spring break was medicinal this year. i gave my alarm clock the middle finger, slept in, disconnected completely in some spots and reconnected with others, mainly my art, writing and family. spent two gorgeous days outdoors, then watched the struggling green stuff get smothered by half a foot of snow, which is now going away as fast as it came. watched my artsygirl spend hours penning her version of the flopsy bunnies, of which there are now three volumes. checked books out at the library again, now that i've fessed up that i can't find south pacific and have paid the eye-crossing bill. felted a sweater for the first time, got friendly with my new computer, geared up for the second half of a doodleproject that will take all of this week and next to finish. that kind of work is restorative in itself - doing something i fully enjoy, even when it takes an all-consuming effort. on saturday this little bundle of healing herbs arrived from pixie, and a card of her bear painting, in which she describes how bears "teach us how to move slowly and powerfully, to thrive and to mother ourselves...important medicine for those attempting to summon inordinate amounts of energy to go beyond self-imposed limits." possibly a splendid coincidence, but i like to think that it was meant to arrive right then for a reason. thank you pixie, and a happy monday to you all!
