to the couch in the evening. Perhaps I will even loll about a little on Sunday.
I still have lots of work to do and new projects to start, things that have been put on hold slightly- and it is also almost time to take a break. A friend of mine calls me a 'misanthrope'. I'm not really, I just need time away from people once in awhile, to stare at stunning views and marvel at nature, talk to no one and slow myself down, then I can be polite again. Sadly I am in need of this break a little earlier than usual this year..... I think most people should have a 'quiet time' now again, a time they spend time alone, getting comfortable with being solitary and quiet. It does me a world of good but I know quite a few people who just can't do but should!
For now I'll pretend to sit up high in the magnolia tree.
