from the depths of your experience

mary jane dodd

life is bitter sweet - a beautiful struggle... and it seems to be intensified by the holidays... i have been musing upon this, needing to put my hands on these words to fully embrace both sides... cutting antique paper that has been touched by others... finding the balance... 


it is our humanity that is universal - we share these things... one year may be filled with more of one than the other, but it evens out over time... for one, for all... 


so if it is more of a struggle year for you, a wish to find some of the beauty is being sent your way - it is there, just stay open...

I have a tendency to think in shorter periods of time..highs and lows in terms of weeks or days and sometimes hours. Its easier for me to remain in balance when thinking that way.

This is the first year that the holidays are not intense. This is the first year that I have BALANCED what I can do with the amount of time I have to do it.

Beautiful

Merry Christmas and Peace in your world.

As one year closes and a new year begins it is always a time of reflection. Your post is beautiful as is your heartfelt jewelry.

I just spent the day in our local bead store with my girlfriend. It is set up with tables where we can sit and create. This was her first time and she made jewelry for all of her family members....What a wonderful way to spend this hectic time of the year. She had a blast! I'm sure that this will become an annual tradition :O) Staying out of the mall brings me peace during this hectic time of the year.
