“What in your life is calling you? When all the noise is silenced, the meetings adjourned, the lists laid aside … what still pulls on your soul?’
—Terma Collective, “The Box”

It’s the calm before the storm, literally. The sun is bright on the snow, but the weather prediction is for an ice storm tonight, which will most likely knock out the electricity.

We are used to it and have firewood and candles at the ready. I also stocked up on a few new library books to keep me entertained. What DID we do before the Internet became such an integral part of our lives?

This little beauty came in the mail today from Brenda in Muncie, IN. Brenda took my Joy of Rust Dyeing workshop in September. That was such a fun group and Brenda sent this journal cover to me as a thank you! What a total surprise.

She had no way of knowing the notebook that goes everywhere with me had just been filled and I needed another. Coincidence? I think not!

As we each deal with recent economic changes, I extend my wishes for a safe and warm holiday season, filled with the joy of family and friends—and maybe a small treat or two.

What a lovely gift. I have just seen a photo of your piece 'Gravid' for Collage Mania 2009 on Virginia Spiegel's blog - it is beautiful.
