I had such a hard time make the swich from Thanksgiving/Autumn to the holiday season. with Shu Shu's support, I just did it one morning, the wheat got wrapped in plastic, teepees tucked away, and the pumpkins composted. for two hours I made wreathes, stuck greenery on every surface, put candles about. Eva's been wondering when we'll ever make the switch, finally we're here.
My journal began as a virtual baby book for my children and has shifted recently to include my daily life as a mother and a woman emerging from the early years of small children. I no longer bemoan my lack of a creative life, on closer observation it is all a creation.
