Annette: I woke up to rain and cold this Sunday and wasn't sure I was inclined to leave the cozy apartment. I am truly grateful I that I bundled up, put Muse on the iPod and jumped on the train. We are blessed to have a local Healing Arts center in the area who generously threw a Holiday party of sorts, with free treatments, raw organic chocolate, belly-dancing, singing, and free cups of tea. My dearest friends trickled in, and we connected, chatted, received reiki, massage, and acupuncture among us. I was gifted a smudge stick made of homegrown lavender from friends' garden. This Sunday I am positively aglow with the blessings of kindred community, and the amazing souls I have in my circle of healing and growth! P.S. Erin, I wish you were here!
Erin: A busy weekend spent mostly in the lovely home and Blackbird Studio of a most lovely and peaceful Rae. Marinating in good vibes and warm cider. Making money and gathering some much needed steam to keep moving forward with my bravery and learning. Feeling in my element…finally. An overdue family gathering on Sunday with thoughts of felt berries dancing in my head. Five dozen buried cherry cookies for the cookie exchange. Good raw wool being put to beauty. Christmas movies and hot soapy water. Life is so damned sweet.
