And now there are 8 ...
February's collection - month two of my '52 weeks : bead sketches' project - is finished.
More playing relentlessly,
more diving deep,
more showing up faithfully.
I also did a lot of wondering about why I haven't imposed
a project like this on myself before. In truth I suppose because the time is NOW
and I wasn't where I needed to be to take this on before now.
Just showing up to do the work has great benefits.
I'll write more on that subject later as thoughts solidify, but for now
I've an amazing sense of freedom with this work / play
that I've never,
There's surely a lesson in this approach for me
although I can't put it all into words yet.
For this month I thought it might be of interest if I noted where
my inspiration, or word prompts, or weekly idea came from.
They are written below each photograph with links.
~ bugle bead inspiration arose from HERE ~
~ exploring some thoughts about THIS ~
~ describing in materials the meaning of THIS PHRASE ~
~ experimenting with the pattern of THESE ~
Feels so good to be back with my beads.

Postscript: A few hours after I published this post I came across some
excellent words that seem to fit right in so I've come back to note them.
You don’t need more motivation or inspiration to create the life you want. You need less shame around the idea that you’re not doing your best. You need to stop listening to people who are in vastly different life circumstances and life stages than you tell you that you’re just not doing or being enough. You need to let timing do what it needs to do. You need to see lessons where you see barriers. You need to understand that what’s
right now becomes inspiration later.
