This is this morning.
A bit broken.
I am SO SO TIRED.
It's nearly the end of (a VERY LONG) Term.
It's Winter Solstice.
This spoon that was my absolute fave of the batch I made & it broke as I picked it up to load into the kiln.
A reminder of the impermanence of everything.
Nothing is static. Nothing remains the same.
Lots of things are out of our control.
But it is ok.
I sigh heavily as I feel the loss of hard work & of something I felt proud of.
But then I breathe deeply & let it go.
I've been working really really hard & helping get my kids through a massive few weeks with exams & some big extra-curricular events that mean quite a few 14hr work/school days.
We all need a break.
This morning I am sorting through all the many many orders from yesterdays sale.
I am so grateful for the support of my work.
Whenever my work sells I always have a feeling of amazement- that people want to buy my work! Wow!
So thank you to each & every one of you who follow here & click 'like' & say lovely things & to those of you who can buy my work & DO.
Little bits of my heart are in everything I make & it is a beautiful thing receive your support.
I feel proud, humble, thrilled, joyful & exhausted.
Broken yet whole.
Such great reminders of being alive.
And for that I am grateful.
