Off I go to lie in the grass and watch the clouds float by with a magic acorn cap cupped in the palm of my hand.
Nope. It is me most beholden. For certain. For always.
Whether you are coming for the whole retreat or only joining us for the Squam Art Fair Saturday night, we have been lucky enough to receive fabulous (and generous) support from some of our most favorite businesses and we wanted to let you know who they are!
Oh, this circle that we are a part of. How the love just goes round and round and round -- helping us through the darkness, keeping the light on the path ahead.
"I was so worn down and exhausted from recent experiences
I did not have the strength to handle simple everyday situations
anymore and did not even realize it. After coming back,
I have gotten stronger every day. I am able to tap into
the reserves that my time there gave me."
But, if we can actually align with the idea of rest, play :: HOLIDAY! :: then I think wonderful adventures can find us easily -- especially adventures that involve lying stretched out on the sofa with a bag of salt caramels at hand, oh wait, maybe that's just me?
"Harriet's web-class could not have come at a better time, when I was perfectly ready to create a physical representation of a heart, my heart. A heart full of love for life. A heart full of love for who I had finally become."
That's one hundred, but oh -- I have barely scratched the surface.
A THOUSAND kisses blown up into the wind like so many dandelion wishes!
So that was my moment. What was yours?
Every day is a new beginning, but for those big life transitions, some days can feel like you are standing on the cliff of the unknown.
So much for the dream of that 'quiet little knitting shop' . . . but maybe that's simply the nature of a creative endeavor?
"It really requires an open heart & vulnerability. (So damn scary to me). The more I practice letting my heart shine, the easier it becomes & I am the greater benefactor."
"My New Years Resolution in 2009 was this: I am not going to do anything that doesn’t make me happy. I left a very good job and set out to find my bliss."
Knitters are setting the world on fire!
