Despite all of this years happy dances, I felt like this was a year spent getting used to falling just short…
Like a lot of us, I couldn’t keep the momentum going needed to balance everything out, life just seems to keep getting off center.
Dispite the effort… It’s not always enough to stay as optimistic, sometimes it’s a good time to find something else to keep busy with… My golden lining this year was the hundreds and hundreds of hours spent playing my violin. I’m not allowed to practice within earshot of the house, so I ended up obsessively practicing on local street corners and in the parks of our neighborhood. (I’ve since learned that someone enthusiastically playing, how-ever-badly, is someone that can make a good amount of people smile. It’s the counter-productive effort that people relate to and that is a very good thing.)
The other really big change lately has been creating a bit of breathing space by pulling on my garden boots. Reluctantly it’s time to knuckle under and invest the effort needed to make the changes that need to be made this new year to keep projects moving forward.
Woof… this is going to be a whole lot of work, most of which won’t fit nicely into the “glory” category. Honestly I’m expecting another bumpy year. No problem though… this year is ending on a positive note…we’ve got a handle on hard wiring the loaner kiln!
