daring to be...

I am listening to the sounds of Glee on Fox and the common theme is "daring to be" true to oneself. I am reminded that some days just showing up for the studio is enough to keep me on my journey. I worked on a couple projects and let the Christmas carols flood over my body...filling me a gentle flow that guided me until it was after 4 and I needed to get to Michael's to pick up a couple more supplies for the troops in Afghanistan for their Christmas surprise packages. Ken brought home Chinese Happy Family and we are both having a warming cup of coffee so we can stay awake. I want to work and he is watching the OSU Buckeyes Basketball game versus Duke. It is the simple pleasures that remind us that we are Lucky individuals.

I was reading SOMERSET Studio for Nov/Dec and there is an interesting article about journaling your year. I always think this is a Great idea....but it is very difficult to commit to making a whole year of anything. I am having trouble catching up with my tiny but beautiful to me Inchies. I need to photograph the ones I have completed and finish the last 6 or 7before the end of December. I have to make cookies for the cookie exchange for the Downtown Cookie Walk for the Midland ...I was supposed to make chocolate chip but I have the ingredients for Peanut Butter cookies so this is it! The weather is quietly moving into a wintry mix of sleet and light snow right now...tomorrow could be an interesting ride into the studio. i am sending you all gentle thoughts of appreciation for your support...I am moving very slowly but I am moving
still...I am still here. Imagine and Live in in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

  1. Well, here's hoping you made in today safely. No snow out here, just cooler weather...in the mid-50's, low 60's. I think I'm going to do that in my studio, put on some Christmas carols...I hope it works...I'm feeling very much out of kilter...perhaps I should take advantage of that gym I pay for every month and don't utilize it...treadmill is sounding better and better...plug in my tunes on my MP3 player and walk to Pavarotti!! It's going to be a "Driving Miss Daisy Day," so maybe I'll need the extra push...or not!! LOL

    Have a great day and please drive carefully.
