I err on the positive, but of course the negative rears its head at times only to be beaten back into submission with an imaginary hammer. It’s when I lay my head down and the darkness envelopes me in a very comforting way that the mind wanders and composes these blogs. This mornings walk in the dark was about:- Flexibility. That’s the key word you need if you live the life I live. But I chuckle as I reflect on being told “The problem with you is that you are inflexible” by a most inflexible employer earlier this year. I have to be flexible to be up at 4.00 am preparing to travel for the …
Time for your morning cuppa and a look at some of these beautiful quilts.
Oh my, its just. Its been a whirlwind of engagements, inspiration and sheer fun. I haven’t had tie to breathe let alone do the blog, so this is the best I can do for today folks. Enjoy.
