Forgive my absence of late. We have had family illnesses and financial difficulty that sucks the creative spirit and decorative words away.
I am trying to focus on pure, healing thoughts and budget solutions.
Sales are slow at etsy and the weather is hot here in Missouri so we have spent some time outside, I try to hit the post office and the store in the early hours so the kids can play a little bit outside before we melt.
Pinky never wants to go inside. She cries like I've taken a favorite toy away when I come to from passing out from the heat and state that we must go inside.
Sometimes we fill the kiddie pool, but that's only satisfying TO THE LITTLE PEOPLE WHO FIT IN THE POOL.
Anyway, I've posted the above photo because every time I see my own Apple and Eve birds or anything Eva makes ~ I think "purity".
I'm sure it's her heart and soul infused inside each lovely creation, shining out in wondrous glory.
I suppose I've made the inaccurate judgments about some people who have that purity of insight, that depth of feeling, that fearlessness of feeling. That they haven't truly felt despair and hopelessness in their life. They haven't experienced loss or grief.
If they had they would shy away from thought processes and world problems that require you to research and examine. Not embrace them.
Eva is different. She is not inexperienced in life's difficult lessons of hardship and grief.
And yet she remains beautifully in touch with wholeness and purity.
I'm refreshed every time I get to touch base with her.
