color, a quickie collage

Two and a half weeks later, and what do I have to show for it? One big to-do list slowly getting done, half of an a-line skirt sewn, a stack of wedding invitations, a pile of stuff for sale, a pile of stuff to pack, a happy client, a healthier me.

I keep telling myself to take it one day at a time and do the best that I can. If I do that much, I’m okay. I’m fine.

Thank goodness I have an army of support and love behind me. I am nourished by phone and email conversations with my girlfriends, dates with Rama, lunches with Rima and veg-out sessions at Mom & Dad’s house. I am fed by a steady stream of music, a stack of magazines and vanilla-almond tea.

    my motto: everything is in flow.
