Breathes deeply and smiles. Well, all of our summer celebrations are done as of tomorrow. Thanks, all of you-my dear blog friends, for your kind and congratulatory comments. It's now time to set business and learning goals for the remainder of the year. Which is actually quite nice; I enjoy this brief period of relative normalcy before the brouhaha of holidays comes around.
Things are changing so rapidly; this year, I have one student, Jordan begins his college career this fall. Shudder. The label's expanding in new directions; increased demand for creativity there, as well as my writing projects (Moms of Hue, Tea & Honey Zines and, one TBA). We're still adding personal touches to our new place and learning to build upward versus outward to maximize space. And, somehow with all of this in front of me, it just feels normal. I guess the business of building and creating is my "thing".
I spent nearly a decade doing much of the same with a great deal more recognition and a nice amount of money-can't say that I ever looked forward to it though. I think the best part of getting older is unapologetically being and subsequently doing what you love. So, tell me, what's your "thing" that you love?
Peace sans apology
