I’ve been gone a while, but not without reason. I’ve been giving myself time and space to see which way I want to go next. It's easy to feel like there's not enough time. There's a constant sense of urgency, the need to rush & push & do. Some of us just end up checking out & doing nothing, because it’s all too much. I will neither to rush past the important bits nor give up & check out. I will find that path between paths, where I can both think and act, allowing time for all of it.
I’ve spent 9 months now, allowing this next step to make itself known to me. When I haven’t been working as a Covid-dodging nurse, I've been sewing a summer wardrobe, reading fiction & non, dreaming, tending my hearth & home, talking to my plants & cat. I've been refusing to make any new jewelry. I knew I needed to give myself that space. Only now, with June's full moon, am I finally ready to begin revealing the next facet of Vildmark Studio.
I will be sharing more in the weeks & months ahead. For now, I'll just say, I hope you are all well & navigating safely through these turbulent times.
