They say timing is everything and I'm a believer.  You work hard, things don't seem to be happening...you change your mindset and learn to enjoy the moment.  That moment where you feel just about caught up.  You take a deep breath and cling to the precious sound of silence.

Then, a day changes everything.  Things start happening.  They wanted that yesterday, no- you can't do that, find another way...how much can you cram in a day to get it done?

How do you do it?  How do you get it all done?  I don't know, for me it's just a matter of keeping that forward momentum going.  Don't stop to think about it all or it starts to fall in on you.  Just keep working.  Take pleasure in the accomplishments along the way.  Feel proud for every success and failure for all of it means that you're trying.

I say all of this like it's easy.  It's not and it's not supposed to be.

I have been working on class samples for upcoming workshops.  I'm in love with the projects I've created.  Really, really looking forward to them.  I'll post my schedule soon.  Here's a sneak.

I also have a few things ready for Etsy.  I'll load them in the next day or so as my schedule allows.  I've got 1st tests and 1st projects due for the semester.  Fun, but still work.

It's a rainy, gray day so I'll leave you with something more on the mellow side.  I could have done something a little more dreary, but this one is one of the few uplifting Cowboy Junkies songs, and a cover of a Townes Van Zandt song...
